Still searching for last minute gift ideas for the girl who has everything? Repeat after me: “Don’t buy it off the shelf when you can Do It Yourself.” Get inspired the opulent, special occasion accessories of Nancy Gonzalez, Judith Lieber, and Charlotte Olympia and wow someone on your list with a luxe clutch. A bold, graphic shape wrapped in chic texture and a little touch of bling comes together to create a covetable object she won’t want to put down!To create: Trace the exterior of the wooden box with a marker onto the backside of textured paper. Use solid lines to indicate cuts and dotted lines for folds. Cut out the area with scissors. Glue the paper to your box with mod podge and a foam brush. Repeat these steps for the other side of the box. Attach a button to embellish the top by wrapping wire to the closure.

When the weather outside is frightful, you may as well look delightful…so combat Winter’s burr with a little bit of bling! When House of Holland sent adorable jewelencrusted beanies down the runway we were actually excited for the temperature to drop. And with a handful of delicious Galactic Crystal Beads by SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS at the ready, you can create your own look to kill that beats the chill. Keep warm and craft on!To create: Stitch each Galactic Crystal Bead by SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS onto your beanie with needle and thread. Double thread to fasten the beads securely. Keep the gems close to one another as they will stretch when the hat is worn. Get creative with embellishments… try buttons, beads, anything your head and heart desires.

Trim any excess film from the edges for a clean polished look.
