   I get so peeved at those decks of cards laying around my house with about seven cards missing. So, for revenge, I found some packing tape and my nifty sewing scissors, and now, they are a deck of cards no longer.
I'm hoping to add a poker chip as the fastener. I just need to find one now.

It's actually pretty roomy:

I'm so happy to inspire some of you master craftsters!
Heres a fun little half-tute.
The piece sizes: (the clutch size can be easily changed by playing around with the proportions)

And lots of packing tape.
I first made a big square by taping together all of the cards, then cut out the pieces, but if you happen to be a master planner, you could probably use half as many cards as I did by doing each piece separately.
Tape together (in the following order) along the 8 side: front, bottom, back, flap.  Fold your inside flaps (the funny looking baseball-diamond shaped pieces) in half with card side facing each other for that nice foldable crease. Fold your mega piece (the front, bottom, back and flap) along the separate pieces so it looks like the clutch with no sides. Tape the folded side flaps to the sides of the clutch, Warning: dont tape the bottom of the flaps to the bottom of the clutch, because then it wouldnt open.
Voila! Magic recycled clutch.

That's definetely a neat idea. Wish I would've thought of that along time ago. I've got a bunch of cards I could use to do that. Smiley

I would love to do personal swaps if anyones interested. If your interested please write me!

Love it! Great idea! I might just have to be stealing this idea - I only have 5 or 10 decks of cards hanging around.

I have a gorgeous granddaughter Smiley

That's a great idea.
I think I'll have to make one with all of those trading cards I used to collect as a kid  Cheesy

Awesome!!!  Shocked

I kind of want to borrow your idea... but, instead of using playing cards.. I might use Pokemon cards.    Grin

Way cool!

I want to do the same thing but use a Tarot deck that's missing some cards.

Fantastic!  I just opened a deck of dollar store playing cards today, and it's completely faulty!  It has all the wrong cards!  I think I'm going to have to try this.
