D I Y / The Fast Forward Clutch / VHS Video Clutch
For this project you’ll need to take a trip to a hardware store and your mom’s attic.
I actually made this DIY specially for Nastygal.com, they came up with the idea to name it 'the fast forward clutch', it was just too good not to share here too!
• Two VHS video cases (I used frosted ones, one bigger than the other)
• A pair of tiny bolts and nuts
• Copper parts used to attach pipes to a wall
• A strap from one of your other bags
Step One: Start off by ripping the plastic from the video cases. (Now you can check that off your list of things you always wanted to do but weren’t allowed to when you were a kid.)
Step Two: Drill two holes in the middle of the two cases with a small metal drill. Also decide where you want to place the straps and drill holes to attach the copper hardware.
Step Three: Screw on all the hardware; attach the two videotape cases together with two bolts in the middle, and add the rose gold copper parts on the sides.
Step Four: Add a bag strap with clasps or sew on your own.
