Pretty Plastic Pocketbook

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

It's a cinch to use sequins and spangles to transform an office-supply staple into a sleek, modern handbag.


  • Poly envelope with Velcro closure (we purchased ours at Target)
  • Hole punch
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon
  • Embellishments, such as trim or appliqu├ęs
  • Double-sided foam tape


  1. Open the poly envelope and punch a hole in each side, about 1 inch from the top.
  2. Cut a length of ribbon long enough for a strap. Thread the ribbon through the holes and tie a knot at each end (inside the bag) to secure it.
  3. Decorate the purse by attaching the embellishments with the tape.
