Make A Sparkly Holiday Clutch With Just 3 Supplies

Jazz up a freebie makeup bag with a sparkly mosaic made of old CDs. SO JAZZY. All you need is a bag, super glue and some old CDs.


I found this red patent leather envelope clutch in the top of my closet. ItĀ appears to have come from a Clarin’s purchase with a free gift. I love the texture, but it needed a little personalization to really stand out.

In middle school I had a purse made of CD’s and duct tape. So using CDs as shiny mosaic pieces on the top flap felt very nostalgic and like, full circle or whatever. It also looks way cool and I spent a solid amount of time just staring at the finished product.


First, I cut up three CDs into pieces of varying sizes. Then I used super glue to attach them to the purse. The end. It was crazy easy.


In case you were wondering, the CDs used were Jessie Ware’s “Devotion,” because I got it for free when I worked at MTV, Death Cab For Cutie’s “Plans” and Gavin DeGraw’s self-titled album for obvious reasons.


Let me know what you think of my sparkly clutch in the comments.

    Really cute idea, and who doesn’t have a bunch of old CD’s laying around just begging to be used for something?
