Today's project is so stinkin' easy it can barely be called a craft, but the results are so amazing, folks will think you spent hours. I was recently sent of box of goodies from Darice containing Gemz and Bling on a Roll. Look at all the fun colors Gemz comes in!
I couldn't wait to play with this stuff so I'm sharing a quick little project ahead of schedule. I've got a bigger project in the works with some bling on a roll. I grabbed some clothespins and binder clips from my stash. (I saw a set of rhinestone clothespins at one of the craft stores recently but knew that I could make way more of them with a pack of clothespins from the Dollar Tree for less than what they wanted for the few in the set.) I painted my clothespins with some white acrylic paint first. Once they were dry, I cut some Gemz to fit and adhered it. So easy! Gemz comes in adhesive backed strips and can be cut and shaped as you need it. I used a 1in x 12 inch strip of crystal AB and a 2 in x 12 in strip of crystal for my pins.
Then I used some crystal and purple to decorate some binder clips.
I love the way these look. The binders can be used for their original purpose or as photo or recipe holders. The clothespins would be fun with magnets on the back used on a magnet board or used in garlands or to clip photos on wire or string in an empty frame.
