Here is what I came up with:
I think it is cute, I may have to make a bunch more!
Here is how I did it! I took the same sample I grabbed from the zero waste program that I explained here and cut a strip.
Then I added a piece of hot glue to one side.
And made a ring.
Pinched it with the seam side in the middle.
Pinched it bow style.
Then wrapped it with string, I did a loop around and then wrapped it a bunch of times.
Then added hot glue to hold it there and trimmed the extra.
For the part around the center, I cut a small strip about a half inch wide and a few inches long.
First I glue it on the front.
Then from the back glue it down one side at a time.
Then add a clip and done!
If only there was yellow leather in that pack.
