Oh, how I love a good clutch! I have a vintage collection given to me by a friend over the past decade and 50¢ thrift store favorites that I don't have to worry about treating too gently. So, you'd think I wouldn't need every single one of these DIY confetti-filled, fringed, tasseled, and pom pom-ed clutches... but I definitely do.
