How to make your own Cath Kidston camera strap

I know how lots of us girls (especially blogger girls) treasure our digital SLRs. 
They are our pride and joy, our creative outlet, our little baby, our prized possession and our tool to document all the precious moments of life. 
I saved for forever for my newest little beauty, the Canon EOS M! I've only had it since February and I have fallen in love with it. It goes with me wherever I go...I've been practising my photography everyday....whether it's taking photos of food, my clothes or just random stuff on my bed! 

I had a look around the Internet and was amazed to see how much 'girlie' camera straps cost! £40 was the normal going rate in some places. While looking at most, I couldn't justify spending that much on a camera strap and I wasn't really impressed by the print or design. Then I had a moment of inspiration at work the other day. I purchased one of Cath Kidston's Lanyards (only £3), choosing the same matching print as my current business card holder,
the little rose print.

So here you go!
You're 10 minute camera strap tutorial easy peasy!......
