Instructions

  1. Download and print out provided printable designs. Make colored copies on a laser printer. Cut out all images shown in photo except for the gems. Fill the gems with Dimensional Magic on the paper printouts before you cut them out. Once they have dried completely, you can cut them out. Refer to the photo to see which gems were used on the purse.
  2. Basecoat the inside and outside of purse with Baby Pink. Allow to dry.
  3. Fill the teardrop-shaped Mod Mold with the Gold Mod Melt. Repeat until you have enough to make two flowers. Remove from mold and paint with Cardinal Red. Fill in the single pearl shape several times and paint Baby Pink. These will go on the base paper in between the diamonds.
  4. Make small dots on the Silicone Mat with Gold Metallic Mod Melts and Mod Melter. Allow to cool and then remove. These will be placed along the edge of box.
  5. Make several more gold dots with the metallic gold Mod Melts in different sizes. Allow to cool and remove. These will be place inside the flower petals and around the roses.
  6. Mod Podge the pink base paper (diamond paper) onto the front and back of purse with Ultra Matte Chalk Mod Podge. Allow to dry. Mod Podge the corner pieces in each corner on the edge of the pink paper. Mod Podge the roses and leaves on top of pink paper. Cut out gems used for the petals without the Dimensional Magic and those with the Dimensional Magic along with the others shown in the corners and around flowers.
  7. Apply a topcoat of Ultra Matte Chalk Mod Podge. Allow to dry completely.
  8. Glue the Cardinal Red Petals in place with Mod Podge. Add the gold dots in the center. Make flowers with the gems that do not have Dimensional Magic on them. Mod Podge the petals with the Dimensional Magic in between each petal without the Dimensional Magic. Use Mod Podge to glue the gold center dot. Add green gem leaves.
  9. Glue the other gold dots as shown in photo with Mod Podge. Glue the pink pearl shaped mod molds in between diamonds on the pink base paper.
  10. On the back of paper add the chain along the edge of the paper. Add the corners pieces on top. Add a topcoat of Ultra Matte Chalk Mod Podge.
