The Starburst wrapper clutch

I've been saying for a while how I wanted to make a clutch made out of Starburst wrappers.  So for my birthday last year, the boyfriend got me packs of Starburst to get this project going.  It's a nice thought, but it's like getting someone an Ikea dresser for a gift: Oh hey, I got you a dresser! But by the way, you'll need to assemble it yourself. It'll give you hours of hard work, and I'm not gonna help.
Hey boyfriend, I'd better get a regular purse like a normal person for my next birthday instead.

What I'm wearing:
-Polka dot blouse from Pac Sun
-Lavender cardigan from Joe Fresh
-DIY Starburst wrapper clutch

I've also got a handy guide to show you how I made the clutch!

  1. Love the outfit, firstly! Secondly, I think your Starburst wrapper clutch is one of the best designs I've seen. I've seen a lot of bags made out of candy wrappers and such, but I think yours is much more visually appealing in terms of pattern and type of bag than any I've ever come across! Really pretty :)

  5. Lovely outfit! Beautiful polka dot blouse and cool DIY clutch!! Thank you so much for stopping by, would you like to follow each other on "G+" and Bloglovin’? I promise I’ll follow you back <3
    Unfortunately I've heard that the "GFC" is shutting down and will no longer be available after July 1st.... it's really sad :(
    I like "bloglovin" and I have it, but I hate not knowing (and seeing) "who" is following me, so for me the most important is the GFC or the "G+ followers" ;)

  28. Hey girl, thanks for coming by my blog! This is an awesome photo spot! I love the clutch too, I've always been a little skeptical about accessories made out of wrappers, but this looks so chic with your outfit! I love that top! Plus the fact that you made it is really awesome! And ha, I never put any of my furniture together. That's what boyfriends are for!
