Looking for the perfect Mother’s Day surprise for Mom? Your one-of-a-kind paper purse is sure to make her smile, especially when she finds a special message inside!
Think about your mom. What are her favorite colors? What kinds of patterns does she like to wear? Look around the house for designs and decorations she loves.
Create a design with your mother in mind. Design Crayola Construction Paper with Crayola Pip-Squeaks Markers and Colored Pencils. Cover the paper with colorful designs.
Fold paper in half lengthwise, bringing long sides together. Be sure your design shows on the outside. Place the paper on the table with the fold to the right.
Fold the bottom third of the paper up and crease.
Starting at the bottom right corner of the folded paper, use Crayola Scissors to cut a diagonal line from the corner up and to the left, ending at the top edge, 1-2 inches (3-5cm) from the side fold.
Unfold the paper. Place it designed side down on the table. Fold the bottom flap up where it has a horizontal crease. Fold the top over that flap to make the front of the purse.
Cut a ribbon, yarn, or string handle for the purse. Attach the ends of the ribbon inside the purse using Crayola Glue.
Run a line of glue along each side of the bottom flap to create a pocket.
Create a button for the front of your purse using Crayola Model Magic modeling compound. Use your imagination to make a unique button or try one of these tips: • Flatten a small ball of Model Magic. Roll a smaller ball in a second color and flatten it on
Attach the button to the front flap of the purse with glue.
Use Pipsqueaks Markers and Colored Pencils to write messages or make little coupons for your mother. Tuck messages into the purse.
Add sparkle to your purse with Crayola Glitter Glue. Outline designs, add sparkling dots of color, and create a Glitter Glue gem on the button. Let dry.
