Making Instructions (Login to see the full instructions)

Cut the wrapping into rectangles of 20cm x 26cm.
Roll them up to form tubes. you can tape them up at the ends or just put a pin to keep it fastened temporarily.
To make the paper water resistant, I wrapped the tube with cellophane and stuck it using double sided tape.An alternate method is to use a water based varnish or plasti dip.
You will have to make about 60 such tubes for the entire clutch.
To make the sides of the clutch, you will have to make two such coils of approx diameter 8.5 cm. You will need about 10-12 tubes.You have to keep in mind that there can be slight errors in measurement, due to the thickness of the paper and how tight you roll the tubes.
You will need two pieces of fabric. the width will equal to the circumference of the circular sides which is approx. 30 cm and the length i though suitable for a clutch was about 22 cm (length of tubes).These two pieces of fabric can we stitched together and then ironed. It provides the lining and also the framework for the tubes.
You need to have your 2 circular sides, your tubes and your piece of fabric ready by this stage to continue.
Begin by stitching the Paper tubes to the fabric one after the other. Try not to leave gaps. This may take a while, but its worth it!
Next stitch the fabric around the tubes. Make sure you select 3 sections of the circular sides to stitch to the fabric, it makes it more stable.
