Here’s the sitch: Your BFF’s birthday is this weekend. You
wanna get her something personal, something she’ll love and use all the
time…but you’re running low on funds
The solution? Why, this glitzy mirrored compact, of course!
What you’ll need:
Plain mirrored compact
Hot glue and a hot glue gun (You can use a variety of glues
but be warned: Superglue will make the rhinestones appear cloudy!)
Rhinestones and any other decorations you’d like to use
What you’ll do:
Spread some newspaper over your work surface, plug in your
hot glue gun and get to work, girl! Take your time to keep things neat as you
glue on your rhinestones or other decorations. If you want to create a
design—like your BFF’s initials—you should plan it out before you begin gluing.
A sweet touch is grabbing a cosmetic compact from the
drugstore containing your bud’s go-to makeup. You can bejewel a lipstick, a pot
of lip balm, the end of a mascara wand—just about anything!
