    When we first spied Prada's resort '12 campaign, our eyes went right to a certain jewel-encrusted clutch that looks like it came straight out of the treasure room in the royal palace. Sadly, since our bank accounts are a little emptier than Will's and Kate's, we decided to make our own version of this blinged-out bag for next to nothing. In fact, this DIY is the perfect way to turn an old clutch or a worn vintage hand-me-down into something new and impossibly chic — all you'll need are some acrylic gems, a few dabs of glue, and a little bit of time (we're talking under an hour, here). Oh, and if you want to tell your friends you picked it up at some pricy boutique, don't worry: Your secret is safe with us.
