DIY project: vintage bag

Some days ago i bought this vintage bag at the price of 3 soles , which is 1 us dollar... but it was too black, it needed some kind of bright stuff on it.
so i decided to modify it ... adding some studs (tachas, in spanish) but i didnt know where i could buy them. Yesterday at night the door of my closet was open and suddenly i saw the punk belt my bro once gave me as a present when i liked the avril lavigne thing and i was rebel (16 y.o.) that was in 2002 i think, but i havent wore it since then.
All i needed was the bag, the belt and the knife:

I removed the studs of it ...

and i made holes with the knife to add them to my bag...


it was easy... my nails suffered a lot :( but it was worth it, the result is always good

so now this aint just a simple grandma's bag... it's a grandma's punky bag...
