How is this the rope trick you ask... the answer lies in the fact that these are decorative ropes much like the link chains I used in the blingy bag in my previous post and they are available in a mind boggling range at the local fancy store as they are called in India. This red bag is again a pretty packaging... believe it or not!
Here is how you do this in four simple steps with some fabric glue, scissors and the said fancy rope.
Here is another which I use as an instant kolam or rangoli. These can brighten up any piece of decor in just 15 minutes ... I say that is a snap!
