Bling Your Bin – A CoBranded Promotion with ArtBin, Modern Surrealist & The Buckle Boutique!

March is National Crafting Month! In honor of this special time, ArtBin, Modern Surrealist and The Buckle Boutique have joined forces to bring you an awesome sweepstakes! Enter to win today!!!

You may have heard about the new  Modern Surrealist line of rhinestone sticker sheets for The Buckle Boutique! I used some of them to embellish some fabulous ArtBin cases.  Check it out! Now my ArtBins are fabulous and functional!!!
Since the rhinestone sticker sheet cut easily with scissors, a craft knife or a die cutting machine, I was able to easily cut around the outline of the large Sugar Skull image.  Then I peeled off the backing from the image I cut, and exposed the adhesive to apply the skull to the ArtBin.
I even cut the letters for the word ArtBin out of the sticker sheets!
You can cover a large surface with rhinestones quickly.  Just cut the rhinestone sticker sheet to size, peel of the backing and stick.  In a matter of minutes the top of this ArtBin is covered in rhinestones!  (just think how long that would have taken if you were setting each rhinestone one at a time!)
And since the rhinestone sticker sheets are so flexible, I was even able to wrap the clasp that holds the ArtBin closed!
There are just so many ways you can Bling Your Bin!  Would you like to win an ArtBin and a rhinestone sticker sheet?  Enter our contest below!!!

There will be a total of three winners.

Each winner will receive one ArtBin and one rhinestone sticker sheet (color/pattern of their choice)

*Winners must provide a mailing address within the Continental United States to receive the prizes.
