Introduction: Crystal Box Clutch

About: Hi everyone! I'm a hardcore DIY'er, I've published 11 DIY books, just produced my own TV show called Make Your Mark for PBS/APT, I make YouTube videos every week and I'm buried under a mountain of craft sup...

Make this crystal box clutch with simple acrylic frames and some easy to acquire hardware. You'll be the talk of the party when you carry this!

Step 1: Watch the Video Tutorial

Step 2: You'll Need

E-6000

Two 5"x7" acrylic box frames

2 small brass hinges

1 small brass latch closure

Rhinestones, brooches, crystals

Rhinestone chain

Stick on rhinestones

Transparent tape

Wire cutters (optional)

Step 3:

Remove the cardboard from the frames

Tape them together, mouth to mouth, at each corner

Center your hinges over the boxes where they meet and glue them on with E-6000 Tape them in place while they dry

Flip the boxes over, glue and tape the latch closure where the boxes meet.

Step 4:

Figure out your rhinestone placement

Carefully glue each one in place Add stick-on rhinestone trim around the edges

Remove the tape after about 45 minutes and you're done!

    This is so pretty, but I wouldn't want to out anything inside it! No one wants to see my beat up wallet and half used tube of chapstick! haha

    You need to fill it with $100 bills......Just print some out on your home computer and stuff them in there like they're $1 bills!

    It's awesome! I don't know if I'd want to put anything inside of it! :)

    Maybe just a roll of $100 bills and some keys to a Bently?
