Rhinestone Clutch DIY

Who doesn’t love a little clutch? We opted to spruce up our already bright bag with some of our Swarovski Rhinestone crystals so they can sparkle in the sunlight.

Pour your Gem Tac glue into a small cup. This will allow you to easily dip your pin into the glue in order control the amount of glue distributed. DSC_0062

Dip a small amount of glue onto the tip of your pin. Place the glue onto the part of your bag that you would like to place your Swarovski Rhinestone. Using your finger place each rhinestone down one by one. DSC_0071

As you become more comfortable with the process you’ll begin to move faster. We opted to follow the design of the clutch, but feel free to experiment with your own pattern.

We’re loving our glammed up bag so much that we may even bedazzle the whole thing for another DIY.

Cake Jewelry

Cake jewelry is a popular item that Brides call me for daily.  Although M&J Trimming don’t sell premade cake jewelry, you can easily use M&J products to create your own custom look.  When I was browsing through M&J for ideas for the blog, I noticed these gorgeous crystal spray and pearl sprays.  I was inspired immediately! 

Take the sprays and arrange them so the stems are all lined up and the sprays create nice large flower look.  Tape the top, middle, and bottom to secure for wiring.  Take a piece of beading wire and wrap it (starting at the top) around the stems until you reach the bottom, clip the excess wire.  You can then simply place the new large stem directly into the cake.

Another way to do it is to take one stem, surround it with 4 stems positioned slightly lower (by 1″), position the remaining 7 stems around those 4 another inch lower.  Tape and wrap the same way as before.  This will create a tiered firework effect with the sprays.

If you want a fuller look, try 2 or even 3 packs of sprays.  You can also mix the rhinestone sprays with the pearl sprays for a multi-textured look.  Rhinestone buttons can be added to the tiers with ribbon to carry the cake topper look to the rest of the cake.
