Hey GirlMoguls, our friend Ruby, over at www.makeitruby.com just sent us this totally cool new diy craft project – a perfect redo for any old handbag lying around.  You can even head over to a second hand store and pick up a cool bag on the cheap, if you don’t have something at home lying around to re-purpose – oh and that’s another reason why we love this project – giving something old a totally new life…so green (and so ready for Earth Day).

Button Up Retro Bag
Ruby’s Tool Kit: fabric glue, marker, buttons
1. Renew a bag from a second hand store or from your own closet and
make it scream RETRO 🙂
2. Apply different color buttons to the bag with a fabric glue.
3. Glue a broach to the front of the bag to add some extra bling.
