Bling Up Your Love!

Maya Road

I'm in love. With glitter. Yes, I think I might have a serious addiction to adding some bling-bling to my Maya Road chipboards. I love how pretty a project looks with a sparkly touch of glitter, bling, or Maya Road's Metallic Mist! So for this project, I'll share with you some of my favorite ways to add a little sparkle to your projects! And tell me at the end of the blog post, if you won't love bling-ing as much as I do! :)

I recently found these pink Christmas wreaths at the Dollar Store, and thought they would be perfect for a Valentine's project. Truthfully, I bought them mainly because I like pink!

Step 1: Ink the square scallop frame, birds, and LOVE chipboard pieces with a color similar to the glitter of your choice. Let dry.

Step 2: Apply a fair amount of liquid glue over inked chipboard pieces. Sprinkle glitter over the glued pieces, shake off excess glitter and leave aside to dry and set.

Step 3: Mist the scallop heart chipboard with metallic silver Maya Mist. Leave aside to dry and set.

Step 4: Time to assemble! I used a hot glue gun to adhere the different elements to the pink wreath.

  • Adhere the glittered square scallop frame to your favorite picture.
  • Adhere frame to wreath, with glittered LOVE on top of the frame.
  • Tie your ribbon into a bow with a bling ribbon slide through the knot. Adhere to wreath.
  • Adhere two suede stitched blossoms (with those gorgeous jewel bling centres). Add velvet leaves.

  • Adhere the two glittered birds chipboard to the Misted scallop heart chipboard. Further embellish with a metallic-inked heart chipboard, stamped with XOXO. Punch a hole at the top, knot a ribbon through and tie to the assembled wreath.

  • Tie a wide satin ribbon through the top of the wreath.

Step 5: Hang up and enjoy your Valentine Wreath in all its bling-ed glory! 

It's the season of love, and here's wishing you a LIFETIME of love! :)
