Blingy Headphones DIY

Julie and I decided to make some blingy headphones for each other just to mix things up a bit and work on a project together.  I made rhinestone covered headphones for her and she made a pair of (SUPER CUTE) decoden headphones for me, which she ultimately kept.....because she was really making them for her.  Can you believe it!  Still, we had fun and got to work with some really fun Blumenthal Lansing buttons.  Make sure to check out their site for the sweetest buttons you'll ever find.  As always, have fun, make messes and don't forget to Make Your Mark!
