Stunning Designer Handbag Gift Bag

Hi friends, I recently shared this wonderful fold flat gift bag inspired by a very expensive designer handbag!

I love making gift bags especially ones that look like handbags, and if they fold flat, even better as I can make loads and keep them stored away easily.

The bag is very simple to make, it’s all the detail that takes time and gives it that designer look.

I adore the padlock and the hidden key!

I’ve snipped the bottom of the padlock so that it can really lock the gift bag together.
