Origami Mini Handbag with Video Tutorial

Today’s project is a mini Origami handbag, perfect for a party favor for holding treats!

Here’s a different view:

And here’s what the bottom looks like:

I’d like to give credit to fellow German demonstrator Nadine Köller from Stempelmami for this fun little handbag! She has a great photo tutorial, so be sure to check it out. I added some Paper Pixie tips and tricks to my project, so here’s my video tutorial:

I found my velcro dots on Amazon HERE. But you could also close this bag with a binder clip, staple, or magnets! If you do use magnets, be sure to use a sturdy glue like E6000 to make sure the magnets stay put!

This adorable little handbag fits a Lindor Truffle perfectly! Wouldn’t these make great table favors for a party?

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful & blessed weekend!
