The Book Clutch

2:47:00 PM

Happy Thursday, everyone! I can't believe half of October is over, then after few more nights, Christmas! Anyway. Bet you didn't know, I am a bibliophile. I loved books ever since I can remember, and I am always requesting books as gifts during birthdays and holidays. And when I saw this clutch, wow! Fashion + DIY project + book all rolled into one? Of course, I shall do it! And I did, with the help of my friend, Chrystelle. We went to a bookshop called Booksale, where they sell the cheapest books, and we judged books by their covers for this! My only regret is we destroyed books for the project. In our defense, they weren't interesting enough. 

I did this one or two years ago, before I had my DSLR, so I can't post my tutorial here. I promise I will soon! But this one is the most similar to what we did. This post by Runway DIY is different but fantastic, I wanted to create again. 




It can hold my phone and money so it works!
Zara shoes
book clutch
Forever 21 dress

The best part is, it looks so legitimate that even my guy friends were amazed by my talent. Hahaha!

Would you destroy a book to make a clutch? I think I didn't destroy, I reinvented. Comments are appreciated, thanks!

Please hype this on Lookbook and Chictopia.

  4. I read a lot but I'm not exactly a bookworm, and I would absolutely destroy a book to make something that cute. Sue me.

  28. Well, if that book wasn't one of your particular favorites and you hadn't touched it in years... by all means. I actually really love the cover of this book, it makes a beautiful cobalt blue clutch, and is super unique. :)
