Handbag Style Gift Box/Bag in Frosted Florals Specialty DSP

One of the first items on my pre-order Wish List from the new Seasonal Autumn/Winter Catalogue was the very beautiful Frosted Florals Specialty Designer Series Papers.  They are right up my street.  The colours are all very soft and the papers have a really lovely pretty shimmery quality.

I decided to showcase one of the designs from the papers for this cute little handbag style gift box.  It is designed specifically for small light-weight treats/gifts.   Anything too heavy/bulky would not be suitable as the bag would definitely pop open.

I have put together a video providing step by step instructions.   The important factor is that the little slot where the strap feeds through should not be placed low on the front panel.  It needs to be at least half way down the panel, but preferably a little higher than that.  This will help the handbag to remain closed and the gift secure.

Hope you like it.  Thanks for looking.

Bye for now,

Linda xx

    1. Thank you so much! I feel the same way about stuff on my blog! Come visit sometime

  3. I love this little bag Linda. Would you be able to just put both the circles together, then close the bag so the one with the glue dot is in the right place?

  4. This is so awesome!! So elegant! We have a group of ladies called secret sisters at church. we each have a secret sister to pray for all year and then at end of year she is revealed at a banquet. These would be awesome favors!!!! Thanks so very much for all your ideas. I wish you were closer.

  5. An amazing little treat bag Linda and you are certainly correct about the DSP gorgeous too. TFS :O) xxx

  6. This is adorable; can't wait to try it. And by the way, your tutorials are SO well done and easy to follow. Thank you!

  7. I am having trouble with the 1 inch piece that holds the latch in place. It keeps coming off. Do you have any suggestions? I am making this for an English Tea Party present and I didn't want to find out when I gave them out that the latch didn't hold. Does the red two-sided tape work really well? thank you and I agree with everyone else. You are amazing!

  8. Just found this video and am now in the process of making this gorgeous little bag. Thank you for sharing. Very clear tutorial. And I just love the Daisy flower so am now making a tonne of these for my daughter, Daisy. Merry Christmas Linda and thank you for the lovely past year of training.
