A Velvet and Ric Rac Straw Tote DIY / Oh Joy!

Here's how...
1. Lay out the order and colors of ribbon and ric rac you like. We alternated thin and thick velvet ribbon and left space for the gold ric rac between.
2. Attach with hot glue all the way around the body of the tote.
3. Finish by gluing the ric rac all the way around each of the handles.
