all that glitters is rhinestone!

Okay so I'm back.. I wanted to share a nifty and very simple way to organize that horde of rhinestones I have. They used to live in a box, but there came a point that the box didn't want to close... -_-; It was also a hassle trying to go through the stack to find the colors, they'd slip and slide.. and it would just be annoying. To rid myself of that, I picked up the crop-a-dile and punched through the corners of the rhinestone sheets, and ringed them together. Now I can flip through the whole gradation of colors. Wohooo!

PS: I use the self adhesive ones because they save time, and energy as compared to the studs you glue on. It becomes hard to adhere smaller pieces with a glue gun or UHU tube... and these are super easy to use!

IF you want to purchase some, opt for Doodlebug, KaiserCraft or Recollections. Great variety in sizes and colors! :)

Now for the gold...
I made some more flowers... :D

I distressed and gold dusted these. Can you see the sparkles?

Gold Dusted this one too, can you see the glimmer from it? 

This was a blaaaargh attempt. I never like the mesh ones.

This one I like. The metallic disc is a finding from a random shop in Textile Market in Hong Kong. I topped it with a rhinestone. :) Used mesh and this one fancy wrapping tissue... it's a cross between fabric and paper. No idea where it's from, saved it after someone sent a gift wrapped in it. *giggle*
