Fantabulous Challenge #3 - Bling It On!

Monday, March 29, 2010

It's time for another challenge this week over at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. This weeks' theme is called "Bling It On"!  This one calls for you to use your Cricut to design something using some shine, jewels, glitter etc...

My daughter Rebekah will be home this week. She attends college in California and she's off for spring break. I'm going to host a "Diva Party" for her and her friends. I designed these cute party bags for each of the invited guests.

You can buy any type of party bag at a craft store. Most have solid color bags or ones with stripes, circles, or other designs on them. I used a simple bag with colorful horizontal stripes in bright colors. The bag already had a flower on it. I just blinged it out a little by using green glitter glue in the middle of the flower.  I used jeweled embellishments around the center as well.

I love working with glitter glue. A popular brand to use is "Stickles" glitter glue by Ranger. Michael's and Hobby Lobby craft stores also have different brands of glitter glue that are just as great to use. You can use glitter glue to add some "sparkle" and "bling" to your projects.

You can easily write, dot, dash, draw and embellish on paper, rubber stamping projects, candles, memory album covers and more with glitter glue! Just make sure you let it dry for several hours to let the glue settle and dry properly.

To make this bag really shine I also cut out girly silhouette figures, the purse, and the flowers using the "Forever Young" Cricut cartridge. I also used the "Plantin Schoolbook" cartridge for the lettering. I then added jewel embellishments to the ponytail and the center of the flowers. I used a brad embellishment in the center of the purse.

On the inside I am going to put cute hostess gifts inside and pink tissue paper. I hope Rebekah and her friends love the bags.
