Craft a Hand Bag by your own self!!!

Hey there,

Today I am going to share my favorite craft. This is HANDBAG by simply nothing. Yes! you can make your own clutches and wallets by following this tutorial.


  1. Chart Paper/ Colored Paper.
  2. Hard Board or you can use a cereal box.
  3. Wrapping Paper or Fabric.
  4. Glue
  5. Scissors.
  6. Button/Magnetic Tape.

  1. Decide the size of your purse.
  2. Cut your cereal box according to it. Cut 2 sides of it. This will be your purse base.
  3. For the inside, Cut chart paper of the same size as your box cut out. I have chosen Red to be my inside color since my outer color was on red base. Paste the paper on both pieces of the box.
  4. To make the base of the purse. Cut out a piece of box. Remember it's length should be equal to your purse's length and width should be as wide as you want. See Picture NO.3. I have pasted red on one side of my hard board/cereal box cuttings. And Black on the base piece. 
  5. As you can see the sides of my bags are showing 2 colors; black and red. This I did to give it a Jazzy look. You can either use only one color or you can add more colors. Just contrast it with your outer color or pattern. Once you have decided which color you are using. Make fan folds as you can see in the picture below.
  6. Stick these on both edges. 
  7. Now stick the base to both parts of your bag.
  8. Finally cover it with the outer fabric as you can see in NO.4. Make sure to keep its length a bit more than actual for folding purpose.
  9. Secure all your glued ends and let them dry. Your purse should look like NO.8 from above.
  10. If you have any leather straps you can add for handles.
  11. If you want you can add button to make a clasped hand bag.

All done. You can make your own clutches, hand bags by simple variations and your creativity.
