Make Your Own Varsity Clutch Bag In Under 5 Minutes (PHOTOS)

These days there are few DIY projects that seem out of the realm of possibility: from intricately beaded bracelets to embellished blazers, the choices are endless. However, some of us lack the crafty gene, and we don't have hours to spend on any given project. Instead of deeming yourself a non-DIYer, there are still projects that can be done quickly and easily and and produce something totally unique.

This DIY project was inspired by the varsity trend. The sporty style has manifested itself in varsity jackets, but we decided to give it a different take and make a varsity clutch. It's the perfect way to personalize any plain purse and it makes a great gift (though it's so cute, you'll probably want to keep it for yourself).

Click through the slideshow to see how to make your very own varsity clutch -- we promise it'll take under five minutes.
