What a Stud. DIY, Purse Re-Style with studs.

Need a purse update?
 This Purse re-style only cost me $1.67  in studs
 that I bought from Hobby Lobby, 
and only took me about 30 minutes from start to finish.
I just love fast, easy and inexpensive. 

Things you need.

  1. Old purse
  2. Studs
  3. Scissors
  4. Pliers
  5. X-acto knife

 #1 Cut off the straps.

 #2 measure to the middle of your bag 
#3 I lined up my stud, I then pressed the stud lightly into the leather to make a mark
  this is where you make your slits with the x-acto knife.
#4 Push the tip of the x-acto knife all the way through to the other side.

#5  Push your stud through the leather, then with pliers fold the back tips down.

#6  I used the stitching on my purse to measure where my next stud went.  
Every two stitches I would put a new stud.
 But this is totally up to you and how you want to space them..
Continue with the studs until you get the desired look you want.

Hello new Clutch.
Look how studly.
New life brought back into an old purse.
He is so happy he's Smiling.

Have a awesome Tuesday.
