Talking New project help!!! Decorating badge reels

Ive just purchases a few badge reels to decorate, but don't know where to begin. I saw a short YouTube video on how to cover them with fabric. Where do I get the mold and buttons? How would you decorate with rhinestones? What other ways can you decorate them? I dont know what i need or where to get the supplies.I'm going to start making these for Christmas gifts for my co-workers. can anyone help me? I'm so lost.

Use flatback (not hotfix) rhinestones and E6000. Let it cure for at least 24 hours before wearing or using.

I think that is the smallest one that looks good, I forget what size it is but there is one size that they can't even put facets in, I think it was the 4. As long as it has facets then that should be good.

Thank you. I cant wait to start this project. I work at a hospital and last year so many people baked goodies as gifts for Christmas. I wanted to do something different thats unique but not pricy. I wanted to do either fabric or rhinestones for the ladies and fabric (maybe sports teams) for the docs. Do you recommend anywhere that has really cute fabric with small prints? As for the rhinestones, do you just create your own design or are there guides or tutorials out there?

I just create my own designs, usually using inspriation from logos, etc.

This lady is absolutely amazing, she is a very well known person in the rhinestoning world. She does lots of stuff for celebrities, etc.

OMG they are awesome!! I hope mine turn out good. Do you use tweezers to put the 4mm rhinestones in its place? Can the E6000 glue can be found at the local hardware stores or wal-mart? Im so excited, I cant wait to start. I want to start early because i dont have that much free time so it will probably take me a few months to finish a few of them. I hope my friends at work like them.

I've been wanting to try a few of these too but I just haven't had any idea what to put on them. The crystal ones are really nice!! Let us know how yours go maybe I'll give them a whirl.
