Really cheap and easy clutch bag.
A very cheap, elegant looking clutch bag. I bought all of the materials for this bag for under £5, but I think that the finished bag looks much more expensive.

  • How to make a recycled clutch. Paper Wallet to Bag - Step 1
    Step 1

    I forgot to take a picture of the type of wallet I used, but it was a black A5 sized one on these. (I was originally going to use an A4 one, but it's very difficult to find patterned paper big enough to cover it, so I'd recommend sticking to A5 at largest).

    Then trace the size of paper you'll need to cover the wallet, and cut the pieces out using a craft knife.

    Use double sided sticky tape to stick the paper down to the wallet making sure everything's correctly lined up. (The felt paper I used for the back was self-adhesive, so obviously that didn't need the sticky tape.)

    I then used parcel tape to stick the ends of the strap in, but if you can find something stronger then I'd definitely recommend it.
