A Stunning Book Style Designer Gift Bag

Hi everyone, today I’m sharing #9 of my Hand Bag/Gift Bag series.

This Book Style bag is inspired by a 1990’s Jean Paul Gaultier leather bag.

I think this is my favourite style from this series so far!

This is for a 40th Birthday, so I embossed the sentiment to look like the title of the book and then the number 40 to look like the book volume.

This is a great size and nice and sturdy too!
