Hello Crafters! How are you today? Today I have a video tutorial showing you how to create this cute little handbag gift box -- it’s a bit like a gift bag and a gift box in one!

The final gift box measures 1.5 x 3 x 4.5 inches so it’s big enough to fit a lot of nice little goodies inside. I finished the outside using the Peony Garden DSP -- it uses less than half a sheet, so if you wanted to create a lot of these as wedding favours or items to sell at a craft fair they’re pretty economical!

I decided they didn’t need too much decoration as the papers are so pretty, but I thought that the little beaded pearls really finished them off and gave them a bit of a luxurious feel.
