I've been wanting to try Honestly...WTF's transparent-clutch tutorial for a while now. It's not complicated, but it involves drilling into plastic, which takes a lot of patience. You have to be really gentle. It feels like the drill will never break through and you'll want to apply more pressure, but you don't want to crack the plastic.
I kicked my clutch up a notch by adding screw-in studs like these to the sides. (I used leftovers from the frenemy bracelet.) All I had to do was screw additional holes into the sides of the box. Admittedly, this made the DIY 9-times more complicated (drilling 9 holes instead of 1), but I really like the dainty-meets-tough-girl look that it achieved.
When my new clutch isn't going for a night on the town, it lives on our dresser where it displays Instagram prints.
