Good thing, my father was in town. So, with some thought and a bit of father magic, (man power) my new pink jewelry box now has a beautiful new handle :)
I didn't take good pictures of the torn handle, but the pink pleather on the left side ripped.
So first things first, cut off the remaining handle.
Prying open the loop of the handle was something that I couldn't do. It really wasn't that complicated, but really required some strength. I didn't have the right tools and I was also trying to go about it the wrong way. Long story short, my dad figured out how to open them with some wire cutters and a rusted wrench. I think I need to do some tool shopping.
Voila, new handle :) YAY!
From as far back as I can remember, whether it be a necklace that was broken to a lamp switch that I managed to break, my father always found a way to fix them :) He's always been my hero, love you baba!
