Large Expanding Clutch Bag

Hello everyone, I’m back with project number 2 of my Mothers Day Series 2018.

This project was inspired by the Concertina folder I made last year, I wanted something bigger than the last clutch bag I made as I wanted this to hold a rolled up magazine. At 12″ in length this does just the job.

I love the detail of these flowers and the elegant look they give.

To make these you will need…

1 piece of 12″ x 12″ card for the main case, score at 5″ & 7″ along one side.

1 piece of 4″ x 12″ for the lid, score along the 4″ side at 1″ & 1.1/2

2 pieces of 4.7/8 x 6″, score along the 6″ side at every 1/2″

The paper used today is the First Edition, Beyond the Shore 12 x 12 pack, available from Hobbybase UK.

Lots of pre-cut or die-cut flowers.

Embellishments of your choice.

Velcro dots, mine are the brand Velcro and are available on Amazon.

Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made them.

This is very straightforward to make but it looks like its had hours spent on it.

  1. What a fabulous idea Sam, I no longer have my Mum or Mother-in-law but it is my friend’s 50th in March and I know she would love to get a present in a bag like this. I just need now to find a present to go inside the bag. Thank you for sharing this with us crafters. :O)

  2. Hi Sam,

    Thank you for sending me this email with the link to your latest blog post – Large Expanding Clutch Bag

    I watched your You Tube video tutorial and was amazed by how real this clutch bag looked. I wrote a comment and left it on your You Tube channel and on your blog post.

    I have a friend’s 50th birthday coming up and as I have not longer go my Mum or Mother-in-law I thought perhaps I could make one for my friend. She would love it as shoes and handbags are her thing, especially if they are red. All I need to do though after making it will be finding a present that will fit inside.

    Thank you for sharing such a fantastic project with us crafters, Sam.

    Till your next email.
