<p>It looks like the are plastic gems in there too (with the sequins)-- do you have to place those by hand first?</p>
Hey cpr, there are only sequins on the bag and one large gem on the clasp. Just make sure to paint it first. If you're only using one color of sequin, then paint it the color of the sequin you're using so it looks full.
<p>So simple but so sparkly! I love it!</p>
<p>It's the only way to make them permanent.....That I've found anyway! Merry Christmas Danger! </p>
<p>I'm about to cover everything I own with sequins!!!</p>
