              Things you will need: a piece of paper, white cardboard, foam paper, beads and cording, sticker gems (we like the ones from Super Smalls), white tape and colored tape.

              Step 1: Fold your piece of paper in half and draw one side of a heart then cut. Ours unfolded is about 5 x 5.5 in.

              Step 2: Draw two hearts on the white cardboard using your paper heart. Cut two rectangles (4.5 x 1.75 in) and score along the lines, then fold.

              Step 3: Assemble the hearts with the sides using the white tape.

              Step 4: Now cover the sides with the colored tape of your choice.

              Step 5: On the foam paper in the colors of your choice, cut two hearts for the front and back of the purse.

              Step 6: Make your handle using the cording and beads, it can be a short or long handle, it can be single cord or double, have a message on it... anything you like, be creative!

              Step 7: Make a small hole on each side of the purse using a big needle or a nail.
