I’m not one of those girls who changes her purse with every outfit – Half the time I’m lucky to get out the door at all! But, I do love changing things up with a statement clutch bag now and then, particularly in animal print or a fun, bright floral. This lined floral clutch bag is not only perfect for such an occasion, but it also cost about $5 to make, and is a ridiculously easy project, without any sewing!

    Did I miss a step? How does it stay closed? Very cute and creative idea.

      You did not! The flap comes down far enough that I didn’t see the need to add closure, but you could certainly add one!
