- A book, old or new
- A wallet that zips closed or snaps at the top, that will fit inside your book (similar)
- Hot glue gun
- Craft knife
I found these books at Savers a while back, and fell in love with their patterned covers.
I paid $1 for each of them. Then, I found these wallets at Target on clearance for $4.48 each! I bought all I could find, in gray and green. I couldn’t find this exact wallet anymore, but here’s a similar one.
Let’s get started! As you can see, the book pages are glued into the spine. We need to cut right along where the pages meet the spine to detach the pages. Using your craft knife, cut (carefully!) along where the pages meet the spine. Be careful not to cut through the spine.
Alright! Now you’ve removed the book innards, it’s time to add the wallet.
My book is quite wide, but I love the cover too much to just pick a smaller book. So, I’m going to add two wallets to the inside.
Voila! Your own book clutch!
