Hello! Crafty friends,
For today's tutorial post I have made few purse pillow gift boxes..which you can make in any theme as per your requirement..you can use it for birthday's,festival gift boxes or any other purpose...since it's a picture heavy post.. Iam going straight to that...

Step by step instructions with pictorial:

Step-1: take 9"*11" pattern paper.
 Step-2: score on 11" side at 11/2",51/2",91/2".
 Step-3:score on 9" side from 1" down till scoring lines..means it should touch the 11/2" score line..on both sides or from all 4 sides..for better understanding see picture I specifically did in white paper so you can see....and mark or just score mark in the middle scoring lines.we don't have to score just little marking will do.

 Step-4: now fold the pattern paper in half and cut the two top corners of 1"*11/2" ..see picture
 Step-5: now for pillow flaps..take any round plate and draw arch touching two corner points..do this on opposite side also
 See in this picture clearly
 Step-6:now same way using round plate do inside arch..it will make an eye shape...do it other side also.
 See here in this picture for better idea.
 Step-7: now cut that arch shape from outside edge..you will get a purse kind of design.see picture
 Step-8: now score all inside arch shape lines with pointed score tool and give shape..see picture

 Step-9: now taking a circle punch cut a small half circle from both  opposite side....this small semicircle will help to pull out out flap easily when we close the pillow box flaps. We have to do it on one sides only.
 Step-10: now with glue stick top two straight 11/2"*7" part.
 Step-11: once glue is dried..then using corner rounder or stub..give corner shapes. It will give nice look to our purse pillow boxes.
 Step-11: now to make handle in my  purse pillow gift box..I have used sizzix oval die and diecuting machine..I have cut out that oval shape..you can try other shapes also..now fold two side flaps inside.
Total size of my purse pillow box is 7"*51/2". Finally I have decorated using MS punch boarder, design papers sentiment sheet ,pearls and ribbon bow.

Hope you have liked my work..and thank you for stopping by
Love and hugs
