I have lots of hobbies, one is sewing. I collect buttons and fabrics, even antique lace is in my stash. Another addiction is to gather and reuse every tiny little bit of material that may be turned into something pretty. The small left over of an embossed soda can married one of my die cut paper flowers.
One thing I love ICE Resin for is its ability to strengthen delicate materials like paper. It can turn my tiny newspaper flower into jewelry. Can I ask for more?
Materials and Tools:
Felt, and vintage lace embellishments
craft cup and stir stick
needle and thread
Spellbinders® Artisan Explorer™, M-Bossabilities Roman Romance and Bitty Blossoms
1. Cut the soda can with cheap scissors (wear goggles and gloves for your safety) into a rectangle and emboss. Cut your favorite part of the embossed metal and paint (the side with no prints) with pink and grey, let dry and use sandpaper to make the embossed parts pop.
2. Cut, color and roll your paper flower and glue to the metal.
3. Cover everything with a generous amount of ICE Resin, add some glitter and rhinestones while wet, then let dry.
4. Measure your wrist and cut felt and lace to same length, punch 2 holes to the metal and felt and attach with eyelets, add pearls and buttons by hand sewing while sewing the lace to the felt.
5. Sew 2 buttons to one end of the bracelet to close it, my lace had some loops. If your lace has none add some loops of thread on the opposite side where the buttons are attached.
