As a crafty person, I’ve always enjoyed a good DIY project. From creating my own jewelry, handbags and even artwork, I love to spend the occasional weekend painting, sewing, beading, studding – just creating! So I was excited to be personally invited by Fiber One to participate in their ‘Snackcessory Challenge‘.
Fiber One Bars and Brownies (the official snack of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week) teamed up with celebrity style expert Bobbie Thomas to encourage consumers to show their crafty skills through the first-ever Fiber One Snackcessory Challenge. Fashionistas, DIYers and Fiber One fans are challenged to create their own Snackcessory, a stylishly designed case or pouch that you can throw in your bag to hold delicious, on-the-go snacks, like Fiber One Bars.
Fiber One sent me some materials to create my own Snackcessory: a black hinged case, some glitter and spray adhesive, a little inspiration from Bobbie Thomas plus Fiber One Bars! I decided to create a simple design using stencil tape to block off the ares I didn’t want covered in glitter. A hard task, I tell ya – there was glitter EVERYWHERE.
Next I poured an ample amount of glitter in a plastic Hefty bag. Then I sprayed the tape-covered case with the adhesive spray (make sure your place is well-ventilated before spraying!) and quickly dunked it inside the bag, sealed it up and started to shake to get the glitter everywhere.
After sufficiently coating the case in glitter, I opened the bag to let it dry for a few hours before taking it out. After I removed the case, I took off the tape to reveal the design, and then gave it a light spray of hairspray to hold the glitter in place.
You too can participate in the challenge, and you have the chance to win a trip for two to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City in February 2013! Through September 30, 2012, visit FiberOne.com and submit a photo and 100-word description of your original Snackcessory design.
