Unclip the existing strap, or just tuck it inside the leather handbag, then knot the ribbon to whatever hardware is attached to the bag. A single knot will look much nicer than a double knot, but you may want to add a couple stitches with a needle and matching thread to make sure it is secure.
Trim the excess ribbon and paint a thin strip of superglue along the edge to stop it from fraying. Do not apply the glue directly to the ribbon as it is easy to accidentally use too much. Either paint it on with a small brush or squeeze a dollop of glue onto some scrap cardboard and gently run the cut edge of the ribbon across the cardboard.
Finally, add some fun little bag charms to one side. You know, just because. Get your one good basic leather handbag and revamp it!
