I'd probably start out with a robot/spaceship and a monster tshirt for my son. After that, all bets are off though I'm seeing some decorations on some of my shopping bags happening...

Barbi said...

I would use them as accents on handmade cards and scrapbook pages. Much like beads or gems but less likely to fall off. That's just for starters: great accent for my many totes and bage! Great product.

soresilient said...

I would like to use it on shirts and skirts. It would also be great for Christmas decorations.

I would love to use these small dots of color on my mixed media pieces. Especially small ones where rhinestones are too bulky. The Beads in a Bottle would perfectly outline a picture or highlight that special piece of ephemera that is crying out to be the star in a piece.

i just found out my soon to be grandbaby (my 1st!!!) is a girl, so i would use beads in a bottle to start making cute decorations for her room. Then once shes older i will be putting them on clothes and accessories for her. plus i'll be using them for clothes and accessories for me too! ;-D

M said...

I have a denim purse that needs a little something.
Beads in the bottle would be perfect to decorate it. I love stippling so the dots would be a cool way to create designs.

wendyp said...

I'd use them in my papercrafting projects! These would be fabulous to cover a book cover with!

Azurafae said...

I would use it to decorate a hand bag or cardigan for my bi-weekly contribution for http://www.skulladay.blogspot.com/ and to have something pretty. Much easier than beading it myself.

Roxi Phillips said...

My head is spinning with additional ideas! I'd love to use Beads in a Bottle to create a wide yoke neck piece to wear as a necklace, christmas ornaments, embellished dog collars for my daughter's pup... and on and on!

The Importance of Being Me said...

I'm making a smash up book for my BFF who I've known since 1988. It's about our friendship. Anyway, it would be so fun to use this pack to add elements to the smash up book for her.

K. Miller said...

Really, I would try it on everything I can get my hands on! First, I would cover a box with fabric and do some experimenting. I think a beanie or beret made from an upcycled t-shirt would be a cool canvas. Speaking of canvas...tote bags, shoes, and how about artists canvas? Oh, the places you'll go Beads in a Bottle!

CJG said...

I think that I'd try it out on a t-shirt and make some sort of decorative "trim." Of course, I'd like to reconstruct the t-shirt first to make an old Hanes men's t-shirt into something a little more flattering. And then I could doll it up with some Beads in a Bottle.

I'd also like to make a little clutch purse or change purse (or even a wallet to hold all of my store rewards cards) with a frog on it. I'm thinking that I could use one of my frog rubber stamps (I have one that is wildly patterned) to stamp the design. I could fill in the design with the Beads in a Bottle and then stitch it into the purse.

It could also be fun to take a pair of old canvas shoes I have and, after tossing them in the wash, attacking them with Beads in a Bottle in some sort of random design. It would definitely be out of my comfort zone to try something so unplanned, but it could turn into something great!

JustMeJustina said...

I would love to make shirts with my DD who is summer vacation. She usually makes shirts, purses, etc while she in on vacation but this would make it even more fun to do!!

Shala Kerrigan said...

I'd like to use it on clear elastic to make anklets and bracelets.

groovyonetoo said...

I would get my 4 nieces and 2 daughters together for one heck of a clothes decorating party! Between them and their dolls that would be one stylish bunch.

Nadia's Beautiful Mess said...

Beads in a bottle is brilliant! I would use these for all my paper craft creations. I would use these to add dimension to my cards!
Nadia

Me said...

I've just sewed my very first dress and what better way to decorate MORE dresses and purses with my own designs with something as unique and FUN as Beads in a Bottle. Thanks! <3

Pilisa said...

I've been meaning to try these for a while on T-shirts and a handbag that I think that they'd look great on. Thanks for the inspiration to get out there and try them. And thanks for the opportunity for such a big prize pack!

Crystal said...

I will use the products to embellish fabrics on purses, quilts, clothes, aprons, ect.... This is such an awesome opportunity!

ReFashioned by Lisa said...

I have this paper machete bodice that I need to put some color on it. I would start with that and she would get a beautiful skirt. she will be my model to be in pictures when I take pictures of my jewelery.

CupcakeCatie said...

I would just love to decorate some canvas library bags for some friends. And of course Tshirts for the ladies in my family! :)

cbowlingtn said...

I am teaching my 9 and 11 year old granddaughters to sew and make crafts. I'm sure we could create a few masterpieces with this huge prize pack.

Celeste said...

Charline & Tyra said...

As a polymer clay artist, specializing in pen and ink jewelry, I would use Beads in a Bottle to create coordinating clothing articles to accompany my jewelry creations.

java diva said...

I have some solid shirts that I want to decorate with the beads in a bottle and on some denim skirts!

Clockwork Doll said...

With my daughter, add glitz to our accessories,.and whatever else inspires us.

Kate said...

I would make a few things. 1st decorate my daughters canvas sneakers. 2nd I would decorate my Skirt, 3rd my others daughters t-shirt.

Pinkdilla said...

I would use them in my Christmas Ornaments, I'm working on Christmas early this year so maybe I will finish in time!

Catherine said...

I think these beads in a bottle would be a fun way to put a design on stretched canvas - - maybe something beachy for my laundry room.

Kyrene said...

I would use it to bling up my boring reusable bags. Lets make shopping pretty!

Crafty Rambles said...

I would use the beads in a bottle to decorate a garden flag that I am making. Thanks!

phishhead57 said...

There's an awful lot of ideas going through my head right now! But I think that I would have my Girl Scout troop use these bottle beads to decorate some fabric frames that we are working on.

Home of the Fairy Smasher said...

I would have a blast with my 5 year old granddaughter! We are planning a tye dye party this summer - I already have the Tulip kits ready for that. So, this would just give us more to play with. Love the products!

Rosalee said...

There are so many amazing things that one could make. I would use it on sewing projects, cards and Scrapbook LO. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed. Thanks for the chance
Hugs, Rosalee

DellaLuna said...

I would use them to decorate the covers of my art journals. And probably get an old lamp from the thrift store, and go to town on it with this. :D I'd also try them on my art journal pages, just to see if they'd dry sticky, and if not, they'd be all over my pages! Oh, and boxes! These boxes I have that are begging to be decorated with these - yup, those too!!

Thanks for the opportunity!!

Carole RB said...

I would use them in my handmade cards, my art journal and probably on a few tshirts for my godson. Thanks for the opportunity to win

Pat said...

I am probably showing my age, but I remember when you had a similar product which I have used to decorate T-shirts. I would do it again and I can reuse some of the patterns I bought then.

Betsy said...

Oh my girls and I would have a fun time embellishing t-shirts and head bands and jewelry! What a fun prize package!

TracyM #6773 said...

I am TOTALLY inspired by Michelle's (Faerie Dust Dreams) poppy clip that I would try creating some pretty flowers for cards, layouts and off-the-page projects :)
Thank you for the chance to win this awesome prize!!!

Vicky said...

Wow! Love everyone's project! So creative and fun! and this giveaway is FANtastic! tfs :) I would use Beads in a Bottle to enhance designs on all the fabric I've got stashed for special projects! Accenting flourishes, polka dots and flowers... WooHoo! I'm all excited!

Sandy said...

Laura Stewart said...

Emily said...

These are awesome! Thanks for the chance to win. I would use it on my photography canvas project to add some pop to the paint.

jes x said...

I found a bunch of vintage table runners in amazing patterns that i have been making into purses, laptop and tablet cases for friends that have been lacking something. now I know it was beads in a bottle.

Marie said...

Beads in a bottle is a good idea....it will be great to put them on ribbons and lace, when regular beads won't stay put. Love vintage cards and I use a lots of beads of different sizes and now I don't have the problem of running out of a specific size of bead when using beads in a bottles. Thanks

addicted2shopping said...

I would embellish jewelry

Ayelet said...

What a great product!!! I love using beads in scrap booking. I will use Beads in a bottle on flowers, ribbons, lace and also as an embelishment by it self.

paperpedaler said...

I am enjoying time creating a mixed media art journal. So these marvelous beads in a bottle would be a nice addition to my journaling.

burningrubber2 said...

Oh my, This looks like an awsome product! I have so many plain shirts that I keep saying I will gussy up and have done nothing. I have 8 pairs of leggings all the same style and color(Hey! they were on sale). It would be awsome to make each one a different design and make them more interesting.

Karen said...

Perfect for adding some bling and fun to the purses I make. Love that you came out with a new product and can't wait to try it.

Terri said...

Well, the first thing to pop into my head was the fabric cuffs I've been making for my grandgirls. Some beads in a bottle would surely make them more like real "jewel"ry. Then accents on my cards... details on T shirts... Wow! I can see them on lots of things.

Shirley B said...

I would use them on handmade cards. I am always adding bling to cards.

Liberty said...

this product looks so awesome! I can't pick just one thing... I'd decorate my shoes, bags, purses, curtains and hair accessories for starters. I'd also definitely use it in my mixed media sculpture paintings and art journalling. Looks like lots of fun! I'd love to be entered in the giveaway.

Danielle Bialka said...

i would like to be entered in to the drawing please!

Kaneka said...

I would use it to decorate favor boxes for my sister's wedding. Hope I win.

Sheree said...

WOW! I could decorate clothes for my grandkids, baby items for upcoming showers, gifts for a bride to be..... And the list just goes on.

crhoffart said...

This would work great on the Tooth Fairy Pillow I make!

jjjjhibdon said...

Scrapbook embellishments, hair bows, t-shirts...lots to try!!!!!Thanx for the drawing!

Terry said...

Ooh I would use them to accent the handmade cards and scrapbooking pages I do for my class! I would love to accent the flowers and make flurries with them. I would also fill in the center of the flowers and accentuate the shapes of the lace around the photos on the scrapbook pages. There are soo many ideas in my head on how to use them. I'm sure my participants in my class would love to use them as well. :)

Nancy said...

I found a super cute vintage purse at a thrift store and bought it wanting to craft/upcycle it. Tulip Beads in a bottle paint would be perfect for this project!

I would have a tie dye party with my girlfiends. Last time we had one everything ended up dyed from bed sheets to bras! Tie dye and mai Thai's

Angela B. said...

Patricia said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE Tulip Beads In A Bottle! I would (and do) use them to embellish my handmade greeting cards.

Kelly Sas said...

Angelbird said...

My Neice is about to have a Birthday party and this would be a great activity to make t-shirts and purses for the girls my neice is about 6 and another is about 4 they have Birthdays close together so tie dye shirts would be nice ,Use the iron ons for the purses or on the front of the shirts,beads for the shirts,The girls are so attracted to that bead creates on tv that this would be a substitute that would be more easy for the girls to design a t-shirt,a birthday the girls will all remember. I also would buy some plain sandals for the girls so that we could make jewels on them.

mummsie said...

I would like to decorate cloth and plastic headbands with it. Might be tempted to decorate a pair of tennis shoes as well. What a fab give away. Thanks
