Crafternoon: Paper Prada

I was so jazzed on how my lil paper PS1 came out last week that I have decided to step it up a notch and render my favorite bags of the SS11 season in my current medium of choice: construction paper ! The colors of the season are perfect for it.

First love love love of the Spring 2011 accessories: The striped canvas Prada weekender.


Materials: drugstore construction paper, scissors, glue stick, Scotch tape, black felt tip pen. I worked off of style.com pics.


Amount of time spent: 2 episodes of Law & Order: SVU on Hulu (approx 90 mins. Not a bad Sunday night activity!)

The finished product! PS: the clasp opens (one of my self-imposed rules of the project) !


I'm really pretty happy with it, I think this is my new favorite pastime.
Mom and Dad, don't worry about me anymore, I found my calling: paper accessory maker, it's gonna be my big moneymaker!

What bag should I do next?!?!!? I have a huge folder of candidates on my desktop...

I love it! Now you just need to make them sturdier so they are actually functional. I'd buy one.

That is too cute! It's ridiculously accurate and if the clasp works too then you must wear it around in public! Not such a good idea in the rain though right now. xD

Amandine said...

That is amazing.

YOU ARE AWESOME. But a little mental too. The bag is rad. More of this, or projects like this, muchas gracias.

there's quite a bit of attention to detail I see, super sharp edges, very tidy. So good! are these sturdy enough to sit up on their own or hold anything? They'd be an interesting way to organize paper supplies or beauty goods. if someone needed a bandaid, you could be like "oh, yeah, it's in the prada in the cupboard"

Colleen said...

I really wish this bag was called something else though.

Ah bloody immense! Back the paper onto canvas and add some sticky back plastic and you could feasibly use it in real life!

Amy said...

It looks amazing! Whoa. I'd like some of these to have as art in my bedroom.

You should do a Valentino next! This looks great!

I'm sure your parents would be thrilled to have you become a paper accessory maker :P I'm so tempted to tell my parents I'm dropping out of school to become a nail technician.

Dude, you need to buy yourself some sort of display box for these, throw that shit in there, make a bunch more and prepare to be a MILLIONAIRE! I'll help you set up your Etsy shop ;)

LVE+JOY said...

I'm going to try and make on of my own, for ornamental and boredom-aleviating purposes.
