Slip On Emma Simple DIY - Gift Idea for Christmas! November 17 2017

Wow, guys! Can you believe it's almost Christmas? Where did the time go? We're so excited for the holiday season: good food, quality time with our families, and of course, presents! And speaking of presents, if you're not quite sure what to get for everyone on your Christmas shopping list, don't worry, we've got you covered. Keep reading for this super simple Christmas-inspired DIY!

We took one of our Slip On Emma organizers (in pink, of course!) and brought some Christmas bling to the party. It was so quick and easy, but the results were amazing. And since Emma was designed to perfectly fit an iPad, this bedazzled version would make the perfect gift for a trendy student, or a fashionista on the go! Here's what you'll need:

Materials:

  1. A plain coloured bag or bag organizer (in this case, the Slip On Emma)
  2. Some bling! (we used some cute and inexpensive diamantes/rhinestones)
  3. Tassels
  4. Hot glue gun

First thing you want to do is to experiment a little with the placement and design of the decorative elements. There's nothing worse than making mistakes with a hot glue gun!

This was our favourite design (front):

And back:

After that, it's just a matter of gluing down each element into place! Take your time and be careful, they call it a "hot" glue gun for a reason! When we got to the tassels, we snipped off the loop at the top and glued it down the same way we did with the diamantes, and it seemed to work well. We might come back and sew it on, though, for extra security!

Wait for the glue to dry, and that's literally it! Here are a few pictures of our blinged out Emma in action:

How adorable! We love the way the light shines and reflects off the diamantes, and the movement of the tassels. We hope you enjoy this simple and sweet tutorial! Have a merry, crafty Christmas, everyone!
