2012 Election

Last week I posted a poll on Facebook asking you, my lovely readers, to vote on what craft I make! 

The winner was....drum roll please..... DIY Prada Inspired Cluch! This gem was suggested to me awhile back by a reader and I've been wanting to try it. You can find it on Refinery29.  I can't say I was disappointed when the winner was this project. 

I found this small clutch at Forever 21. Well, it is not actually a clutch - it's a makeup brush pouch. I figured it work anyway. 

Using my 50% off coupon, I bought this bag of bedazzled jems at Joanns. 

For fillers, I bought a small of bag of these rhinestones as well as a small bag of oval, multi colored rhinestones.

Next, I placed jewels about the clutch in preparation for the glue. This was a great tip from Refinery29. If I didn't have these instructions, I'm pretty sure I would have just started gluing and ended up with a hideous bedazzled mess.

The next step is to glue the gems on. 

 I put way too much glue on this little guy.

All done!

I absolutely hate where I placed the pink square.

Other than that - I am really pleased with my clutch. This is a really easy, inexpensive, fabulous craft. Can you believe I did not screw this one up too bad?! Not sure that it competes with Prada though...

I have a lot of leftover gems. Looks like I'll be bedazzling a lot in the future.
