Lets create an easy bracelet!

Today I would like to show you an easy way to create a pretty bracelet
 perfect for the little girls in your life.
Here is what you need:
May Art ribbon, a grosgrain with sealed edges works best
Beads
Bead caps
Needle and thread
 
yep , that all it takes to create this cute little bracelet:
 

lets get started!
 
This bracelet is easy peasey lemon squeezy and will be done in a jiffy and make
 a little girl very happy!
 

 
Run the thread through a loop in to ribbon, leave a tail on the end of the ribbon at least
four inches long. This will be used later to tie the bracelet on.

 
Add a bead cap

 
Then a bead and another cap

 
Flip another loop of ribbon up and Repeat until bracelet is as long as needed, it helps to
 have a small willing model to try the bracelet on. :) 



 
Cut the end of the ribbon and seal the edges with a little glue to prevent fraying.

 
I also found it helpful to add a small amount of glue to each fold of the ribbon.




 

 
That's all!!
and just look how cute it is!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Spellbinders media mixage how to

Hello crafty peeps! Kristie Taylor here with a quick little tutorial for you.
 
 
Today I would like to show you how easy it is to use Spellbinders Media Mixage
collection and some odds and ends from your stash to create a beautiful pendant.

 
Heres what you will need:
Spellbinders Artisan X-plorer
Spellbinders Metal sheets
Spellbinders Media Mixage Bezel
Spellbinders  embossing folder
Alcohol ink
Globecraft UV Resin
Beacon Glass and metal adhesive
Metal "findings"

 
So I started with Spellbinders Heart die, Metal sheets, and an embossing folder. I ran the die cut through the Artisan X-plorer to add texture.  


Then I added on some Alcohol ink to the raised areas.

 
 Then I used Beacon adhesives glass and metal glue to adhere the die cut inside the Bezel.


 

 
Next I adhered several findings from my stash.


 


 
Then I used a nail file to rough up the bezel

 
 
Then I filled the bezel with Globecraft UV Resin

 
And sprinkled on a little glitter.

 
Then sat it aside to dry.

 
And just like that you have a beautiful new piece of jewelry to wear!



 
Thanks so much for dropping by today!
