The Olympics are in full swing, and in addition to watching the games, isn’t it so exciting to see folks donning all kinds of patriotic fashion from star-spangled outfits to union jack nails? I, too, wanted to show my support for team USA and team Japan but I didn’t want to end up buying random tsotchkes that I would only wear once, so I decided to recycle myself a DIY flag clutch out of an old video tape box. This DIY is uber easy (if you start now, you might even have it ready for the next event), and the best thing about it is that you can rep two different teams if your nationality is hyphenated like my own. When you’re at the pub rooting for team USA, just flash the American flag side and when it’s time for your other team to strut its stuff, just flip your clutch to show the other flag!
