WhatIWore: How cute is this little cork clutch?! I originally bought sheets of very thin cork for a DIY show makeover, but thought it a little too delicate for that kind of foot traffic.  Instead, I did a little woven wallet makeover! Here’s how!

BEFORE:

Start by measuring out your cork strips. I cut mine 1/4” wide.

Line up strips in tidy row and glue to one edge of wallet, ink marked side down. With hot glue - less is better.

Now weave in short strips. Over, under, over under.  For a tighter weave, shimmy the short strips in close to one another.

Next you’ll trim the excess cork from the short strips and glue down to wallet.  Lastly, you glue down the end of the long strips.

Now, repeat on the other side of the wallet.

To hide any of those rough edges or hot glue, finish up by placing a long strip around the entire border.
