Night Out Shoe Clips

  Clips-1

I needed a little pizazz for a night out. I have a pair of black flats, so I grabbed 2 rhinestone slides from the Buckle Boutique and a pair of shoe clips too. Clip the 2 together and magically a boring pair of flat become party shoes. 

I used the black shoes clips and opened the staple part of the clip that holds the fabric to the shoe clip. I inserted the slide of the heart. I used pliers to crimp the metal prongs tight to the slide.

I didn't even need to use glue. I think a dot of glue would make the whole unit more secure, but by making sure the prongs are crimped tight it isn't necessary. I trimmed the black fabric attached to the shoe clip so it would not show behind the slide.

Rhinestone Buckle Magnet

I love the sparkle of the slides, buckles and brooches from The Buckle Boutique. They are really fabulous, I came up with a way to enjoy the sparkle without it having to be on your outfit. I know, why wouldn't you want it on your outfit but I'm thinking of more like dressing up your environment too!

Rhinestone Buckle (or slides or brooch) magnets! I put mine on the refrigerator to hold up our Summer Bucket List. Every time I open the door it shimmers in the light and makes me smile. These would make great gifts for the girl that love glitz!

I used a small disk magnet from the craft store. I cut a round piece of the Dazzling Diamond Sticker Sheet to stick to the front of the magnet disk. Then I used E6000 glue to adhere the Butterfly Slide to the magnet. I let the glue dry overnight and the project is finished. The result is perfect!

Sparkle Clipboard

Clipboard-5

I'm over the moon with the Rhinestone Trim avalible from The Buckle Boutique. It is easy to cut and can be ironed on fabric but a hot glue gun works great on all other surfaces. I used it along with other Buckle Boutique products and Paper goods from DCWV to make this fun clipboard that can hang in my office and be used to tack or clip items to.

So, how did I make it?

I started with a base of silver Dazzling Diamond Sticker Sheet to cover the entire clip. That way the whole clip sparkled even in the spaces between the trim.

Clipboard-1

Next I went mad with the hot glue gun. I glued a large piece of trim across the widest part of the clip and used a different trim for the middle of the clip.

I ended with attaching a slide to the clip by threading ribbon through the hole and slide, then tying it into a bow. I glued on some of the mesh flowers and the clip was totally blinged out!

For the board, I used a sheet of cork paper from DCWV.

Clipboard-2

It has a peel and stick back, which went on quick and easy. Now the clipboard has a cork surface to tack things to as well as clip.

I used washi tape to fill the gap between the edge of the cork paper to the top of the clipboard.

I clipped a saying cut from the DCWV chalkboard collection.

Pretty and simple, the way I like all my crafts! Hope you love it and add some bling to your life.

Ribbon Slide Bracelet

Ribbonbracelet-6

Here is one of the easiest ways to add bling to your outfit! These pretty satin ribbon bracelets look great for a Summer Wedding or add a black ribbon to match your fave LBD (little black dress). All you need is one great rhinestone slide! Next add ribbon remments! The sky is the limit.

Visit The Buckle Boutique for a great selection of rhinestone slides. Mine is the Lace Inspired Slide.

I like a multi wrap for my bracelet, but you could just have a simple once around bracelet.

For this cream stain bracelet I measured 18". I usually wear a 7" bracelet, so twice around would be 14" I left a little extra to tie a bow.

Ribbonbracelet-1

Cut the ends of the ribbon at angle and use a fray stop or tacky glue to secure the ends. Let it dry completely. The ribbon will keep it's clean cut that way.

Ribbonbracelet-3

Simply slide the rhinestone slide on and wrap the ribbon around the wrist and tie in place.

I love the veristility on one slide and multiple colors of ribbons. Match it to every outfit you own!

Sparkle Mailbox for 18″ Dolls

We all know that our house loves American Girl Dolls, so for Valentine's Day this year we made them their own mailbox. This project was first featured in the American Girl Magazine back in 2013.

Rhinestonemailbox-1

I found that Target has the tin mailbox again this year in the dollar section. The stand is a candle stick from the local craft store.

First, we painted the candle stick pink with acyrlic paint and while it was drying, I let my daughter decorate the box with all kinds of stickers. The rhinestone stickers are made using the Dazzling Diamond Sticker sheet from The Buckle Boutique.  I used my Cricut Cutter to cut out the heart shapes from the rhinestone vinyl. The Dazzling Diamond Sticker Sheets are easy to cut with scissors as well, that how we cut the strips used to bedazzle the edges and flag.

Once the shapes are cut, they are just like stickers, just peel off the backing and stick.

Crafters of all ages can use the rhinestone sticker sheets to bling up any project!  

In my daughter's opinion everything is better when it sparkles.

Sparkle Gloves with Rhinestone Hearts

Bling Gloves

 

These gloves are ready to make your hands warm and your outfit fabulous. I picked up a pair of gloves at the local dollar store and using the Rhinestone Puffy Heart Slide from The Buckle Boutique, I created a fast and simple Valentine's Day accessory that every girl would love to wear, especially here in Pennsylvania.

This project uses the slides instead of the pin back brooches. Why, you might ask, is because by using the slides they can be stitched tight to the glove so it will stay in place while the pin backs may open due to repetative pulling the gloves in and out of pockets. The last thing you want to do is stick the back of your hand with a pin. Yuck!

Using a needle and thread whip stitch the slide back to the glove with a matching color thread, tie a knot and secure. Simple and Easy!

Accessories need Bling too!

Here is a simple way to add a little something to the everyday phone charger. I am in love with the White Dazzling Diamond sticker sheet from The Buckle Boutique. I think it was the perfect match to jazz up my otherwise boring iPhone charger. There are many colors available, so go grab your fave and make something sparkle!!!

Plug

The Dazzling Diamond sticker sheet is an adhesive vinyl that you can cut with everyday scissors and stick to anything!!

Plug2

Start by measuring the width of your plug, then get a measurement for the wrap. Cut a piece of vinyl to wrap around the plug, remove the backing and stick. Done, so simple. You're plug is now bedazzled and it took you maybe 2 minutes! Cut smaller pieces to wrap around the ends of the cord too. How cool is that?

Sparkle Wreath with Brooches

 I had the opportunity to make this gorgeous wreath for a trade show booth for The Buckle Boutique.

Wreath2

I used an 9" circle foam wreath and wrapped it in 1 inch wide ribbon, I secured the ribbon with glue at the begining and the end. Once the wreath was wrapped I used a piece of hand beaded scalloped trim with rhinestones.

Wreath-3

I wrapped that around a couple of times and attached it with an iron, since it's backed with heat bond.

Wreath-2

Once, that was attached I started to pin tight the rhinestone brooches of all sizes. When I filled all the space with pins, I tied an extra piece of ribbon to the top to hang the wreath.
