Who doesn’t love a stylish handbag? But if, the latest Mulberry is a tad out of your reach, we’ve got the next best thing for fashion-forward crafters with Sarah Jackman Read’s project.
There’s so much to love about this innovative gift bag. It’s the perfect way to package up a treat. The base is made from medium weight coloured card with pretty vintage-style floral papers, but you can use any papers you have in your stash to create your own colour scheme. The brads and eyelets on the strap and handles reflect the features of a real handbag, and you can complete your creation with your choice of embellishments to give it your signature style. The finishing touch is a keyring-style tag so you add a message to the lucky recipient. It’s an ideal make for a friend or relative who always likes to be in vogue, and we’re sure they’ll love it – if you can bear to part with it, that is!
