One-Step DIY | Clear Plastic Clutch

June 29, 2012

Last year, I fell in love with this Christopher Kane clutch in all it’s squishy glory. This year, a whole bunch of lovely, clear clutches popped up everywhere. Everywhere but in Honduras, of course.

When I found this makeup bag at a department store I immediately knew what it would become. There’s only one simple step to this DIY: cut off the straps!

You might not be able to find the exact cosmetic bag, but I hope it motivates you to keep your eyes open at all times for potential DIY projects. They’re everywhere!

The verdict: I like how sleek the clutch is, but there’s an understandable reason why probably won’t become a trend in my country: safety issues! You might as well tape a “mug me” sign to your forehead. If you want to try it out, I suggest placing your phone and wallet into a pouch so they won’t be exposed to the world. Gotta be street smart these days!
