Pals Paper Arts 65- Bring on the Bling!

Happy Thursday! It's time to Play at PPA! This week's challenge is fun because you can make anything and add some BLING to it! Here I have created a cute holder for a small bottle of hand sanitizer that I plan on giving out to some of my gal pals for Halloween. I used the template provided by Erica Cerwin of Pink Buckaroo Designs. Erica regularly plays along with our Pals challenges and I loved her idea of making these holders. You can make these for any holiday or season. Bath & Body Works sells these mini bottles for $1 each, so it makes an inexpensive and useful little gift.

Here is the inside of the holder. I decorated it, too! I cut out the middle of a Lattice die cut. It sorta reminds me of a spider web, but I used Pumpkin Pie instead of Basic Black.

In this close up of my *bling*, you can see how I dressed up an ordinary Pumpkin Pie Designer Button two Basic Black brads from the Vintage Brads box and two different sizes of the Basic Rhinestones in clear.

To finish my project, I used a piece of Peach Parfait 1/2" stitched Poly Ribbon. I hope you enjoyed looking. Let me know if I inspired you at all to create a cute little gift like this. What else could you fit into this holder?

Here is my list of supplies for the above project:

Card Stock: River Rock, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black
Designer Series Paper: Nite Owl
Stamps: Grateful Greetings
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Big Shot, Lattice Bigz Die, Vintage Brads, Black 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Basic Clear Rhinestones, Designer Buttons, Square Scallop Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Peach Parfait 1/2" stitched poly ribbon
