I have an awful habit of losing sunglasses. Needless to say, I’ve accumulated an impressive collection of sunglass cases over the years. Recently we’ve discovered that these abandoned containers can easily by re-purposed into fabulous mini clutches! Inspired by those spotted during Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks, we made a super simple minaudière with just a few tools and a fancy piece of hardware.

You’ll need:
– a hard sunglass case
– a drawer pull
– a wrench –
– a bolt cutter (a bolt cutter is a really useful tool to own for DIY projects and is quite inexpensive!)
– a drill
– a twisted drill bit

Open the sunglass case and drill a hole in the top center. Run the drill through the hole a few times in order to make the opening wide enough to fit the drawer pull. Trim the screw of the drawer pull with the bolt cutter, leaving only half an inch. Push the drawer pull through the hole and attach the accompanying hex nut. Tighten with the wrench.

Easy. As. Pie.

Perfect for all the essentials . . . minimalism at its best!
