I have had numerous requests for more information on how to make the little nugget purse.  So that is what I have for you today.  This project was presented on stage at the Chattanooga Half-Day regional last fall by Susan Barron.  These were so cute and Susan was very nice to give me the measurements.

Here is a picture of my purse again.

Each little purse hold 2 nuggets.

Designer Series paper is 3×4-3/4 , score long side a ½” on each side. Score 1”, 1-1/2”, 2-1/2” on outsides only.  Look at the drawing to see where you clip the sides to create the tabs and cut away the top tabs to create the lid.  The 2 corners on the lid are punched with the corner rounder.

  1. Add a 6” piece of ribbon for the handle.  It works best to attach the ribbon with glue dots in between the side flaps.
  2. Add a button to the front for decoration and a ¼” piece of a Velcro dot under the lid to hold it shut.
  3. Use 3” x 1” pieces of Designer Series paper to cover the nuggets.
  4. Stick the nuggets inside the purse.

I hope that gives you enough to make your own.

Here is one more picture – this is the DSP after it is scored and cut.

Have a great day!
