DIY Awesomeness

Found this fantastic DIY "Transparent Clutch" by Erica on Honestlywtf.com. The following are instructions for this DIY:

STEP 1: You’ll need a clear rectangular hinged box from The Container Store, a pretty knob from Anthropologie, a pair of pliers or a wrench, a heavy duty wire cutter, a drill and a pointed drill bit. (Instructions courtesy of Honestlywtf)

STEP 2: You’ll start by drilling a hole at the top of the plastic box. Use a drill bit that is one size larger than the diameter of the bolt on the knob, otherwise the plastic might crack. Open the lid and slowly drill a hole in the center of the box with very light pressure. Please wear protective eyewear and use caution! You can practice by drilling a few holes into the cover of a plastic CD case. Once the hole is drilled, use wire cutters to trim about an inch off the bolt. You’ll notice that your knob comes with two sets of nuts and washers. Remove one set with your wrench or pliers.

 STEP 3: Push the knob through the hole of the box and replace the washer and nut. Tighten.

 STEP 4: Voila! You’ve just made a glassy, transparent clutch – it was that easy!
