Dress It Up With Sequins
Hello, friends! I love working with sequins.
In fact, when I was *much* younger
I collected those cute felt applique kits and spent hours stitching sequins onto
Santa's beard or Frosty's hat. I like that you can really glam something up or just
add a subtle sparkle with a lot or a few sequins!
So today I have two card variations using a little and a lot of Doodlebug sequins.
I think that my most favorite way to add sequins is to hand-stitch them.
For this card I first started with a set of thin dies, felt and a scratch piece of paper
The thing that I love most about Doodlebug's sequins is that you get a nice
mix of flat, opaque, clear and shiny pieces in each jar. I also used some
clear sead beads that I had on hand, which is a necessary component when
stitching sequins...plus it looks pretty too!
You could also make the stitched motif removable (from the card) and
add a pin back or piece of magnet so that it can be displayed in other ways.

This next card goes with the less timely approach to adding sequins...mini adhesive dots!
I've used the 3/16" High Tack Adhesive Dots by Xyron; a great size for sequins.
I simply followed the dot design on the patterned paper in attaching the sequins.

I hope that you find some fun ways to add Doodlebug Sequins to your projects too!
