purse tote

I am doing a workshop on Friday where we will be making some stationary sets. This is my go to stationary holder- wow factor but soooo easy.

1) take a sheet of cardstock (8- 1/2 x 11) and score it:
along 8 -1/2 side at:1 -1/4 and 7-1/4
along 11 inch side: 4 -1/2 and 6-1/2
2) you will then cut the bottom score lines at 4 1/2 and 6 1/2 just up to score line from the short side, do this on both sides. ( this makes your flaps.)
3) use some sticky strip and assemble
4) for handles I just used (2) 11 x 1/2 inch pieces attached with brads.

You can decorate as simply or elaborately as you want. I just put a piece of designer paper, but you could do ribbon, more card stock with faux stitching, add a key tag, and more.
