DIY- From Drab to Fab, Making a Glitter Clutch

I bought this burlap clutch at Hobby Lobby for a whopping $3.59 after I used my 40% off coupon. I liked it because  it is a great size, 6 in. tall by 12 in. wide. I thought the color was a little boring and the material was flimsy. For about a week,  ideas came to me and I decided that I  loved glitter and cobalt blue, so I put them together for the clutch.

Supplies needed for this project are: clutch, newspaper,  Mod Podge Glue in matte, glitter of your choice, paper plate, foam brush ,and a plastic bag. 

I put the bag over the interior because the material that is lined inside is my favorite part.
First, you will mix the glue with the glitter and then tape the snap, so it was free from debris. Then, use the foam brush and paint it on.The trick is it will take around five coats, this process creates a more durable material for the clutch.  The glue takes around 20 minutes to dry. I painted the front bottom and the back the silver glitter.

I am loving cobalt blue, and color blocking. So, I decided to use the blue glitter at the top of the clutch. One more supply you will need is packaging tape to keep the blue glitter only at the top. Again, the trick is about 4 to 5 coats.

One of the main reasons I loved this bag was the interior fabric. To ensure no glue gets in the interior, make sure to put a plastic bag inside.

 I think the final product turned out fabulous. I can't wait use to use this clutch. Give it a try and let me know how it worked for you.
