I've had this transparent clutch bag from Molten Store for a while now, and recently I've been thinking of ways to decorate it in a way that's not so see-through. Because sometimes I'd just prefer all my bits and bobs to not be on show. At first I toyed around with the idea of making different patterned pouches to fit inside it but laziness got the better of me. When I remembered that I had a glittery piece of card piled away somewhere I had my light bulb moment. What could be an easier DIY than effectively cutting a piece of cardboard?
What you need:
- Transparent clutch (mine's old stock from Molten Store but you can always try eBay for similar clutches)
- Decorative card
Measure and record the dimensions of the inside compartment of the clutch/bag you're working with.
Measure and mark up the card accordingly. Then cut the card into the desired shape.
Press the card into the inner compartment. If you've measured correctly, the card should be a snug fit. If the card is too large, trim the edges with scissors or a craft knife until you achieve the desired fit. If the card is too small, try using some double sided tape to secure it to the inside of the clutch.
You could repeat the process for the other side of the clutch or leave it transparent, like I did. (Also, check out my Gemma Correll kitty case from Iconomesis. All of the cats!)
Et voila! A quick and easy but oh so effective way to dress up a clear clutch.
