DIY No-Sew Clutch
Fiskars - Trimming thick vinyl fabric - Amplify® RazorEdge™ Fabric Cutting Scissors (8")
Fiskars - Trim the vinyl material to a rectangle - Amplify® RazorEdge™ Fabric Cutting Scissors (8")

1. Begin by trimming the vinyl material to a rectangle measuring 11" x 23" using the Amplify Fabric Shears. These shears are designed to make quick and clean cuts on heavyweight materials, such as vinyl. Taper one end of the rectangle to a point by folding the short ends to a triangle and glue the material. Cut a small slot for a button about 2" away from the point where the materials gather.

2. Fold the fabric rectangle, that is left underneath the triangle, in half so that the pointed end is on the top to create an 'envelope' style opening. Use bulldog clips to hold the vinyl in place at the two sides.
