Sandwich Baggy Purse Tutorial

Take a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of cardstock and a fold top sandwich baggy, Score the piece of cardstock at 3 1/2 inches and 5 inches, Take the top of the baggy and fold it towards the back so it's even at the top of the opening. Place adhesive on the top of the cardstock and place the baggy on the adhesive like shown in above picture.

Fold the scored area.

Put adhesive on the top of the inner and outter part of the cardstock then take the baggy and open it to the other side of the cardstock folding the baggy over the outside of the cardstock.

Cut 2 pieces of cardstock 8 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches

Stamp them and score them at 3.1 and 5 inches.

Attach them to the top part of the purse with your adhesive covering the folded baggy.

Cut 2 pieces of cardstock 1 2 1/2 x 2 inches the other 1 1/2 x 1 inch and stamp them or decorate however you'd like.

Place the 2 1/2 x 2 inch cardstock over the over lapping cardstock on each side of the purse.

Here's how both sides should look so far.. almost finished..

Take a 9 inch piece of ribbon attaching each side to the outter part of the bag with brads. leaving about a 1/4 inch or so hanging down from the brad.
