How to Make a Designer Handbag with $1 Worth of Supplies

Grab a paper bag, a marker, and about a foot and a half of chain, and you can recreate this look in ten minutes or less. I bet it would look good with a smaller lunch-size brown bag too. *The project is from Design Shimmer. And I’d take this diy bag over a real Chanel bag any day. But then again, I am not much of a designer gal myself.

What do you think? Would you rock one of these “designer” bags?

that’s kinda cute! is there a way of weather-proofing it? i suppose you could just make up a brand new one in a pinch!

Michele

Good question. Scotch-Guard might work for weather proofing?

So clever and hilarious! thanks for sharing!

You could always cover the paper bag in clear contact paper to weather proof it 😉 I think this is super fun. Must try someday when I’m bored…

Oh, good idea Lindsay. I bet contact paper would work well.
