Alexander Mcqueen inspired Clutch DIY



This really is the most unbelievably easy project, and the result is stunning!
The three finger ring we used was bought off Ebay for $2.50 including postage, and the sunglasses case was bought from the dollar store for $3.50, so cheap! If you can't find the right coloured case, you could paint it before you attach the ring. Cover it in polka dots or a chevron pattern, or your name in beautiful calligraphy, the options are limitless.
This clutch is stunning too, inspired by Alexander Mcqueen's infamous clutches, it is the perfect accessory for a classy night out. It would also make an affordable and customizable gift.


Sunglasses case
Thin ribbon
Three finger ring


Hot glue gun
Black vivid/sharpie


Cut your ribbon into three short strips and glue each one into a wee loop.

Flatten the loop and glue one end onto the sunglasses case, right next to the opening. Push the other end of the loop through the ring and glue it onto the other side of the case. 

Repeat for the remaining two loops so there is a piece of ribbon threaded through each finger hole of the ring.

Optional extra:

If some of the glue is visible and not looking too pretty, colour it in!
Just grab a sharpie and blacken out the white bits.

And you're all done, just like that!

And for a very small price you have a one of a kind, edgy clutch that'll make all of the other girls jealous.

Happy carrying,
