Boo Boo Bling: Really Makes It “All Better!”

Boo Boo Bling: Really Makes It “All Better!”

Recently I was visiting someone’s home, and she lent me a band-aid.  My flip flops, as cute as they were, had rubbed a blister on my toe.  She reached in the cabinet, and said “What do you want – Toy Story or Cars?” I picked “Cars” (I think), and quickly put it on.  It certainly did the job, but I noticed it looked like a sticker!  My mom even asked me, “Why do you have a sticker on your foot?”  I realized I probably have had 2 fun band-aids in my life – a hot pink one in college, and this “Cars” themed bandage.  How fun was this?! I can see how these colorful cover-ups cheer up little ones after accidents.

That “Cars” sticker reminded me of another band-aid incident that didn’t involve me getting a boo boo.  I noticed a girl who had a bejeweled band-aid on her arm, and she let me take a photo.  Upon asking her where she got the decked-out disguise, she said, “I don’t know. My mom got them for me.”  Pre-Research, I started the blog,  using the phrase “Boo Boo Bling,” because that’s certainly what I would call these unique sparkly concealers I recently found.  I tried to look up different things like “Band-aid with jewels” among other titles to figure out where they came from, and I found nothing that looked exactly like this.  However, I looked up “Boo Boo Bling,” & up popped a site called “Boo Boo Bling Shop” and a link to Sephora’s “Boo Boo Bling” products.  I don’t know who actually made this one, but there are options out there – including homemade ones!

At a closer view, this is a clear bandage that has lightweight rhinestones from the craft store attached to it with a lightweight glue.   ……….Other than having to touch a sore boo boo a little, this could easily be handmade.  Keep everything super clean & sterile, and you should be able to create anything you want!

Disclaimer:  Do not go out & try to hurt yourself or others to be able to experiment with this project. (Ha!)

If laughter is the best medicine, then rhinestones are second….
