Jimmy Choo Inspired Clutch

March 18, 2012

I spotted this Jimmy Choo clutch in Australia’s Harper’s Bazaar’s April 2012 issue. It retails for AUD$2525! Ouch!

Jimmy Choo is another one of those unattainable brands that make girls like me oh so sad. Ahh to own a Jimmy Choo bag, that would be the life!

But enough with the pining! I will deal with this is issue like I do most; I’ll make my own version!

For this project you will need a wooden craft box, a drawer pull, glitter (I’ve mixed together equal parts of both gold and brass to create a dual tone), a paint brush, super glue, PVA glue and clear acrylic spray paint.

We will start by using super glue to attach the drawer pull / handle onto the box.

Leave the super glue to dry for a good hour, maybe even a couple. We want to make sure its stuck well and good.

Use a paint brush to paint the PVA onto one side at a time.

Place a sheet of paper underneath the box (your glitter supplies will thank you), and pour your glitter in excess over the box and press it into the glue.

Tap of all excess glitter onto the sheet of paper underneath and leave the box to dry. You can the use the paper to funnel the glitter back into its container (see I told you, plus it’s less mess solution).

Glue glitter on each side until the whole box is covered. Be sure to pay particular attention when painting the glue around the hardwear.

Now all you have to do is give it a few even coats of clear acrylic spray paint and you’re done!

Yay! This one is super quick and so simple but it will add just the right amount of glitz to your favourite outfit! Heck this would even go great with my Louboutin Inspired Pumps!
