For a little over a week now, I have been driving myself crazy trying to come up with an awesome design, and then I realized I was completely over thinking it. I finally took a deep breath and came up with something that is totally me, and i love it! Here’s how I created my gold studded scorpion snackcessory:
All I used was a glasses case, plastic scorpion, and a hot glue gun. I started by giving everything a base coat of gold. Then I covered the glasses case with dots of glue, to create the look of studs. Next, I glued the scorpion in place to resemble a clasp. To finish it off, I gave the whole thing a couple more coats of gold spray paint, and a couple coats of clear for extra protection. And viola! A fashionable way to keep snacks and a Fiber One bar in my bag!
I hope I’ve inspired you, now go get your craft on!
