In the same vein as Monday’s post on using a spare handbag strap for your camera, here’s another super easy project you can accomplish in five minutes using materials you have on hand.
One of the biggest challenges in my studio is how to display and store accessories. Sure, I could throw everything in the
abyss back of my closet — but then I find myself wearing the same baubles and bags day in and day out. Instead I want everything on display and neatly organized. The other day I thought, why not “file” my clutches the same way you’d sort your mail?
First I cut cardboard to place inside each clutch to help them hold their shape. (Same idea as storing a water bottle in your riding boots!) Some of my leather clutches were too floppy to stand upright so the cardboard was a necessary addition.
Next I went to the Container Store in search of a pretty letter sorter. Most people probably already own one but for $6 I found a pretty acrylic version. Sold! I was overly excited to get home and tuck my clutches into their new home.
Et voilà! They’re completely organized and in plain view so I actually remember what I own. I even have a couple empty slots which I may or may not use as justification for adding a few new clutches to the rotation 😉 P.S. These ones are American Apparel, Clare Vivier, Persifor, and K. Slademade.
What do you think? I can’t say it’s life-changing but I’m all about an easy project that makes me feel just a teensy bit more organized!
