Glitter is a girl's best friend

Hey there!

To inaugurate my blog, I'm posting not about shoes but crafts.  Kind of counter-intuitive, I know, but hey, when the glitter calls, I can't not answer.

I've been lucky enough to travel a lot this year, and every place I went I picked up a few little things for my best girls.

It was difficult trying to figure out how to wrap such an eclectic assortment of goodies, though, so I decided to get crafty.

Given my love of Miu Miu's and Kate Spade's sparkly creations as of late, I figured that I would create something that had the same vibe. And that's how this happened.

I went to Michael's Craft Store and bought some plain canvas bags and three different colors of glitter. 

I then used duck tape (I used what I had lying around, but you should probably use blue painter's tape to prevent any seeping glue) to cover the bags. I took off alternating pieces of tape, and then painted the uncovered stripe with Mod Podge. After each stripe I covered the painted area with glitter. 

I let them dry over night (you could probably just let them sit for a half hour or so, but I figured better safe than sorry!) and then I removed the remaining tape. And this was the finished project! 

Happy crafting!
