Personal scrap jewelry

How many times did you look for just the right piece of jewelry and couldn’t find it? It happened to me so many times, the color is wrong, the shape is too big, the mood is completely off and you left with the what you have worn so many times before. Well..I think I found a solution, Make your own! I know I’m not inventing the wheel and that people have been making their own jewelry for a long time. However I want to share with you my way of doing it and combining my love for paper and scraps. You can take a piece of acrylic block and turning it into a pendant by adhering a pretty pattern paper on the back and attaching a small metal ring for the necklace. Another way is to take a small metal frame and insert a square of paper in it. You can stamp the paper, distress it or paint on it. …

Technique Corner: My guys, a loving LO

A special tribute Lo I made for my three guys from My Punch’s monthly kit. There are a few fun and easy techniques in the layout: Puzzle pieces with rub-ons 1. Adhere the puzzle pieces with a little temporary adhesive to a piece of paper to keep them from moving. 2. Add the rub-on on to the puzzle pieces. 3. Gently cut the rub-on along the edges of the puzzle pieces. 4. Remove the temporary adhesive and attach the puzzle pieces to the LO. Waves of music 1. Draw “music” lines with a pencil. 2. Add different sizes of rhinestones on the lines. Hope you liked it! Have fun creating! Einat

101 Flowers Tutorial #8: Beads in the center!

Hello friends! It’s time for another easy, fun, pretty flower tutorial. This time we’ll give some lovin’ to the flower center and create a really fancy center from beads: 1. Punch 3 flowers. The shape or size doesn’t matter. 2. Ink the edges and give them a 3D shape. 3. Thread small beads on a piece of thin wire. The length of the wire depends on the size of the flower you punched. The bigger the flower the longer the wire. I used 2″ flowers with approximately 3/4″ piece of wire. 4. Decide which flower you want to be on top and insert the edges of the wires through the center of the flower. Make sure the wires stay in their place by adhering the edges with a little scotch tape on the back side of the paper flower. 5. Twist the wires to give them the desired shape. 6. Attach the other two flowers to create a 3D flower. …
