Lavazza coffee packs are made of a sturdy, shiny material that is perfect for creating a stylish, unique clutch bag.
We’ll show you how to make your clutch bag in just eight steps with this handy infographic.
We used Qualità Oro packs for the gold bag, and Crema e Gusto (Gusto Classico) and Qualità Rossa packs for the multi-colored one.
Along with the Qualità Rossa packs, 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 only Qualità Oro packages, and a multi-colored one created with the other coffee packs mentioned above.
Now it’s up to you to choose the Lavazza coffee and colors you love for your clutch bag!
