Hi Everyone! Day 2 of our Sale-a-bration Blog Hop :) Just to mix it up a little, instead of a card, here's a Soda Pop Top wine glass charm you can make! Really you can use these charms for anything, jewelry, etc... AND I've created a Soda Pop Top charm project bundle to earn a FREE SAB item!
Soda Pop Tops (make 8 large charms, 8 small embellishments) 129388 $3.95
Click here to see how to flatten Soda Pop Tops! scroll down the post a little to see the video.
How to make: - same for both sizes.
Stamp images and punch out using the 1" circle punch for large pop tops or 1/2" circle punch for small pop tops. To seal in the waterbase ink, rub image in VersaMark to cover. Sprinkle Clear Emboss powder over and heat emboss with Heat Tool...or
Punch circles using designers series paper.
Apply a small amount of Chrystal Effects to the pop top. (acts as adhesive) Place image over top. I added either a Rhinestone or Pearl Basic Jewel to the image. Apply Chrystal Effects over top. It will appear creamy but will dry clear. Leave dry about an hour. I typically allow to dry overnight.
Here are a few more pictures of the progress!
With 1/16th handheld punch, punch hole towards top of the large soda pop tops. The small ones were too small to punch after the Chrystal Effects was applied....look for them as embellishments on a future post!
If you have jewelry supplies - you could insert a circle ring thingy. I used White Baker's Twine to tie around the coordinating ribbons!
Being Fab! Inspriations for living a fabulous life. I first heard this quote in a movie then learned it's a wonderful old saying: "The oxen is slow, but the earth is patient." In today's instant gradification lifestyle, I think we sometimes forget to be patient. Persistant and patience can yeild great results!
