Simple Blinged Skirt

before adding bling










In my last post, I showed you Bailey's Bling Bet cork board. Of course I had to make Maddie something too, right? :) My girls both love bling!

I picked up this skirt-purse at Walmart for a couple dollars. Cute, huh? All I did with it, is stamp an M on the skirt with white craft ink and then add the Swarovski crystals (in her favorite color) to the letter. Easy peasy! Maddie loved it and made that super cute, baby cooing "awwwwwwwwww" that I love. :)

Gift cost:
$3 purse
$2.25 crystals
---------------
$5.25 total cost
Having an appreciative little girl: PRICELESS. :)

Time to make this: 10 minutes

The crystals I used are "hot fix". They can be applied easily using a special heat gun. You can even pick up the crystals with the heat tool and then lay them down where you want them. SUPER cool! Look for the tool and the crystals on the MFT site Wednesday night at 10:00 pm Eastern!

My Favorite Things (http://www.mftstamps.com/) is having a New Release Cocktail Party on Wednesday, February 4th from 9-10 p.m. EST. This month there are THREE new sets being released including a Who's that Girl set that is GOING DIGITAL!

Head over to the MFT forum on http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ to find out all the details and to find out how YOU can be the next MFT Guest Designer. We hope to see you there on Wednesday night.

Stamps: Bling Bet
Ink: White craft
Accessories: Swarovski heat fix crystals (MFT), Applicator (MFT)
