Lavazza coffee packs are made of a sturdy shiny, material that’s perfect for creating casual clutch bags that are ideal for adding a unique touch of colour to your look.
We’ll tell you how to make your clutch bag in just eight steps with a handy infographic.
We used Qualità Oro packs for the gold bag, and Crema e Gusto (Gusto Classico), Bourbon and Qualità Rossa packs for the multi-coloured one.
Among the Qualità Rossa products, we also used the two-pack packages covered with white film, which are lighter but still usable along with the regular packs.
You can see the two creations at the bottom of the infographic: a gold bag, made with just Qualità Oro packages, and a multi-coloured one created with the other coffee packs mentioned above.
Now it’s up to you to choose the Lavazza coffee and colours you prefer: it will take dedication, but it will be worth it!
