This purse if a beauty. The price…well…it’s not so pretty.

The great thing about a $3300 handbag is that any DIY version will be less expensive and this particular purse rings in at about $50 once you have the basic supplies on hand. If you followed my tutorial on making leather flowers with the Cricut Cuttlebug, then you already know how to create a pile of pretty blooms. With those you can create a ton of different projects, including this amazing, designer inspired DIY leather flower crossbody purse.
