Envelope Punch Board Mini Handbag with Facebook Live Tutorial

Today’s project is from my Facebook Live broadcast last night – a mini handbag using the Envelope Punch Board!

I’d like to credit Elaine Jackson (Papercraft Button) for the original project. She designed this handbag using a 12″ x 12″ piece of Designer Series Paper. Her video tutorial appears to no longer be available, so I can’t remember the score line measurements, but when I figure it out, I’ll update this post! And Brigitte Keiling came up with a mini version of Elaine’s creation using a 6″ x 6″ piece of Designer Series Paper. CLICK HERE to see her version! These two women are so inspiring! I’m grateful for their talents!

I just LOVE this pattern from the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper! It’s beautiful as a little handbag too! Don’t you think Vera Bradley should offer handbags in this pattern? Here’s my video tutorial from last night – I decided to show my smiley face this time:

Here’s a link to the Velcro dots I used to close this sweet little handbag: http://a.co/37Z41o2.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!
