Summer Days Nintendo DS® Case Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Help your child decorate their Nintendo DS® case with this fun Mommy and Me project. They can create their own design using the combination of crystals, charms and beads that best matches their case and their personality. Have fun creating with your child, and show off your personality by making the complementary Summer Nights design. Depending on the age of your child, they may need help with the gluing in this project.

When you're both done personalizing your cases, use your Nintendo DS® console to create virtual jewelry with the fun Style Lab™ : Jewelry Design game. Purchase your StyleLab™ : Jewelry Design game from Artbeads.com to ensure you get the best price.

Step One: Use the Gem-Tac permanent adhesive to glue the crystals, beads and charms to the top of the case in a pattern of your choosing.
