I saw this cardboard books at my local craft shop and
this idea popped up in my head as I stood there.
I have a thing for old pulp book covers and since I have
a collection at home I decided to scan and laminate my
favorites. Turned out that I had a lot of favorites so I
thought it would be cool if I have one on each side for
more variation of the clutch.
I sprayed the cardboard book/box, made a hole for the
elastic band and the paper fastener (who in this case were
sprayed black first) then I glued some felt on the inside
and the laminated covers on each side.
Easy and in my opinion a very cool clutch purse.
(Yes, I got tons of compliments on the 50's scene when I
went to see a friend gigging.) The result:Before:
