Make a paper Hermès clutch


If you need a fancy paper envelope for a card or gift, check out these DIY Hermès Jigé Clasp clutch purses. Choose your favorite design, print the PDF (fit-to-page setting), cut, score the folds, and assemble with a bit of glue.


I didn't make the Kelly bag when it was available, but figured I should give this one a shot just to see if it works. It was a bit unclear how the side gussets were supposed to go together, but I ended up folding a crease down the center of each panel and trimming a bit off the top so the sides would align with the front panel of the purse.

Choose from these designs:

I love the skeleton with the red cowboy boots. Definitely my project for the weekend.

Thanks for the link. I wouldn't have found it (not exactly in the market for Hermes on a regular basis) otherwise.

I've already printed out the "Day of the Dead" clutch, I love the skeleton horse on the back of the clutch. Thanks so much (as always)!

thanks so much! These are fab. You always find the best design freebies. These are great for giving little gifts or in lieu of a money wallet. Love it!

The Hermès website is one of the loveliest ever. I subscribe to their newsletter and every time I'm stunned by what I see.

Hi, the Kelly Bags, Jige Clutches and Collier de Chien paper bracelets are all available on Hermes FB page. I've posted about these bags several times on my blog (and Small Good Things had a great tutorial on making waxed heavy duty paper for these clutches)and Facebook is by far the easiest way to download these - just scroll down their photos to find them all.

just an idea: print them on a t-shirt transfer sheet (mirrored), and iron onto canvas or white leather, cut out sew and you have a real bag!
