I used colored paper for this craft, but coloring your own paper with this technique would be awesome! These could be made with a recycled cereal box or other thick paper you have in the recycling bin.

Supplies needed to make paper mini purses holding Hershey's Nuggets.

Scoring Paper:

Begin by scoring the paper at the 1.5 inch, 2.5 inch and the 4 inch marks. Mark the paper with the MONO Graph Mechanical Pencil on each side. Line the ruler up across the paper from mark to mark and score the line.

If you don’t have a scoring tool, use the MONO Graph Mechanical Pencil without the graphite pushed out.

Cut paper to 5 x 1 3/8 inch and score paper at the 1.5, 2.5 and 4 inch lines.

Mark the Holes:

Secondly, use the MONO Graph Mechanical Pencil to mark the places to punch holes for the purse handles.

Then punch the holes with the small hole punch. If you don’t have a small hole punch, use a push pin to poke the holes in the paper.

Tie the Mini Purse Handle:

Thread the black twine through the holes and tie a square knot inside the fold. Then trim the excess twine. This is a paper twine that is stiff enough to keep its shape.

Tie the paper yarn in a square knot.

Next, pull the twine through the top of the purse with the knot hidden underneath.

Make purse loops on the paper with paper yarn.

Hole Punch for the Brad:

Now fold up the paper on the score lines and fold over the purse flap. Then, mark with a pencil on the center where the brad will be secured. Punch it with the small hole punch.

Tape in the Chocolate:

Now use the Tombow MONO Adhesive Dots and apply the adhesive to the base of the purse.

Secure with the Brad:

Now, fold over the purse flap to line up the punched hole and insert the metallic brad. Then pull the prongs apart to secure the flap in place. If you don’t have any brads, use the MONO Adhesive Dots roller to secure it and draw a little button on the front with a MONO Drawing Pen.
