Quick and easy purse from just one 12 x 12 piece of cardstock!

WELCOME 
TO THE
KOALA T CRAFTS 
BLOG!


Did you see these cute purses all over the internet?!
Ever wonder how they are made? 

They look complicated don't they?
BUT
They're not!!

You can view the video HERE, but I'll also include the 
measurements just below for your convenience!


Here are the measurements all in one tidy photo!


Using one 12 x 12 double sided sheet of card stock,

Score one side at 2 1/2 and 9 1/2 
(turn 90 degrees)
Score 1/2, 5, 7, and 11 1/2

Crease all your score lines for the rest of the card
to come together easily.

THE TRICKY PART: (you might want to watch the video for this)
You're going to need to fold the 5 and 7 inch scores down to meet the 2 1/2 and 9 1/2 in score lines to create the 
diagonal creases shown in the diagram above.
