    I actually made a pop tab bracelet using this link: http://diyfashion.about.com/od/diyjewelrymaking/ss/Pop_Soda_Tab_Bracelet.htm 
    which I personally think is cooler and the tutorial a bit more clear and easy to follow

      That’s really cool, thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for mentioning my blog. Love the links. I remember downscale (i.e. really cheap) versions of the Snow Globe Clutch made for kids in the summer a while back and always wanted one!

    • Grace Atwood says 9.2.12

      Of course.  I love your blog – you have introduced me to so many amazing DIY sites!  (And I really appreciate all of the support you’ve shown Stripes + Sequins!)  I remember those too.  Now, if we could only dream up a DIY version of the above one… would be incredible!

    I wish I could afford that clutch. Its leaving me wondering if I can afford it. Wonder what the pink stuff is?

    • Grace Atwood says 9.4.12

      I know…I think maybe the same stuff that is in Lava lamps!?

    I loved the a beautiful mess photoshop elements tutorial as well. They were able to explain everything in such a concise manner and felt good to know my made-up way wasn’t completely off from their experienced take on collages.

      Yeah, I agree!  And I’ve tried explaining it to others before (without doing nearly as good of a job,) which made me appreciate the post even more!
