<p>Who doesn’t love jewels and all things bedazzled? I can’t think of anyone either! My daughter absolutely loves putting glitter, sparkles, and jewels on just about everything these days, therefore I am constantly on the lookout for dazzling craft ideas that she might like. Recently, I was in my local Dollar Tree and I came across these adorable jewel and gem stickers and thought that they would be perfect to incorporate in a craft for my daughter. Since she loves jewelry so much, I thought it would be perfect for her to create her own trinket boxes to hold her jewelry.
