Different uses for Brads and Bling

My favorite time of year is about to start and I couldn’t be any more excited. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I wanted to share a fun idea with you.  Here’s a simple project to create with the kids by decorating an already made wood coffin I found at a local craft store.


First use the wooden box as a template to cut out inserts for the coffin.  You will need one for the inside bottom of the coffin and another for the inside top of the coffin.  I used red card stock and stamped it with spider webs.  Then I used the NEW Mini Spider brads to finish the webbing I stamped.  Next, I used felt to line the inside bottom of the coffin and inked the edges black to give it a more custom look.

I also used 21 mm Red Jewel Brads to line the outside of the coffinNext, Line the top rim with Black Pearl strips. The pearls are on a strip which makes it easier to adhere on to your project.  After all is added your done!

For my next project I designed this card using flowers and jewel bling.


I used Paper Flowers which I folded in half and added the star burst bling from the bulk bling pack.  For the center I used a black pearl to finish the detail of the flower.


Hope you enjoyed the two different projects today and I’ll be back with more fun and innovative ways to design with brads and bling.

Have a great day!
