I recently learned about these very pretty and chic magazine cover clutches.
I saw it when I was searching for something else on Google. But then, that's how I find most of my inspiration, while searching for something else. I guess you could say I'm easily distracted. Anyway, I saw this ad for a kit you can buy for $29 to make your own clutch. Somehow I just can't justify paying that much for a kit when I already have all the materials to make the clutch except for, well, the clutch itself. I admit I really love that clutch that comes with the kit, but still.
So, I Googled it and came up with this really easy tutorial. There are a couple of ways to do it, but I chose this method because it was so easy. All you need is the magazine cover of your choice, some scissors or a paper cutter (the kind you can get in the scrapbook section of your craft store), a foam brush, some gloss Modge Podge and you're all set. Just follow the above tutorial and you'll have your elegant and chic Magazine Cover Clutch in no time.
I decided that I could do this myself without buying the kit, so I went to the thrift store and found a little purse that was on sale for .99 cents. How cool is that? It's not a clutch, but after looking at it, I decided that I could make it work. Also, the chain shoulder strap was very tarnished, so I had to figure out how to get that off. I found another tutorial on Youtube for how to do that too.
Here's my version of the Magazine Cover Clutch/Purse and I love it!
