Origami Purse

Finally, an origami purse that is not only aesthetic to look at, but it’s also very practical and functional. I used good-quality wrapping paper to fold this purse. It holds my cards, a few banknotes and coins very well, and is easy to carry in my pocket or in my small crossbody handbag. I am planning to try folding this with washable paper, I think the washable paper will make the purse more durable.

There are a few ways to close the flap of the purse. My favourite is with the elastic band. You can also cut a slit and insert the triangle point of the flap inside the slit to close. The other option is to glue a piece of heart-shaped paper on top. Remember to apply glue only on the side, so you can insert the flap behind the heart. (Watch how I do it on my YouTube video at 6:40).

Hope you like this origami purse and will try to make one. The video tutorial is on my YouTube channel. I’ve also included a step-by-step diagram below. Happy folding!

It’s good to carry some coins. Make sure your purse is never empty. : )
