WOYWW bags close up

Did a close up on the bags to show the detail .
Teeny tiny bag
All materials craftwork cards
Card bag
Craftwork cards again
using elegant rectangles, chocolate box card candy and ritzy lime card stock for the flap which could open but doesn't. Hole pricking done by using a dressmakers tracing wheel and going over with pricking tool. Handle is those beads on a string you can get to sew on to clothes. I smashed off the end ones with a hammer to make something to attach them with. Made a template from the elegant rectangle to cut the flap.
