Of all the quandaries, this is the biggest: Where or where shall I put my flair. Am I right? This is the question that keeps you up at night.
Well, girlfriend, prepare for sweet dreams tonight because I’ve got the solution to your dilemma. Now, most days you might rock that flair on a denim jacket – but you can’t wear a denim jacket everyday. I mean…I guess you could, but at some point people are going to start talking about you and your daily-denim-jacket-habit. Let’s trade that jacket for a cute tote. It’s completely acceptable to carry the same tote everyday and this tote is just waiting for some flair.
For this project, I took a super affordable faux leather tote bag and added perforation to the front. This way, you have a place for your pins to live and you can easily change out the look. Here’s how I put it together:
- a reversible faux leather tote bag
- graph paper
- a leather punch set
- a wood mallet or a hammer
- a piece of scrap wood
Tape the graph paper onto the bag and draw dots on the graph paper where you want your holes to go
Place a piece of scrap wood inside the tote. This will give you a firm surface to punch into when you start hammering away.
One by one, place the 1/8″ leather punch onto each dot and hammer until you punch through the bag. Work your way all the way down the grid.
Remove the graph paper to reveal the perforated pattern on the front of the bag

DIY The perforated leather bag you make is very beautiful and skillful. I appreciate your talent.
Hi, Damask. You are my first everything. I had never followed a blog or YouTube series until I fell for your crafts on Making It. I just love your look and the fact that you give such clear, simple directions, and use such readily available materials, that I feel like I can do it. But I hadn’t really tried until I saw this tote. I love it. I immediately ordered the tote from your Target link- thanks for making it simple- I used my Crop-a-file to make the holes, followed your directions for the leather tassels, and there you have it. I used the first pins I lay my hands on- flair is a new term to me- but that’s the great thing about this; I can change it as I wish, and I know the significance of everything to me. I’ve never written a comment like this, so another first. You just inspire all the way around. Keep it up. The only thing better than your imagination is your generous willingness to share it. Thea p.s. I wish I knew how to send you a picture of my bag, but all my friends love it.
