Make your own Hermes Kelly Bag!

The iconic “Kelly ” bag by Hermes has stood the test of time and remains a coveted item in the most elegant of wardrobes. Grace Kelly first carried the Sac a Depeches (Messages Bag) early in her first pregnancy and used it to conceal her baby bump from the prying eyes of the paparazzi. The classic, structured handbag soon become strongly associated with the Princess and came to be known unofficially, then officially, as the Kelly Bag. Each and every Kelly bag produced is created by hand from the highest quality leather or exotic skin and can take 18 to 24 hours for one single artisan to perfect the item . The bag has remained in great demand for over 50 years now, at times generating long waiting times for availability. The price tag?  Formidable for most consumers, ranging anywhere between $10,000 and $60,000.

For fun we thought we’d share a stylish paper project with you … fun for a summer cottage diversion, a Girls’ gathering activity or as party favours or place cards at a shower table setting. Let your creativity and imagination play freely!

Hermes had this available on their website but have now taken it down. It is still available courtesy of Paper Monkey at the following link – cut, paste and enjoy!
