  • rosie

    (I tried posting and it gave me an error message, if double posting feel free to delete one)
    I fractured my right ankle and my orthopedist has not cleared me to wear heels. Having this to play with will make the wait shorter and better (and shinier!!)

  • Dawn

    I have been losing weight and replacing my tent sized clothes with more fitted items from thrift stores – these need some serious bling for me to rock out in.

  • Joanne

    GREAT tutorial! I never thought I could work with such small crystals, but you have inspired me! I teach 2 year olds, and all the girls have those blinged out sneakers, and now Mrs. Zeidman is gonna have her own pair!!!

  • Jenn

    OMG! LOVE THE SHOES! So glad that this tutorial was posted. I have really wanted to do a pair like this for myself and wasn’t exactly sure how to do it. LOVE IT! I really need to make a pair now! Thanks so much for sharing!

  • Safeena

    Oh I LOVE what you’ve done with those pumps. I have some very loved Ariat riding boots that go back almost 20 years. They’ve been redyed but as their used for dressup (yeah…) they couldbenefit from a little accessorizing.
    Oh yes that would be wonderful, and with the leftovers, cat collar bling. Eleven collars.

  • Tracy M.

    b/c blinging things is every girls dream! I love those shoes <3

  • Erica

    I’ve been impermanently blinging (i.e. glitter) for years. I’d love the opportunity to really bling!

  • Sandy

    I have a pair of red heels just crying for a little bling! But why stop there, my bike is looking a little boring…

  • Rena

    I love this! I definitely need a little more bling and attitude in my wardrobe. Thanks for the inspiration. (and thanks for the tools??)

  • Jasmine

    Corinne, I don’t specifically need ny crystals, but wanted to say that it’s GREAT to see you back on the interwebs crafting again. I sorely miss Threadbanger from way back in the day. Hey…is that an engagement ring! Mazel Tov! OK. Roger roger, over and out.

  • Julia

    Oh, I could sure use that Tulip kit! I just gave birth to my second boy. I’m forever out-numbered! I need some crystals, ribbon and glitter in my life! Baby Clive might even get crystaled up a bit!

  • Diane

    Love, love this idea. I teach art to Junior High and High School kids and we have decorated running shoes with fabric markers. The kids love to use their creativity on these and I believe that they would go crazy over being able to use “bling” as well!

  • Katie Z.

    Ooooh, I really want to do this to a pair of shoes for my wedding– because unfortunately, real bling means a serious budget! The glittery shoes I fell in love with cost $500, which means it’s either diy or go barefoot for this bride! I promise to post pictures! :D

  • Jamie

    My combat boots would love some bling…

  • Ivory

    I definatley need some massive bling supplies. I had some major ankle surgery a couple years ago and as a result am no longer able to wear anything with even the slightest heel. This combined with my huge/wide feet and the huge ankle brace I have to wear, means I’m stuck with either sneakers or ugly old lady flats. I need to get some blingity prettyness on my shoes

  • Debbie Daubs

    This project is so awesome! I have 5 granddaughters and 2 great-granddaughters. That is a lot of bling bling. They love blinged up clothes, purses, or anything prettied up. After seeing this project I think I am going to bling up an old pair of MY SHOES! Love it. Thanks for sharing. Debbie

  • amanda

    I love your shoes!!! I need to be the winner since I love shoes and I’m a missionary on the US with a budget!! :)

  • LMG

    Because I am, as my grandmother would say, “needlessly careless with my things” (and a complete klutz), I recently punctured the platform on a shiny new pair of red patent heels ON THE FIRST WEAR. Clearly, I need something to rectify my needless carelessness, and this would do the trick!

  • Megan M

    OMG… LOVE this tool. All the blinging I could imagine.

  • Agnes N

    My friend and I are want to dress up as blinged-out Lolitas next year at Anime North- we already have our shoes picked out but are in desperate need of some blinging materials to jazz them up- this would be PERFECT!! Thanks for the tutorial :)

  • Sara

    I’ve confessed on my blog before about having a crush on glitter, well anything that sparkles and shines really. I’d be gushing with brightness if I won the kit! By the way, I like how you balanced the bling on your shoes without being gaudy.

  • Mugdha

    I’d love the kit because I can’t afford nearly as many crafty tools as I would like. :x

  • Gina

    I should win this kit because I was running out of ideas for what to wear to the next PTA meeting!

  • eileen

  • Sherry

    I am the Queen of Bling and I would love this kit. What an awesome video and product.

  • Kaila

    This is such a fabulous idea! I’m in love! <3 I would love to win this kit because I wear everything bling and these would match perfectly! :) they are just too darn expensive to buy already made! Great job, you rock!

  • Stephanie

    I want these! I’m a shoe addict and a craft addict. However, as a stay at home mom and military wife, I just don’t have the funds to get shoes like these (or many things for myself at all, let’s face it). I think I would even go a step further and bling out the heel! I craft all the time, and I’m constantly making my own things or re-purposing old things so that I can have things that look amazing but don’t cost a lot. I would LOVE to win this kit so that my crafting addiction can just expand and my wardrobe can get better! Thanks!

  • Anna

    Long ago, in my teenage years, I use to ‘bling’ my blue jeans with beads and sequence. I learned to do this on my own and it made the other popular girls a bit jealous. Now I see that I can use iron-on crystals and a heating tool. How nice it that! Thanks for the idea.
