We love seeing more and more of these yummy handmade minaudières in maker-land. As minaudières are gaining popularity and the wedding season is almost upon us (as well as parties and special occasions throughout the year), I thought it would be nice to post a tutorial on how to add a quick & simple gusset and bottom edge frame cover, to pimp up your straight edge minaudière. You'll love how the results look and they are totes-practical. Believe me, with these nice little additions on your clamshells you are going to get a lot of "WOW YOU MADE THAT, NOOO WAY!!!!"
These simple gussets will keep all of your essentials safe and stop them from falling out and the optional bottom edged frame cover will prevent any loose credit cards from slipping through the cracks, as well as making them look very neat and smart!
To our delectable curved corner FLORA minaudière I added just the gussets, leaving off the bottom edge cover so you could see how it looks without the cover.
To our popular 90 degree angled COCKTAIL clutch I added gussets and the bottom edge frame cover (the cover will prevent loose credit cards and the like, from slipping through the bottom of the clutch and gives it a very smart finish).
