Darby Smart, DIY Magazine Clutch Kit Review

My first Darby Smart DIY kit arrived! YAY!!  I discovered this marvelous website from a recent issue of People Style Watch magazine & I am already completely obsessed with it!  You know all of those projects on Pinterest you see… but don’t really know where to begin to create them?!?… well this site sells kits… which contain everything you would need to create the project!  If you haven’t heard of this yet and you love to craft and create… I highly suggest you check the website out!  This kit was $29.99, from DarbySmart.com.


The packaging was very nice, and among the items included in the kit, was an info card in which I had to go to a Darby Smart how-to web link and enter my key word/ code, to get the DIY instructions.  This project had a 4-step process that was very easy to understand and execute.  Items in the kit, included the following:

  • Black Clutch with chain link shoulder strap
  • Super Glue
  • Mod Podge
  • Foam Brush

They do no supply the magazine cover… that is the unique and creative part of this kit.  I had a really hard time deciding which magazine cover I wanted to use… I have A LOT of old magazines to choose from!  Deciding that was probably the hardest part of the project!  I saw a rottweiler on the cover of ‘Dog World’ magazine in Pet Supermarket ($9.99) and decided I wanted to put this adorable Bubba look-alike on my clutch!!


I didn’t get the magazine cover completely flush with the clutch and I was getting slightly discouraged with how it was turning out, …but the finished product, although not perfect… is SO awesome!!  OMG… I cannot wait to rock this adorable Rottweiler/ Dog World clutch.



I just ordered another kit with a 30% off coupon they emailed me… because I already want to make another one!! This would also make for a great gift!

I give this kit and website 4 paws!!
