Stamped Tribal Clutch

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 kinds 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.

Stamped Clutch supplies

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 to the burlap.  I really loved how smooth and rich the paint 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 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.

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

Stamped Clutch,

I’m officially in love with this clutch now!

Thank you to Martha Stewart for supplying the craft materials used on this project.  From the brushes to the paints, as you can imagine, Martha sells only the highest quality products and I love them!
