I'm not much of an arts and crafts girl, myself. But sometimes I get a wild hair, a bit of inspiration. Today was one of those times.
I started off by destroying several carefully written articles in Vanity Fair...
Hoped for finished product:
I've seen these little clutch thingies before, made out of candy wrappers or colorful paper, but I like the idea of print, being the nerd that I am. Today I saw one at a consignment shop that was really snazzy. It wasn't woven the way you see the ones above are, but I couldn't find a pattern (or even a picture) of a clutch similiar to what I saw in the shop--just these guys. And so, I thought, what the hell, I'll give it a try! If mine turns out as nice as the last photo you see above, I'll be very proud of myself.
