Purse Boxes – Paper Purse Cut Files

It’s time to go out on the town! But which handbag goes best with my outfit? My outfit being a stylish 50’s swing dress and high heels, of course (definitely not a t-shirt from college and a pair of black leggings currently covered in cat fur). Well, luckily, we have options! Gather up some cardstock, and make some pretty purse boxes with me today.

Not only are these just an all-around fun papercraft, but they are really handy! They can be filled with all kinds of goodies, and they even include a little pocket inside where a gift card can be placed!

As cute and as detailed as these purses look, they really aren’t too difficult to assemble! Here’s how to do it:

Note: Each box is a little different, but this is a general idea.

  1. Use a cutting machine or X-Acto knife to cut out all of the pieces of your purse box. Then, layer together any decorative elements that go on the front and back of the purse.
  2. Next, attach the gift card pocket to the inside of one of the purse walls (be sure to only glue around the sides and bottom, leaving the top open). Then, attach the handle(s) to the inside, top.
  3. Fold the side pieces along the score lines, and attach the tabs to the inside of the front/back walls of the purse.
  4. Assemble and attach the purse charm. Attach a little piece of velcro to the purse flap. Add any other embellishments you desire!

Like most designs, I had planned on keeping these purses relatively simple in nature so as to “let the paper patterns do the talking.” But I just couldn’t help myself. That’s why I ended up with a candy patterned purse and a decorative cat purse. Once I got the idea for those patterns, I just scrapped the simple layout I was working on, and shifted gears. I did manage to keep things a little bit more simple on the green purse, though, so that I could use that fun butterfly paper!

I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other fun freebies available on my blog!

Enjoy putting these elegant purse boxes together. And don’t forget to share your fun-filled creations with me on Instagram!
