Designer Kate: Game of Life Clutch


I was inspired by Miley Cyrus’s money dress from this weekend. Unfortunately, I didn’t feel comfortable hot gluing real money to make a clutch, so I used the Game of Life money that somehow ended up in my sewing kit. Don’t ask me how because I literally have no clue.

eat your heart out, miley cyrus!

It’s super easy to make.

1). Take an old VCR case and rip off the plastic part where they put the cover.

3). To seal in the paper, use Mod Podge, acrylic, or some sort of lacquer.

This made me realize how awesome VCRs are for clutches.

They fit a lot of stuff…
