With this month's Look We Love story in mind, there's no question your WWW editors are in the midst of a love affair with holograms. But of all the stylish prismatic pieces currently available on the market, Stella McCartney's Olegram Hologram Clutch ($590) is at the top of our wish list. Thanks to its rainbow-like luster, the clutch hits perfectly on the season's futuristic look and is sure to be a show-stopping addition to anyone's closet. However, with our winter wardrobe budget currently on hold for holiday gifts, we've decided to embrace a more creative route to get the look, hence this month's Do It Yourself project!
McCartney's ultra-modern carrier was a knockout at her Resort 13 show, and we recognize its potential to be the season's go-to holiday party clutch. Accordingly, we called on our favorite DIY guru, Erica Domesek of P.S. I Made This, to show us step by step how to craft our own inspired-by bag-it's surprisingly easy to make! Read on for ingredient details and instructions, and don't forget to show us your hologram clutch on Twitter.--Nicole Shoohed
1. On a flat surface, place the clear envelope on top of the self-adhesive film. Make sure the hologram side is face down.
Trace around the envelope using a fine-point marker, and cut around all sides. You should have a total of three cutouts: one for the front of the envelope, one for the backside, and one for the flap.
Remove the film sticker from the adhesive and place it onto the envelope carefully.
- To ensure a clean look, trim any excess film on the edges.
