Transparent wooden clutch DIY

Hello everybody!!!

Transparent clutches are starting to become more and more famous.So why not make one of your own?

To make this transparent clutch you will need:
-2 simple wooden picture frames or you can make your own frames and glue the glasses as I did.
-2 metal clasps
-a metal lock clasp
-a belt
-a hammer
-a drill
Good luck!!

If you don’t want your all of your things to be visible there is a tutorial in the end of the video that shows you how to make a smaller embroidery wallet.


nbd just delivering some Hogwarts letters…

I started this project a long time ago. I believe that there is a post with the original envelope bag on this blog somewhere. This is a recreation of that. I was hoping to make it sturdier and more uniform. I didn’t quite succeed. The bag is still sort of misshapen and the clasp is out of place. 

All I really need to do is just make a mock up and fool around with it until I get it right. I keep spending a lot of time embroidering all the writing and then assembling it and realizing that if I take it apart it will just be ruined. 

But for now this little cutie will do. I am debating on adding straps. I like the idea that it is a clutch… it is more like an envelope that way.
