This past weekend, my sister and I crafted, not exactly together, but together from afar. It's the best we could do when we're in need of a craft fix and can't get together!!
Anyways, I had seen an idea for mod podge bangle bracelets on Pinterest and knew right away we could use our (dwindling) stash of Lilly Pulitzer cocktail napkins to make our own! You know how much I love a good mod podge craft...(here) and (here)...and any accessory with a great Lilly print!
For mine, I used a tan acrylic bangle that I had laying around from an URBN sample sale (basically for free) since I wasn't exactly sure how it'd turn out...and was feeling a bit lazy with all the Sunday rain. Em went to JoAnns and bought a silver bangle for $4. And I think that is the way to go - while mine turned out great, I love how hers has a shine to it from the underlying metal, and I think the darker surface made her napkin colors look even brighter!!
(Emily's bracelet is featured above; mine is below using leftover Floaters print napkins from Kathryn's bridal shower).
So yes, I will be heading to JoAnns and my local Lilly store (for my napkins, of course!) this weekend because I'm dying to make more! I think I have a few girlfriends who I would like one of these beauties!
