Circle handbag card






I designed this using the Cricut Design Studio and George and Basic Shapes cartridge.
The handbag itself is made up from a circle, with a few cuts here and there!! The handbag when assembled measures, 2.75" length by 1.25" depth by 1.5" height, without the flap and 1.75" with the flap. Height with handle is 4.5". This is ideal for putting in party favours, for any occasion. If you'd like the cut file simply click upon the title.

Instructions on making this miniture handbag:

1. Cut out all the cuts on the pages of the cut file in desired paper of your choice.
2. Bring the area between each side of cut area in the circle forward and crease this will show as the front/back of the handbag.
3. Turn the circle around, and bring the edges up and crease to edge of previous creased areas, these will become the sides of the bag.
4. Then crease the end pieces and adhere with glue/adhesive on the inside of the handbag.
5. Fold the top edge of the front/back of the handbag over to give a neat straight edge, adhere into place with glue.
6. The flap will require inking on the edges, fix the hexagon edge on the back on the bag; fix velcro dot under the circle and the receiving in the handbag this will allow you to open and close the bag.
7. Adhere the handle to the sides of the handbag using brads.
8. Decorate with your choice of Embellishments.

Enjoy!
