Summer of Color #5

This is my first  project of Summer of Color #4.
I love to make paper purses so I took the three colors...red, royal blue, and a dot of baby blue.
The purse really looks black and that is so disappointing because it is really pretty paper.
I took a 12 X 12 piece of paper and scored it at 2 3/4 at both ends.  so really it's 2 3/4 from the left then the right side
then turn it around and score at 4 1/2 the same way.
then you pinch in the sides, it looks like a "m" then all you do is decorate.
I found it on You Tube under paper purses. 
I punched out these flowers and put a gem in the middle.  So upset that the paper looks black but my son's told me yes that is royal blue mom.

Since you know me I will go make another one the color I think is blue..lol

  1. Very cute! I'm not sure that a paper purse would hold up to the abuses I put my own purse through, but it would make a delightful gift bag!
