Adding bling to everyday bags

How is this the rope trick you ask... the answer lies in the fact that these are decorative ropes much like the link chains I used in the blingy bag in my previous post and they are available in a mind boggling range at the local fancy store as they are called in India. This red bag is again a pretty packaging... believe it or not!

Here is how you do this in four simple steps with some fabric glue, scissors and the said fancy rope.

 I drew the leaf with the fabric glue tube directly since it comes in a convenient pack with a thin snout.  If it is a complicated drawing you can draw it with fabric chalk and then run over it with the fabric glue. Then comes the fun part. Just glue the rope on. This takes a bit of patience - cut it at places where you will need a sharpish edge and use a pair of blunt edged scissors to nudge the rope into place. When I was done with the leaf I just snipped individual stones and stuck them randomly to make it prettier.

Here is another which I use as an instant kolam or rangoli. These can brighten up any piece of decor in just 15 minutes ... I say that is a snap!
