DIY Box Clutch Purse

DIY Box Purse

It’s always nice to have a little clutch to go with a special dress, but buying them can get expensive and I can never find the style I want.  You know how it is right?  You’re heading out to a wedding or party and you want the perfect shoes or bag to go with your dress, but you can never find what you want, when you want it.  So here’s the solution, make a clutch purse yourself.

This box clutch purse from LifeAnnStyle is a fun way to make your own clutch in whatever color you choose.  I think that this is a fun project for girls of all ages and it would even make a really cute gift to make for mum. A girl can never have enough purses after all!

How to Make a Box Clutch Purse

What I like about this DIY idea is that you can recycle and upcycle things that you already have on hand.  Use a little gift box for the frame of the purse and use some old pieces of cosmetic jewelry that you have around the house.

Make sure you check the kids toys for things to upcycle too.  I know that my daughter has broken tiaras and play jewelry that we could use to make a cute purse.  And if you don’t want to use this as a clutch, you could skip the handle and just use it as a treasure box to keep on your bureau.

How to Crochet a Flower

How to Crochet Flower

A crocheted flower is the perfect accent piece for a headband, bag, or gift wrapping.  This tutorial shows you how to crochet a flower with ease.  The video ties-in to the How to Crochet a Headband article, but I wanted to list this tutorial separately since these crocheted flowers are perfect for more than just a headband.

What I like about these videos is that she takes you from start to finish.  This means that she had to break-out the tutorial over 3 videos, but each one is only 5-10 minutes which is a great length and she goes at a pace that I think is easy to follow.

Crochet Daffodils
Bring Spring into your home with crochet daffodils.  This tutorial takes you step by step through how to make these beautiful flowers.  And of course since these flowers are crocheted, you can use whatever color you choose.  Wish I had that magic in my garden as well, lol.

 

This video is just the right speed.  You can see all of the steps and crochet along with her without getting lost.  It’s not too slow, but not too fast either.  Of course it is Crochet Geek, so would you expect anything less?


I hope you enjoy this tutorial and have fun making your own indoor garden.
