Quick and Easy Christmas Projects - Day 1

Hi everyone.  The Christmas count down has begun.  Can you feel the excitement in the air!  Everyone is busy shopping and preparing for the big day. 

If you need to create something quick for the holidays, stop by my blog over the next 10 days and  I will show you some fun, quick and easy projects.

Today, I'm going to show you some purses.  They may be small, but they can hold so many items.  Just perfect for make up, gift cards and or even jewelry.
 


You can get 4 purses from 1 sheet of 12" x 12" cardstock.  Cut cardstock into 4 pieces, each 6" x 6".   Double sided cardstock works best because it's sturdier and the print is then seen inside and out.


Score at 1" and 5" for the sides. 
Rotate and score at 2 1/2" and 3 1/2" to create the bottom. 
Fold the sides along the score lines, then fold up the bottom.
Add Scor-tape along the top edges and add a 1" strip of black cardstock across the top of the purses.
 



Cut cardstock handles 3/4" x 10" and adhere them with brads.



 
 
There you go.  Perfect for a gift card or whatever you want to put inside.   Quick and easy and so much fun to make in less than 30 minutes.
 
Don't forget to stop by daily as I will have new projects to share.
 
Merry Christmas.
