Drawstring Bag Box with Facebook Live Video Tutorial

Today’s project is from my Weekly Wednesday Facebook Live last night!

I’m calling it a drawstring bag box! Doesn’t it remind you of the drawstring purses/jewelry bags from back in the day? Here it is with gold embellishments:

And here’s the pair together:

Which is your favorite? I think mine is the silver version (smile). Fellow French demonstrator, Sophie Prestrelle, has a wonderful tutorial for this project HERE. I tweaked the measurements slightly to make it my own. What a fun box!

Here’s my edited Facebook Live video tutorial:

  1. Julie this is a great little project and I say little based purely on its size once completed. I will be CASE’ing it rest assured. As to which I like best, hmmmm that’s a toughie, but if pressed, please Julie stop twisting my arm, I prefer the silver embellishments.

  2. I really love this box and would very much like to make them. I however need more info in order to do that. I went to the site but the video is in french so I am lost. Can you give us a bit more help with this project. Love your creativity!
