Origami Clutch Bag / Purse Tutorial

Make an origami clutch bag or purse. Great as a miniature bag for dolls, or a large one to use. Made from 1 sheet of square paper.

This is a pretty origami purse, you could use it to keep papers in, or money, jewellery perhaps.  It’s based on the internal boxes from the origami roll-up box.

If you actually want to use this as a clutch or handbag, I’d suggest making it with either plastic/vinyl, stiff fabric or very durable paper. You’d also need to get a magnetic popper or velcro for the front flap.

Level: ★★★☆☆

You will need:

▸ 1 sheet of square paper
▸ Ruler, pencil, calculator
Recommended minimum size: 21 x 21 cm – this is the paper I used in the video.

Use the biggest paper you have. Thicker paper is ok, but I’d suggest practicing on paper you don’t care about first.

Final Size: 8.8 x 4 x 4 cm

A Photo Tutorial is available on the Origami Photo Tutorials page.

Hi Chrissy,
I was wondering where you got the paper with the ice creams and other sweets that’s in the first picture?
