Inspired by transparent clutches from designers that would set you back hundreds if not thousands of dollars, this DIY clutch tutorial by Swellmayde lets you get the look without breaking the bank.

The DIY purse project involves two rectangular acrylic trays, held together by hinges and closed off with a metal clasp. The great thing about this craft is that there are so many ways you can make it your own with colored lucite trays, vintage hinges, unusual closures or even the placement of each of the adornments. Plus, since it's so revealing, the personality of the whole clutch changes once you put a few small items inside it, especially if they are brightly hued.

Implications - This article is useful to businesses because it gets the creative juices going. Just because a purse is a purse doesn’t mean it will stay that way forever. Starting trends involves taking elements from the past and giving them a new purpose or function. This article gets that conversation started.
