Little paper Hermès purse

For those of us who don't want to spend our life's savings on a real Hermès bag, there's a customizable, downloadable paper model on their site. (Find the picture there that looks like the one above and click it.) I guess this little bag could sit on your desk and hold a jellybean or something. Thanks, Tsh.

P.S. If you poke around the Hermès wonderland some more, you can find lots of nifty animations, games, and videos.

I have been lurking at your site for months now. I just love it. The Hermes purses just sent me over the edge and I had to comment. I wish you were my neighbor, because I think you are so creative. Then, maybe your creativity could spill over to my house. Love the blog......Thank you for brightening my days with fun. Jennifer :)

How about enlarging it and using it as a pattern to make your own fabric version?

Love it!

You're a terrible woman, you are! I've just spent half an hour playing and watching those lovely things unfolding in front of my eyes. It's just wonderful! Thanks. :-)

I saw this when I was on the Hermes website the other day and I think it's an adorable idea.

Isn't this the cutest little bag project? I can envision all sorts of uses for such a fun project.

This has so many possibilities. Made of plain paper, yes, it would only hold a jellybean. But being a paper person and not a sewing person, I want to try this out with some stiff cardstock and customized drawings/paintings on the cover. Probably won't be something I can take to town everyday (and it probably won't hold my makeup bag), but it would be quite the convo piece at my university.

I made mine with coloured scrapbook paper. I enlarged it about 10%. It took about a half an hour to make it.
