Not Your Average Paper Bag

They’re not quite as good as the real things, but man, are they cute. Elizabeth Spiridakis, writer, blogger and (evidently) crafter extraordinaire makes a hobby out of remaking iconic designer bags in construction paper. “I have two self-imposed rules,” she says. “One: they are only made out of things I can get at the drugstore: construction paper, glue stick and tape. And two, I like them to be ‘functional.’ I mean, they are paper and you can’t actually use them but I want the closures to be real and usable, and they should look good from any angle.” So good, in fact, that we’re finding it hard to resist slinging them over our shoulders.
