Summer Nights Nintendo DS™ Case

Summer Nights Nintendo DS™ Case Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Artbeads.com owner Cynthia had a terrific time creating this project with her daughter as part of our annual Mommy & Me series. We love how the stones look like planets and stars orbiting in a jet black sky. For the complementary children's design, see the instructions for Summer Days.

When you're both done personalizing your Nintendo DS® cases, use your consoles 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 and cabochons to the top of the case. We chose to glue down our larger crystal and cabochons and fill in the gaps as we went.
