This Runway DIY book clutch is an easy project that is geek-chic and functional. Perfect for the sophisticated type who like to look studious no matter where they go, this literature purse is ideal. At first glance, this purse looks like a regular textbook. In reality, it has more functionality.

The materials needed to put this together includes a hardcover book, some glue, a brush, a clasp, a ruler and a knife. Simply carve out the pages in the book with a knife, glue the loose pages and sides together then attach a clasp.

The inspiration for these clutches came from Olympia Le-Tan, who specializes in hardcover book clutches. Le-Tan’s purses are quite pricey, so for those who want to achieve the same look at an affordable cost, this fun DIY project is the perfect alternative.
