BeJeweled Purse

Today I am going to show you howto Make a Bejeweled Purse.  

I was thrift shopping last August with my friend Kerry, she is my thrifting buddy, and we found this cute little evening bag. It was really plain though, and if you know my friend Kerry, you know that she likes lots of bling.  Since the purse was only $2.00 We thought it would be a fun project to do for all of you.

Items you need to Bejeweled Purse:

Aleene's Jewel It Embellishing glue
Rhinestones ( all shapes, sizes, and colors )
An Evening Bag
Painter's Pyramids (optional)
Paper plate ( for glue )
Paint brush

1.  I set the purse on painters pyramids to set the purse on, because this evening bag is rounded, so I didn't have any other way to secure it.

2. I measured the width and length of one side, in order to get an idea of how to lay out my rhinestones.

3.  I then laid out the rhinestones in the pattern that I wanted to put them on the purse.  

4. Next, I put the glue on the paper plate.

5. I used the paintbrush to put the glue on the back of the rhinestones.  

6. Then I placed the rhinestones on the purse.  

7.  At times the rhinestones needed to be closer together, so I would dab the glue on the purse also, and then put the rhinestone in place.

8.  I filled in a lot of little rhinestones between the bigger ones.

9.  TIP:  If you have tweezers or something smaller to place the rhinestones, that is easier at times.  Sometimes it was hard getting my fingers into the smaller spaces.

10.  I did the first side of the bag.

11.  I waited 24 hours for the rhinestones to dry and then did the other side.

I love the way this bag came out. I am hoping that Kerry likes it also.  She is so fun, and as we say this evening bag is "VERY KERRY".

I hope that you enjoy making a Bejeweled Purse also.  Let me know what you think.  I always love hearing from you.
