How to make a paper purse

First, let’s see what we need to make this purse.

What you need:

We need colored paper. I have taken the piece in two colors. (Red and pink) You can pick any color paper you like.

Need more scissors and glue

An ornament to make our purse beautiful. I’ve got a paper quilling butterfly of my design.

I have taught you how to make a quilling butterfly in my previous article. You can also make a quilling butterfly if you want.

Way of the making

The things we need to make a pepper purse are now ready. Let’s see how to create this purse.

Step 01

First, I fold the pink paper I took.

The paper is folded on the long side. Then we can cut to the size we want.

Step 02

Then fold the paper into three sections. Fold into three equal parts.

Step 03

Cut four pieces out of the folded paper.

Cut only four parts. Keep the rest of the paper separate.

Step 04

Fold a strip on one side of the four long sides of the cut.

Fold a strip on all four sides.

Step 05

Then glue the two folded sides together.

Glue the two parts of the four together. Paste like a box. It becomes apparent when you see the photo.

Step 06

Next, cut out as much of the red paper as possible to cover the gap in the box that is the same height as the box we made.

Since we have to cover four sides, we need to cut the paper to fit all four sides.

Instead of cutting exactly the gap, you need to cut a little more. Or because this paper cannot paste it.

Fold the cut into four pieces and cut into four long sections.

Fold a strip on either side of the four lengths of the cut. Fold inwards from both sides.

Step 08

Glue the four folded pieces together on both sides of the two boxes we made. After pasting the red parts, one side of the two box-like parts should be left open.

Those are the two pockets in our purse. We’re done with the two pockets.

Step 09

Glue the two pocket pieces together on both sides. Next, we have to create the cover of the purse.

Before that, paste the ornament you took into your wallet anywhere you like. So, I stuck my butterfly in the middle.

Step 10

Next, we need to cut a part of the same size (pink) to the size of the purse we made.

That part needs to be folded into three parts. Fold the first part a little less than the second part of the average size.

Now we see that part in three parts, and there are bends.

Step 11

We folded two-thirds of the folded parts into small pieces.

Cut small strips out of the red paper we have.

Then wrap the red tape around the two folded pieces like a border.

All you have to do is glue the red stripes around the two new parts.

Next, stick the non-red stripe on the inside of the wallet on the inside. The wallet should be folded so that it can be opened and closed.

Step 13

We’re pretty much done with the purse now. But I would like my wallet to have a handle. So, for one, I’m going to stick two straps so I can hang the purse in my hand.

You can design and finish the purse the way you have it now.

If you put a strap on your purse, cut a long red strap. Instead of just putting on a belt, I like to put on a nice little belt. So, I add a little pink stripe to it.

Cut a long strip of red paper and a few strips of pink paper.

Step 14

Stick the cut pink strips neatly on the red tape. I glued the pink strips across the red stripe.

Then attach the red ribbon to the purse on both sides.
