Candy Purse Tutorial


This is one of my favorite pics this week, so I pinned it on Pinterest.  It was part of the Festival of Tables I shared with you in THIS post.  Be sure to check out all of the creative table ideas!
I promised to show you how to make the little purse favor that the table hostess gave to her guests, so let’s do that now …

Select papers

Bottom view
Decide what size purse you want and cut paper into strips.

Back view

Put double-sided tape (or any kind of two-sided foam/wax, etc.)
on your favorite candy …
Oooooh, so THAT’S what’s inside!

… and tuck candy inside the paper.

Side view

Add a ribbon handle and embellish as desired.


Super easy, but oh so cute!
Perfect little favors for any “girly” event.
Big girls AND little girls will love them, don’t you think?

  1. Love that little purse. However, I will leave the making to others. I am not good at that sort of thing.

  2. Wow how FUN is that! So Pretty and the possibilities are ENDLESS!!! This would be a cute project for little girls to make their Mom’s Mothers Day Purses, etc!
    LOVE IT!
    Thank you for sharing,
    Have a fun weekend,

  3. Susan- I have been so busy I missed these before- They are just the sweetest little purses ever-what great favors and I can see them being used as place cards with a little name tag hanging off them. I am saving this idea! xo Diana
