DIY Embellished Crossbody Bags

Accessories, DIY  /   /  By Aimee Santos

Today our guest blogger is Aimee Santos from Swellmayde, one of the best DIY style blogs we know.

I have become a big fan of allover embellished accessories after seeing it season after season on the runway from Isabel Marant, one of my favorite designers. I especially love this trend as a fun update to my spring and summer wardrobe. Here, I teach you how to easily recreate this look on a crossbody bag. You can definitely take the same steps and try it on something you already have in your closet, like a pouch or pair of sandals.

1. Squeeze a small amount of e6000 onto the paper plate. Take a toothpick and add a dab of e6000 onto the back one of the flatback studs or stones.

2. Place the stud/stone, adhesive side down onto the bag to start your design. Continue gluing your studs/stones, starting with one stud shape at a time. I started with the gunmetal dome stud.
