If you love projects that sparkle, then you are in for a treat! Today we have a line up of some amazing crafters who will be showing you a variety of project ideas that you can create with The Modern Surrealist Line of Rhinestone Sticker Sheets!
Here’s how I created this stylish and easy project! First I started out by gathering my supplies:
- One Modern Surrealist for the Buckle Boutique Sugar Skull Adhesive Rhinestone Sticker Sheet
- A large square unfinished* tray
- A smaller rectangular unfinished* tray
- A medium sized unfinished* jewelry box
- Acrylic paint & Paintbrush – In this case I used brushed silver and matte black but feel free to mix it up
- Mod Melter
- Blue Mod Melt Sticks
- Scissors – I highly recommend Westcott Brand’s NonStick Scissors for cutting anything with an adhesive backing. And for those detailed fussy cuts, Westcott Brand’s large handle 6″ Titanium Precision Tip Scissors are life changing!
- Large Plastic Studs
- Painters Pyramids
- Versaspin 360
*You could also opt to upcycle an existing box or trays
The first step is to cut out your bling! The Sugar Skull sheet comes with several awesome skulls. Use scissors to cut out the large skull, the 6 medium skulls and the skull repeat pattern portion. Cuts like butter!
Then you are ready to paint your trays and box. I painted only the bottom and inside of my box matte black. The 2 trays I painted completely. The Painters Pyramids and Veraspin 360 helped make the painting job a breeze!
Next I used the Mod Melter (aka my favorite new gadget) to attach little stud “feet” to the bottom of all 3 pieces. It’s so fast and easy! Just squirt and stick! And I love the way the blue Mod Melt Sticks add dimension! Just eyeball to get the feet spaced evenly, no need for math or measuring!
Once you’re done adding the feet, set the trays aside and begin working on embellishing your box lid. I cut a piece of the repeat skull pattern bling to cover the top of the box. Simply peel the plastic backing off of the piece and stick it to the top of the box.
By then I was already starting to play around with the position of the skulls on my trays. I went ahead and peeled the backing off of the large and medium skulls and placed them onto the trays. Did I mention this was super easy! Just peel and stick! No more laborious individual gem setting!
I continued this process until the trays were thoroughly studded, and then I added some studs to the side of the jewelry box just for good measure! One can never have too many studs or too much BLING!!! Here’s a pic of how to adhere to studs. Squirt a little dollop of Mod Melt and attach your stud! It’s that easy! Since the Sugar Skull Rhinestone Sticker Sheet comes with 6 of the medium skulls, I had 3 left over. So naturally I added them to the inside of the box to add a little element of surprise!
Then to add a bit of luxe flair I cut a square of turquoise zebra recycled felt from Kunin! I glued it to the bottom of the box to add a touch of softness to this otherwise hard core rocker chic jewelry box. All in all I am quite pleased with the way these turned out. They were fun and easy to make! And the easiest part of the project was embellishing the pieces with the Modern Surrealist for The Buckle Boutique Rhinestone Sticker Sheets!
