Hermès Kelly Bag | Origami Paper Craft | FREE DOWNLOAD . . .


The Kelly bag is so named after the actress Grace Kelly, when in 1956, the then Princess of Monaco used one of her two favorite Hermès bags to shield her pregnancy from the paparazzi.


A closer look at today's version with 2 handles in green.


Two paper purses ~ handpainted.


Plain white paper Kelly bag.

Make this Hermès Kelly Bag from two sheets of card stock. Use it as a gift bag for a small present for a special friend. Personalize it any way you want. Paint it, print it on colored stock, or add your own custom elements. Let your creativity go wild. 

This craft project is not for the faint of heart. It looks pretty intricate and I have not actually tried to make this bag. Maybe you should use plain old inkjet paper for your first one because that would be much easier to fold. 


Anyway, here it is. DOWNLOAD HERE! 
Note: This is no longer available on the Hermès site, but luckily I found someone who saved it to their site. We should all thank PaperMonkey.

The Hermès Website is very cool. You could spend hours checking everything out. Enjoy! 

These origami Kelly bags would be fabulous place cards for your holiday table or fancy dinner party with a small gift inside for each female guest.

Thanks for stopping by the cottage today. This post is a classic reBlog brought back by popular demand. Have fun crafting your Kelly bag. ♥Rosemary

Pretty! If I constructed one from cardstock and carried it out to dinner, do you think anyone would be the wiser?

Aren't these the coolest little things! Found them by accident a while back, did you check out the prints on the scarves? Some of them are simply gorgeous.

Thanks so much for this, and many thanks to papermonkey too. I'm going to make this for a handbag mad friend who is feeling a little down at the moment - I know it will cheer her up!
