Craftistas Clutch Review

I was so happy when I came home a couple weeks ago to see my Craftistas kit finally came in the mail. Seriously, I did a happy dance. I love getting things in the mail! Here's the deal: For $20/month, they will send you a package each month of a DIY project for you to complete. They provide most of the necessities, and all I needed for mine was a ruler, scissors, and some binder clips.

The packaging was so cute, I even tried not to rip the tissue paper when opening. Actually, I had already opened everything but put it back together for this picture :)

I kinda forgot about taking pictures once things really started going. I think tracing the design out on the faux leather was the hardest part. Then I stabbed myself with the studs a couple times, once drawing a little blood! Oops.

And here's my finished product.

I really recommend trying it out for yourself. I got mine totally free because they are still in their testing phase! From start to finish, it took me about an hour and a half. If I made another one in my own time, I would use a softer adhesive since you can see the little dots from where I glued the fabric together. I also didn't realize when placing the studs that they would land on the top of the clutch like they did. I still love it, especially the gray chevron lining! I don't normally wear studs but when someone compliments it, it feels pretty awesome to say that I made it myself. You can view the Craftistas website HERE.
