DIY Purse: Delightful Daisy Gift Bag

Hello crafting friend,

Hope you are having an awesome week. Come away with me to creative moments...!

Easter is just a week away and this project would be great to create as a special gift holder for grandkids, nieces, preschool kids, or a special friend.

Get out your favorite 12x12 papers and crafty stash..it's create time!



Step 1) Start with a 12” x 12” paper from the Peacock Paisley Paper Collection and using your Scor Pal Measuring and Scoring Board score at the 2¾” mark and the 9¼” mark. Turn your paper 90 degrees and score at the 4½” mark and the 7½” mark.

Step 2) Turn your paper 90 degrees and score at the 4½” mark and the 7½” mark.

Step 3) Fold on all four score lines.

Step 4) With the side that is scored and folded at the 2 ¾” and 9 ¼” mark at the top, starting at the horizontal fold line, create a corner by folding back and up along the side onto itself, creating a square corner. 

Step 5) Do the same for all four sides. At this point, when folded it will resemble a box.

Step 6) To create a pleat in the side of the purse, fold the side in an inverted V toward the center of the purse.

note: Also fold from the other corner upward to finish the inverted V.  Repeat on the other side. This is how the folds should look when completed.

Step 7) Cut four pieces ½” x 12” out of the daisy paper for the handles.  Cut two pieces 2” x 12” out of the navy paper for the top of the purse.  Using the Luggage and Tags Die, cut a small tag from the Peacock Paisley Paper for the purse latch.

Step 8) With Zip Dry Paper Glue adhere two of the ½” x 12” daisy paper pieces together to create a handle. Repeat for the second handle.  Run Lemonade Chalking Ink along the edges of the handles to finish the edges.  Set handles aside for now. 

Step 9) Take the two 2” x 12” pieces of navy paper and score each of them on the 1” mark. 

Step 10) Measure top of purse for exact measurement and cut off excess of navy strip. It should be 6½”.  Adhere navy strip to top of each side of purse with Zip Dry Glue.

Step 11) Using the piercing tool and mat from the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit make holes in top of the purse 1” from each side and ½” from top.  Make holes in handles ½” from each end.  Secure handles onto purse with brads.

Step 12) Add Lion's Mane Glitter to daisy flower center on tag and Light Green Rhinestone to hole on tag with Dries Clear Adhesive. 

Step 13) Adhere bottom of tag to back of purse, folding over to create a latch.

Step 14) Adhere self-adhesive Velcro to keep purse closed.

note: This is how the purse will look open with handles attached and the latch adhered.

Step 15) With Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink stamp the daisies from Delightful Daisies Cling Stamp Set on yellow paper from the Peacock Paisley Paper Collection and with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink stamp the leaves from Delightful Daisies Cling Stamp Set on green paper from the Peacock Paisley Paper Collection.  Die cut with the coordinating Delightful Daisy Die, HCD1-760.

Step 16) Shape the daisies and the leaves with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. (tutorial here)

With Dries Clear Adhesive add Crystal Glitter to the daisies and then layer the largest three daisies on top of each staggering the petals, adhering in the center using Dries Clear Adhesive. Finish by adding a Cameo Sparklet to the daisy center.

Step 17) Then add one large leaf and one small leaf, the daisy, the Want2Scrap Silver Swirls Rhinestones and the Light Green Rhinestones, as shown to the purse front.

Step 18) The finished purse is 6½” x 4½” (not including the handle) and can hold small candies, trinkets, a gift card or a money gift.
