Gather your materials.

Open the glue and apply a liberal amount to the flat back of the cabochon. Apply the glue to the center as it will spread once you put it on the mirror.

Bali-hai-nui-pocket-mirror-tutorial-3 Pin-it%402x

On the top flap of the mirror apply the cabochon, glue side down, right in the center. Wiggle it slightly to evenly distribute the glue.

Apply a thin line of glue down the length of one brass tube bead.

Bali-hai-nui-pocket-mirror-tutorial-5 Pin-it%402x

Put the tube bead glue side down right next to the cabochon. Repeat with the other tube bead.

Start adding on the rhinestones by putting a small dab of glue to the silver backing of each one and placing them onto the mirror.

This is really cute, but I only received the purple stone and nothing else to make it.

Oops sorry, I should have clarified! I got the mirror and glue but none of the tubes or gems (except the purple one).

Maybe it's the wine while crafting or just clumsy fingers but those little gems were hard for me to maneuver. Any tips on cleaning up unwanted glue on my mirror case?

@stephered - while we typically condone wine with crafting this one is a bit tough with unsure fingers;) Try a little goo-gone on a Q-tip and scrub gently where the glue needs to be removed.
