Want2Scrap BLING is a COWBOY thing!

At least, that's how it rolls around my ranch!

There's not much that doesn't look
mighty better with bling,
even this-here, downright BLUE RIBBON
earning paper, from The Robin's Nest!
{Love their WESTERN collection!}

All by itself, a stunning contribution to
ANY paper crafter's tack barn, if you will...

Toss a lil' bling into the round pen, and you're BOUND
to receive high score... I'll even wager, a BEST of SHOW
ribbon on the improvements... Check out what a few
facets of bling can DO for this here, rodeo star!

Park yourself in the winner's circle, you'll want to take
a closer look at the before and after... Then off to the
isles of Want2Scrap®, to get your saddlebags full-o-
the shiny stuff... Our bling is the PERFECT trail guide
to you NEXT winning layout!

I had a FINE time blingin' up this here horse-shoe banner
for a sparklin', custom embellie - it was SO fun and easy
to make, I was inspired to whip out my GUITAR and sing
about it, but....! A few suggestions on how to MAKE ONE
for YOURSELF will have to suffice... for now.

From this fun collection of COWBOY stickers, punch
multiple, same sized circles from cardstock in neutral
colors. Adhere stickers to one of the circle layers,
ink edges. With more cardstock circles,
lay out a line for the banner, measuring
the distance of one, large sized rhinestone
bling, from the 72 Count - Silver Rhinestone
collection from Want2Scrap®.

Secure twine to the centers of each circle in the banner.
(Length of banner to be determined by your project
needs, and the amount of these GREAT stickers from
Robin's Nest!) I recommend purchasing in multiples!
- Just sayin'! With a standard sized hole punch, punch
circles to correspond with large Silver Rhinestones.
Place behind twine, in between large circles. Glue top
piece of sticker covered cardstock circle, OVER the
twine and to the bottom cardstock circle. Add glue to
the large Silver Rhinestone bling and adhere over the
twine and to the small punched cardstock circle. {The
glue will fill the gaps around the twine}

~Wouldn't this make a FUN bracelet!?!~

Okay, it's just paper. But LOOK what it does for this page!

You can BET, my fine lil' cowpoke took home the
ribbons on this day! So glad I had the opportunity
to BLING-OUT the fine memory of such a stellar
performance! Thank you to The Robin's Nest

Want2Scrap design team! I had SUCH a blast

Now I'm hoping YOU'LL be inspired to
PLAY, too! Thanks for letting me share!
