Ghirardelli Purses

Hello,

I love to make mini purses.  I made these small purses before for my friend's daughter bridal shower HERE.  I always changed my purse size to fit whatever I am going to put in there.  This time I am making the purses to hold the Ghirardelli chocolates. The chocolates are about 2 inches square each so my purses measured 2 1/2 x 2 1/4 inches.  The handles are 5 1/2 inches long.  I used grosgrain ribbon for the handle.  I tried using card stocks for the handles. I didn't like it because the handle got crashed when stacked.




The flowers were all made by me. :)

For my purses I used 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches and score as in the picture.

For the rest of the tutorial check here.

Thanks for looking.

Helen
