No ordinary bag ;)

The beautiful and very well known design of Louis Vuitton always remind me of Spring. Seeing that the chances of me owning one of Mr Vuitton's beautiful bags are very, very slim, I decided to make me one - from paper!
I found the paper here and the template here.

 I altered the template slightly and added the "leather look" finishing touches by adding some brown paper, stitched to the bag with gold coloured thread. Finally added a few brads to act as studs.
All this for the just us girls challenge, !
I think this is the perfect gift 'hand'bag for a small gift like jewellery!

Oh WOW, Hannelie! This is wonderful! I, too, love LV, and your project is the sweetest little replica!! That clasp and the heart/chain strung from the handle are the perfect finishing touches!!

Thanks a bunch for playing along with Just Us Girls this week!
