Sparkle Handmade Putz House

My daughter loves Putz or Glitter Houses. They are those tiny Christmas paper houses from the 40's and 50's. She has many different styles, but this year she wanted to try her hand at making her own. 

I thought I would use the Dazzling Diamond sticker sheets from the Buckle Boutique to make mine sparkle, which means less glue = less mess. 

I used a paper house design I found on the web here.

I cut it out of cardstock, then I cut pieces of the sticker sheet to fit each panel of the house and roof. I stuck the sticker sheets on and glued the house together. Photo (10)

I used a piece of the Rowlux Illusion Film for the door.

Then I used Beacon 527 glue and baking soda to make the snow.Photo 4

 I'm in love with how easy it was to make and no mess of the glitter and the baking soda didn't make as big of a mess as I thought. 

These make cute gifts for the holiday season.

Sparkly Office Supplies for Back to School!

It’s time to start the new school year and what better way to do it than to add bling to all your office supplies.

It’s a simple project using the Dazzling Diamond Sticker sheets from The Buckle Boutique.

I purchased a box of boring yellow #2 pencils, they looked sad just being plain so a quick wrap of sparkle vinyl makes them pretty.

Binder clips in a box are not very exciting but add some glitz and clip them around the pencil can – now they are a desk accessory!

Office-7

Then use the scraps to add pizazz to thumbtacks!

These would make great back to school gift for teachers or an addition to a college care package.

Rhinestone Butterfly Floral Picks

I was lucky enough to win a set of punches. I used the solid butterfly punch with the Buckle Boutique's Dazzling Diamond Sticker Sheets to make these cute butterfly floral picks. I added them to a flower arrangement we made from fresh picked flowers and they really made the whole thing sparkle.

Butterfly-1

Start by using a paper punch to punch out the butterfly shape. YES! I said use the paper punch with the Dazzling Diamond Sticker Sheet!! Isn't that fabulous!

So, punch out the butterflies. You need 2 in each color. Peel off the backing of the sticker sheet and place the butterfly on the floral stick, stick the other one to the back. Bend the tip to make it look like the butterfly is flying.

Place it the vase with some pretty flowers!

Lucky Irish Banner

It's March. In March our world becomes nothing but Irish Dance. I wanted to make a cute little banner decoration for our wall for my tiny dancer. Green, orange and sparkly, she loves it. Here's to a little Luck of the Irish!

I'm also a quick crafter. If the project takes longer than an hour, I feel it's not for me. This fun project took less than an hour and I hand cut the letters and penants.

The letters are cut from the Orange Dazzling Diamond Sticker Sheets from the Buckle Boutique. I used a chunky font and traced them onto the sticker sheet. I used a basic craft knife to cut them out. You can also cut the resin rhinestones with everyday scissors. The sticker sheet is a peel and stick. Once the letters were cut out, all I had to do is peel the backing off and stick the tight to the burlap.

The pennants are cut from green burlap from the DCWV Burlap Stack. I'm in love with the shabby chic messy look of this banner, the burlap can also be cut with a very neat edge, I just like it this way.

Instead of the traditional ribbon or twine, I used a heavy gage copper wire to string the pennants together. On either end I loop and twisted 4 leaf clovers and used them as the hanging points.

The felt shamrocks are sticky back precuts I found in the dollar bin at the craft store.

It is as fun as it is simple.

Sparkle Stocking – Holiday Projects

 
Welcome to The Buckle Boutique Winter Bling Party!

 

Today the Design Team will be sharing projects we created using the products from The Buckle Boutique for your winter holiday crafting.  Get ready for some projects with rhinestones, sparkle and bling!

My project takes a dollar store stocking from drab to fab using an iron on rhinestone fabric and a rhinestone brooch.

Stocking

Start off by grabbing a stocking from the dollar store and a piece of the Multi Color Rhinestone Fabric.

Stocking-2

On the back draw a basic Christmas Tree shape and using everyday scissors, cut the shape out. That's right you read that correct, all you need are basic scissors to cut the fabric!!!

Stocking-3

Next, Cut a piece of white or clear crystal Rhinestone Fabric for the top band of the stocking.

Stocking-5

Heat the iron up and press the Rhinestone Fabric tight to the stocking. The backing of the fabric is a heat sensitive adhesive that only takes about 30 seconds to press.

Once the top band and the decorative tree have been pressed into place take a Fancy Round Circle Rhinestone Brooch and pin it to the top band of the stocking.

Now, hang the stocking by the chimney with care and hope that Saint Nick fills it with even more sparkly treats!

Spice Up Serving Utensils with Bling!

I purchased these serving spoons from the dollar store. There was 2 in a package, so that means they are $0.50 each. By themselves they are boring, disposable, utilitarian serving utensils. With only 5 minutes and a couple of strips of the Clear Jeweled Dazzling Diamond Sticker Sheet  you can create a fabulous looking serving spoon to add class to your covered dish, this holiday season.

Dazzlediamondspoon

I measured the length of the handle of the spoon and cut a strip of the Clear Jeweled Dazzling Diamond Sticker Sheet, with a regular pair of scissors, matching the measured length. Next, peel the backing off and stick it right to the handle. I placed a strip on the front and the back on the spoon.

Dazzlediamondspoon-2 Dazzlediamondspoon-4

Done, that's it. Since this is a resin vinyl you can gently wash the spoons by hand for reuse. Plus the larger gems add a little grip to the handle, just another added bonus!

These would make a cheap but beautiful hostess gift. And if you forget them at the holiday party, it's no big deal.

I hope you enjoy them and make your holidays sparkle this year!  If you want to add a little sparkle to your life visit the Buckle Boutique!
