Fabulosity Everywhere!

Here's a project that takes... 15 minutes tops with an amazing outcome. Given!
Here's a little D.I.Y. school supply project that will leave everybody gawking.

-Flat backed gemstones, found at Micheals.
-Something that needs to be given a make over. (Folders are the best, but just about everything relatively flat works, like binders and notebooks.)
-Liquid glue. (Elmer's is fine!)

1)Take your school supply. In this case, I will be working with a composition notebook. Lay it out on a flat surface, like a desk.
2)Take all of your gems, ribbon, sequins, and lay them out in a cute design. Some ideas;
*Place ribbon all the way from the top to the bottom, and left to right. Have them meet in the bottom or top right-hand corner.
*Place gems in random order
*Put clusters of sequins around.
*Make a "star" by arranging sequins around gems.
3)Once you are happy with your designs, start glueing them onto the thing you are working with. Be careful to not use too much glue, or else you'll end up with slightly sticky fingers!
4)Let fry overnight for best results.

Voila! You have yourself the most adorable little thing ever. =]

One more tip; Micheal's sells ribbon for a dollar a roll, which is pretty long. Stock up on some, you can use them for crafts, as well as hair decorations. Simple polka dots look absolutely fab in long hair, and can really add an extra BAMM to your outfit.

Love you guys! Please comment for me, and have a BAMMTASTIC day ;)

Love Lots,
