Scrapbook Page ~ Purse

Supplies Needed:
  • 1 ~ 12x12 sheet of cardstock
  • 1 ~ 4x4 sheet of cardstock (same as 12x12)
  • 14 ~ 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 pieces of DSP
  • 2 ~ 12" pieces of ribbon
  • 1 ~ Velcro dot
  • Sticky strip
  • Crop-a-dile
  • Cutter, score tool, ruler, pencil, embellishments
  1. Score your 12x12 sheet of paper at 4" and 8" then turn 90 degrees and score again at 4" and 8". When completed you should have 9 squares 4x4.
  2. Score your four outside corners from the outside edge of that individual square to the other corner of that individual square (so it will be from the outside in).
  3. On two middle squares opposite from each other you will score that individual square from the 2" point to the inside corner of the individual square so when finished it will look like <> on the other side.

  4. Fold all your score lines to loosen your paper up. Then set aside for a few.
  5. Take four of your 3 3/4 x3 3/4 pieces of DSP and cut them from one corner to the other so you have triangles when you are done and place them on the four outside individual corners of your 12x12 scored piece of paper.
  6. Take four of your 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 pieces of DSP and cut them from the 1 7/8 mark to the corners on each one to make your <> pieces and attach just the triangle part of them to your 12x12 piece of paper on both the inside and outside.
  7. Take three of your 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 pieces and place them down the center of your 12x12 scored paper on the same side as your corners/centers already done.

  8. Take two of your 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 pieces and put them on the outside top/bottom center.
  9. Take your last 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 piece and attach it to your lid. Then score your lid in half at the 2" mark. Fold it in half and punch your holes for your ribbon.

  10. Attach your ribbon side to side. So one handle is on each side of the scored line, you don't want them to go over the scored lines being from front to back or it won't open right.

  11. Using sticky strip, attach your lid to your 12x12 piece on the outside leaving approx. a 1/4 between the fold and the top of your 12x12 paper. This leaves some room for it to fold up properly.

  12. Fold your scrapbook page into a purse and attach your velcro dot in place to hold it shut.

  13. Embellish it any way desired and your done.

I would love to see your completed ones if you want to send me a link for them. I also can email you the directions w/a diagram of where the score lines are if needed. If you need any help, just email me at
