Nugget Purse

I came across Karen's 2 pack Nugget Purse, but again - who am I to leave well enough alone, LOL! I made it bigger to hold three nuggets. Who can stop at just two?! (ok, let's be honest - who can stop at THREE, LOL!)

I used double-sided cardstock by K&Co. cut to 4" x 4 1/2".

With the 4 1/2" side across the top of the Scor-pal, score at 1", 1 1/2", 3", and 3 1/2".

Turn cardstock so the 4" side is across the top. Score at 1/2" and 3 1/2".

As shown in the picture above, cut and remove the 1/2" side sections from the 3" score line to the 4 1/2" end. Also, round the two corners on the end and add red-lined tape (or a good glue) where shown in the picture.

Cut a 7" piece of ribbon (no wider than 1/2") and place it on the inside of the box with the red-lined tape. The picture above gives better details.

Now adhere the sides together with the remaining two pieces of red-lined tape, placing the tiny tabs on the inside of the box.

The top flap will tuck down inside the "purse".

Embellish as desired. I left it pretty simple and just added a ribbon and bow with more red-lined tape.

Here's a close-up of how I did the "faux bow".

Come visit me sometime at Angel Stamper 2!

Enjoy your weekend, Tootles!
