DIY Charlotte Olympia Air Mail Clutch

By Dreamcreate @THEdreamcreate


Okay…. I might have a problem with loving ridiculous accessories.

I’m not sure why I love this (sold out) Charlotte Olympia Air Mail clutch, but the heart wants what the heart wants…


The original clutch goes for $950, and I spent about $30 making my own.
I get my ridiculous accessory and I save $920 – I think this qualifies as a life win.

Tools Needed

a white leather clutch / red, blue, gold acrylic paint / black puffy paint / painters tape / scissors


1 / First tape off a painting template for the border – make sure to tape right before you paint, as leaving tape on leather for too long can strip the base colour

2 / Next paint alternating red and blue – I used three thin coats of paint

3 / Remove tape as soon as the paint dries – clean up any edges that bled or look uneven

4 / With a pen, write the lettering and draw the mail stamps – don’t worry about being too precise, the original version has a hand-drawn quality.

5 / With black puffy paint, trace over what you drew

6 / After the mail stamp lines have dried, paint over it with gold paint – three coats should be enough

* / Optional step – use a matte spray finish to seal all the paint – this will keep paint from peeling


Something about holding the clutch makes me want to travel!


Feel free to tell me how ridiculous or how awesome you think this DIY is!
