TBB Friday: Blinging out the Bride or Prom Queen

June ... so often we think of brides, proms, graduations, and other special events. And when I think of special events especially for the girls in my life, I think of bling from The Buckle Boutique.  Of course!

Welcome!  It's time again for my TBB Friday ... time to share just a few of the wonderful things I've made with the ingenious products of The Buckle Boutique.

First up, let me show you how a cute celery-colored Kate Spade bag became extra special with a strip of self-adhesive rhinestone resins.

These "Dazzling Diamonds" are clear.  Using standard scissors, I trimmed a strip approximately 1.5" wide for each of the two top edges of this handbag that I found for a "song" at my local thrift store.

First, I wiped down the handbag to be sure it was clean and dust-free. After measuring and cutting the strip from the sheet, I peeled away the backing from the adhesive in the back of the cut sheet and adhered it to the top edges. I gently rubbed and voila! A purse fit for a Prom Queen!

While I was dressing the "Queen," I also made this headband by adhering a row of sequined gems from my Buckle Boutique stash to a headband frame I got at Michael's.

Now this particular gem strip has been discontinued -- but you should visit TBB's website regularly to see what unique bling they are carrying to see how to make your event even more special.

For example, take a look at this gorgeous bridal wrap that I found on their website (!

Looking for more blingedness inspiration?  Take a look around Pinterest ( ... just search for "bling" items.  For the prom goer or the wedding participant or bride, there are luscious things like blinged-out flip-flops, sneakers, sandals, perfume bottles, tote bags and even flasks like this:

With bling from The Buckle Boutique, the starry-sky is the limit of your imagination!
