Project DIY Punk Revival Giveaway


If you’re a fan of M&J Trimming, you’ve probably heard of our DIY subscription box, Project DIY. If you haven’t, here’s a quick rundown. Every month designer, Michelle Levy, creates two to three easy-to-replicate DIYs using high-quality trimming, studs, notions and other embellishments. Then we box up the same materials that she used to create these accessories, except in smaller, single-serving sizes, and send them your way! You get a perfect portion of materials for one of each type of DIY, which means no more having to buy a yard of cord to make a four inch bracelet!

Project DIY Box

Once you receive your Project DIY collection containing the materials and instructions, the ball is in your court. You can either make the pieces according to the directions, modify them to reflect YOUR personal style, or make something completely different! The choice is yours, and the options are limitless.

Runway DIY Blogger of the Month- September!


M&J has always been my go-to source for supplies and inspiration, so being asked to be September’s Blogger of the Month was so flattering and exciting! When I was very young, my great-aunt gave me a beautiful box full of gorgeous silk ribbons for my birthday. I was only about 6 at the time, but I still remember it as one of my favorite presents. When I opened M&J’s box and saw the stunning ribbons they had picked out for me, I felt like a little kid again! There are so many ways to use ribbons and embellishments to take pieces you already have and update them to look fresh off the runway.

Project 1: Button Elastics

I am always tying my hair back in the middle of the day to get it out of my face so I wear a hair elastic on my wrist at all times. This easy DIY brightens up boring hair elastics for a tie that looks just as cute on your wrist as it will in your ponytail!

M&J Items Used:

Enamel Fashion Button Item# 45870011 (Call 1.800.9.MJTRIM)

Project 2: Sweet Rocker Tee:

I absolutely love a great vintage tee. Adding some frills and beaded embellishments can give them a feminine touch – making the perfect top to pair with some leggings and booties for a sweet hard rock look.

M&J Items Used:

3″ Rigid Lace Item# 37077
7/8″ Sequin/Organdy Border Item# 47225 (Call 1.800.9.MJTRIM)
Beaded Applique Item# 39350 (Call 1.800.9.MJTRIM)

Project 3: Prada-Inspired Striped Midi Skirt

Prada’s S/S 11 lollipop colored stripes on sophisticated black items inspired the midi skirt I created. I don’t have a sewing machine, so everything you see here was sewn by hand. It doesn’t take much time, and if you make sure you get a perfectly-matching color of thread, it doesn’t take much talent either!

M&J Items Used:

50Mm Midori Dupioni Silk Item# 37302 in Burnt Sienna and Dahlia
Needle and Thread in colors Item# 42681 Magenta and Poppy
