I'm not even going to tell you guys how much I love books, you probably get it by now. So when I saw this Nerdy Chic Book Clutch DIY from Caught on a Whim, I knew it was only a matter of time before I was toting around my own and showing it off to everyone I know.
But I'm going to be completely honest. That matter of time ended up being a matter of months (yes, many, many months.) This clutch is definitely one of the coolest projects we've ever done. I mean, hollowing out a book to turn it into a purse?! That's awesome! But it was also one of the most complicated, detailed, and in depth projects we've done too.
It literally took us months to finally get this clutch finished, mostly because we had now idea how we were going to explain and document each and every little detail we did in order to make this. (Trust me, it was harder than it looks). We wrote out an entire tutorial, but it turned into something straight out of a rocket science textbook so we decided to scrap it. Ahh, the beauty of blogging.
Regardless, we LOVE this project and we really, really wanted to share it anyway, so we're just going to let the photos do the talking. Is that okay?
Alrighty, here it goes!
This project had many ups and downs, but in the end we feel like we accomplished something pretty awesome! Our process was heavily adapted from the Caught on a Whim tutorial, so if you think you'd like to give this book clutch a try, head on over to her blog for details! And of course, we'd be happy to share any insight we have with you. If you have questions, be sure to leave them in the comments!
Have a great (short) week!
