So I set out on a mission to create my own, as quickly as possible. Today in fact. I told you I had to have one!
If you want a quick and easy book clutch you'll need some basic crafting supplies (pictured above) and an old book you want to re-purpose. Begin by painting the outside of your book pages with glue.
Then measure a border on the inside of your book and cut it out with the X-acto knife.
Then coat the interior of the cut pages with glue and let dry. I painted the outside of the pages of my book gold for a little sparkle.
It might be a good idea to coat the spine and corners of your book with craft glue. I missed that until I saw this next photo. Oops!
By the way, I LOVE this new "Mischievous Mint" polish from MAC
Ta-da!! The almost finished product. I ordered a magnetic clasp, but for it's appearance tonight a button and some elastic will work. Shhh hopefully no one will notice!
I can't believe everything fits! I'm still planning on making a nicer one out of fabric, but this little guy will hold me over until I get my
new replacement sewing machine. Keep an eye out for Book Clutch Part 2!
