HACK: How To Poke Perfect Extra Holes In Leather Belts & Handbags

July 29, 2015 by Jeanine Edwards

This past weekend I did a little shopping. My bounty: a gorgeous DKNY leather backpack and three basic leather belts from Gap. Overall, I’m pretty happy with my purchases, but they all have one minor flaw: there aren’t enough holes! The backpack hangs just a little too low on the highest hole on the straps and even when they’re on the smallest hole, the belts are just a bit too big for my natural waist.

Now you’re probably thinking why the heck did you buy these items if they weren’t perfect and to you I say, “I can’t resist a deal.” All of my items were on sale and what can I say? I’m a sucker. So lest these items go to waste, I did some researching and came across arguably one of the most genius inventions ever: the leather hole punch.

Maybe you’re crafty and have known about this bad boy for ages, but I had no idea such a thing existed. I’d resolved myself to hammering screw drivers into things to create extra holes and yeah, as you can imagine, they don’t always turn out so great. Rather than creating jagged holes, this leather hole punch creates precise, even holes that look almost identical to the others. Even better, this particular hole punch comes with six different punch sizes so you can match it exactly to the other holes on your belt. The best, best part, though? The freakin’ thing is less than $10! I feel like I won the lottery.

I just ordered my leather hole punch and it arrives on two days. I’ll report back on how I make out adding new holes to my backpack and belts.
