I am beyond excited to share that I’ve joined with the 2015 creative team over at Martha Stewart to participate in 12 Months of Martha!  What is that, you ask?  Each month I will receive a box of Martha Stewart craft products and am asked to create something unique and beautiful.  I whole heartedly said, “Yes please!“.

This month I recieved all different sorts of fun core crafting products from paints, to decoupage and fringe scissors.  Today I am sharing how I used those products to create a Stamped Tribal Clutch.

Check out some of the other amazing Martha Stewart crafts I have made!

How to make a Stamped Clutch:

Using a regular sponge, I cut it into various shapes (triangles, diamonds and narrow lines) to stamp my patterns onto the clutch.  Using a small dollop of Martha Stewart paints, I dipped my sponge into the paint and applied it to the burlap.  I really loved how smooth and rich the paint color came out.

I knew for certain that I wanted to cover up the interior of the clutch.  It came with a BOLD leopard print and although some ladies can totally rock that, it didn’t work for me.

I laid down a section of faux leather fabric and traced the shape of my clutch onto it.

I cut out where the magnetic latch was located and then used fabric fusion to secure the faux leather in place, the perfect no-sew option!  The leather only goes a few inches past the opening, but the fabric fusion should hold it in place perfectly.

I love the new leather interior look now and have taken my clutch out for a night on the town a few times already!

I also spray painted the wooden button gold and added four simple white paper squares using Martha Stewart’s decoupage.
