Do you have a favorite product you're loving at the moment?
We're examining trends today and at the very top of our list has to be SEQUINS! We LOVE these sparkly little gems, and we're not the only ones! Designer Erin Blegen has fallen in love with them too! Here's a mini album she made...
...and she's going to share how she made it!
...as well as some favorite motifs from other papers in the collection.
After the pages were all covered, I added sequin details throughout.
I then decorated the bottom edges of each page with various Webster's Pages trims.
The final step was to decorate the charm piece. I took a small square of wax paper, applied glue to the back of the charm, and adhered the charm to the paper. I then cut away the excess paper from the sides. Next, I prepared the piece of wax paper that would cover the inside front of the charm. To get a perfect-fit, I simply placed my wax paper on a spongy surface (like a piece of cardboard or a cutting mat), and then turned my charm face down before pressing it into the wax paper. It will leave an oval impression which you can use as a guide for cutting around. After filling the inside front of your charm with sequins, adhere the wax paper oval over top.
We hope you enjoyed this look at a fun new trending item! Just proof positive that it's true...all that glitters is not gold and why should it be when we have SEQUINS to fall in love with!?!
