So here's another idea to perk up a gift for a teen...
I couldn't resist this lovely purple, leather book. It looks and feels so nice. ahhhh.
But I wanted to perk it up a bit. I used the rhinestones from an iron on. I wasn't sure about ironing on leather, so I used crystal effects to glue the stones on instead. It wasn't as painful as I thought it would be. B/C it was an iron on, the jewels were stuck to the plastic paper from the top. So I just turned them over and dabbed Crystal effects on it with a stick pin. Laid it on the journal and waited for it to dry. then I removed the plastic. voila. Embellished leather bound journal.
Thanks for looking,
