Getting to work on those holiday gifts!

Hi Everyone! Are you starting to think holiday presents? I am! So today I am bringing you our Retro Posh Bracelet kit. What I love about this bracelet is the many possibilities! The size of the glass in this bracelet gives you a lot of space to work with. You will also need Craft Fantastic Glaze & Glue and Jewelers Sticky Dots.

Now several months ago I was away with my husband and I can't resist going in to paper stores, craft stores, etc. and I happened on a paper specialty store, where I found this really beautiful paper. It was sold in large sheets and was called "Fine Paper" and was in a section that appeared to really be sort of a wrapping paper type section, but it was imported from Asia and is this really beautiful paper that had gold through it, and there were a number of different ones to choose from. Well this is one of those papers. What I really love about it is that you can position your glass on different parts of the paper and get different images. So here is a small piece and you can see I have placed my glass in different ways and color areas to give my bracelet variety.
To get started you will use your Craft Fantastic Glaze & Glue on the back of the glass ovals that come in the Retro Posh Bracelet Kit and glue on to the paper as usual. make sure to use a qtip to clean up any glue that seeps out at the edges. Trim around with a scissor once the glue is dry, trimming at a 45 degree angle so you can get a clean edge.
Now because this glass is pretty large I would suggest using two jewelers sticky dots as I am showing here.
Peel off the orange side of the sticky dots and adhere your finished jewelers glass to complete your project. Here I am showing you the completed bracelet. You can see how the jewelers glass amplifies the gold that is in the paper!

So take a look at your specialty papers and see what wonderful images you can find!
I can't wait to see what you create!
