Some time ago I made some paper bag clutches that hold mini journals, using paper to cover the clutches. Then I decided to make one covered in fabric and lace, and this one emerged. As the clutch was developed, I realized that I wanted it to simply be an evening bag and not hold a journal, so I lined the interior with cream silk fabric and made a lace inner pocket. The flap slides under the rhinestone button to hold the purse closed. The lady and butterflies on the back and the roses inside the flap are all from Graphic 45 Le Romantique paper collection.
