Tuck jewelry or candies into one of our colorful DIY leather pouches for a two-in-one treat your loved one can keep and tie to a tote strap (perfect for corralling earbuds or lip balm).
For more ideas, browse our collection of Handmade Tote Bags, Clutches, and Handbags.
Using a circle cutter, cut out a four-to-seven-inch round piece of leather (size it for the item you want to enclose), then add holes an inch apart around the edge with a screw punch.
Thread cord through all the holes, then feed the ends through one more hole each, to create the loose tie needed to cinch the pouch closed.
Slip a surprise inside, and pull the ends tight.
