|Chanel Metallic Lambskin Ice Cube Clutch from Menx' blog LiveAbsolute|
the photo above (re-posted with author's permission) was very helpful in making of my own version of Chanel Ice Cube clutch.
i spotted my metallic silver quilted clutch (below) at Walmart for $7.00. fake ice-cubes are from my local Hobby Lobby (don't forget to print a 40% off coupon from their website before you go buy anything).
all you need: a guinea-pig clutch, fake ice-cubes, E6000 glue...
... and in no time you have your own version of Chanel beauty. this, of course, is from their winter collection, but won't it look particularly cool in the summer as well - cool, get it?! ;)
i could not stop there and made an ice-cube ring (using JoAnn's adjustable ring) and an ice-box clutch using Erica's tutorial for attaching a door knob, clear container, fake ice-cubes and a clear door knob (all from Hobby Lobby).
for the ring i glued an ice-cube to one of the adjustable rings from this post.
for the ice-box clutch i used "N 5" which is simply a cut-out from black Contact paper (from HomeDepot).
