dengradesign purple black hand fan gem christina aguilera

I was bored & had a packet of acrylic gems from Spotlight, a craft store in Singapore.
Started pasting at the sides of the hand fan that I got from Kate Dengra.
Swarovski crystals would be more glam if I have enough patience. 
On that day, I didn't have any so no bueno. But when I do...this is what I came up with.

Crystals -

Glue -

Hotfix Applicator -

You can get the brush holder, tool & good quality crystals on AliExpress without breaking bank.
I love DIYs but I must tell you this one up there was a total bitch =( ...Tedious process ever. 
Halfway through & I was like, '' why did i even...? ''
No wonder those bling phone cases are so jacked up in price. Don't do it when you are on PMS.

Like this old case of mine.
$79 USD. A hefty price, from LuxAddiction, style #289.
I also had a full on Swarovski phone case that cost me $200 over dollars from Ebay.

After realizing how stupid it was to throw money like that, ( because you are only gonna change phones again in the future & then what? ) I decided to just DIY whatever i can. My pocket is not deep enough to gratify my love for anything shiny. 

My first DIY was a very light one on a lampshade.
Here's another simple DIY which i did on my Trish McEvoy's Make Up Planner. 

Back to the fan...
If you find the fan familiar, you may have seen it on "The Voice" in the hands of  Miss Christina Aguilera. Kate Dengra is the maker of Christina's hand fans. She's originally from England and currently based in Spain. Her hand fans are available on Etsy.

You can customize your own fan by design/colour/fan size. Excellent customer service too.
Shipping was pretty swift.
So, if you are looking for a your own personalized hand fan, check out Kate's shop on Etsy.
