Here's a quick and easy personalized cosmetic bag that takes less than 30 minutes to make!
I am always on the lookout for items that I can personalize because I feel that a gift carries more meaning when it has a personal connection to the recipient. Recently I found this cute peach cosmetic bag that just had HELLO on it - it was just calling out to be embellished.
The writing on the bag was already gold, so I got out my Joy Gold Script Letters to spell out the word BEAUTIFUL, which fit across the bag perfectly.
Since this bag is made from a synthetic material, I decided liquid tacky glue would be better than a hot iron. I used a glue with a fine-point applicator for these delicate letters.
Apply a piece of painter's tape to the bag to keep everything lined up straight, then press the letters into place with tweezers. Start in the middle of the word - then work your way to the right, and then to the left.
Fill with some fun cosmetics, perfume and nail polish and you have a great gift for anyone who might need a pretty pick-me-up!
