Nerds Rule Glasses
"Teen crafted, mom approved."
I got these nerd glasses a couple of years ago when I started a nerd club at my old school. I still wear them sometimes for fun and this week wore them for Nerd Day at my new school. Plain nerd glasses were cool, but adding Tulip Glam it Up Crystals made them even cooler! I love these now! You can do this to any pair of glasses you have, even the not so nerdy ones! But hey, let's face it...
Black plastic 'nerd' glasses
Tulip Glam it Up Crystals in clear
Aleene's Platinum Bond Glass and Bead Adhesive
Sand paper or soft nail file
Chain nose pliers OR Tulip Fashion Art Tweezers
1. Rough up the surface of the areas where you'll be attaching crystals. Don't go overboard! You may want to tape the lenses of the glasses to prevent accidentally scratching them.
2. Put some glue into a piece of tin foil and dip the crystals into the glue one by one using tweezers.
3. Adhere them evenly around the rims of your glasses. Take your time and if you want to, mark crystal placement in advance.
4. Allow glue to dry overnight and then wear your nerd glasses with pride!
