I made this DIY book clutch following this tutorial, but with a few changes: I added two ribbons so that I could close it with a bow rather than a clasp, and I cut out the last page of the book before gluing it all together so that I could use it to "line" the hole in the middle. It was super easy to make and took maybe 2 hours all in all. The book is a gorgeous leather bound edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - I got mine from Amazon for like, 9£.
Mine's big enough to hold a powder compact, lipgloss, some cash and my keys, but I guess if you got a bigger book to begin with you could easily fit more in there.
My absence from the blogging world has been a bit longer than I intended it to be, but my bucket list for this break was long and I wanted to really have my business in order before I returned to the internet. The lovely weather lately left me feeling a bit... hmmm, frisky maybe, and now I can't wait to bring out the pastels, sandals and all things I couldn't wear during the winter - I'll return to posting my ootds regularly soon!
Thanks for sticking around during my mini-hiatus, and Hi to all new followers! :)
