Rose Trim Bracelet

Rose Trim Bracelet:


Last night I was at Joann's in search of some fabric for a project I'm planning next week. While I was browsing the trim section I came across this beautiful, delicate rose trim. I wanted to buy it all in every color, but thankfully my husband was there to restrain me. So I bought 1/2 yard in pink. But I'll be going back!


I decided to use the trim to make this lovely bracelet in the perfect color. So sweet, so lovely, so me!


I know you're all dying to make one too! So hurry and go buy some trim before I clear it all out. 
I'm kidding. Kind of.

Anyways, here's what you'll need:

  • Rose Trim
  • 2 Ribbon Clamps
  • 2 Jump Rings
  • Clasp
  • Needle Nose Pliers
Start by wrapping the trim around your wrist and then cutting to the desired length. 1/4 probably all you will need.



Take your ribbon clamp and with your needle nose pliers clamp it down on one side. Easy!



Repeat on the other side. 


Open one of your jump rings and place around the loop on one of the ribbon clamps. Add your bracelet clasp and then close the jump ring.




Add your jump ring to the other side. 


That's it! 


If you want to make one as a gift and you don't know the measurement of the wrist you are making it for you could easily add a chain to one of the ribbon clamps and make it adjustable!
I hope you all are having a lovely Wednesday!




Tutorial: Beaded Butterflies

Tutorial: Beaded Butterflies:
By DCWV Diary

Today I want to share a tutorial from the DCWV & Blue Moon Beads CHA booth. Remember this gorgeous tree covered in butterflies, beads & jewelry? There were some gorgeous beaded butterflies mixed into the tree. I think these would be so fun and easy to make and mix into your spring & Easter decorations. You could use any color paper and really customize them to your space.

 Supplies & Tools:

Directions:
1. Print and cut out the Butterfly template. Trace desired sizes onto your chosen shades of cardstock and cut them out. *Note: For every small butterfly, you will need a large one (and vise versa).
2. Adhere the body of one small butterfly onto the body of a larger one; repeat until you’ve glued your butterflies together.
3. String beads onto your craft wire and attach them to the body of the butterfly. Repeat until finished.
I know the template doesn’t include the intricate butterfly piece on the top layer. You could use a electronic cutting machine for that, use your Xacto knife to make your own pattern or simply just use a full wing piece on top. Or use a butterfly punch. It is still a beautiful, creative element!

Uncommon Events: Party Perfect Tissue Poms

Uncommon Events: Party Perfect Tissue Poms:


I really enjoy styling parties.

No, seriously... I love it!    I love it so much that if you were a friend of mine and told me you were throwing a party for your child, I would lie in bed that night planning your entire party design, whether you asked me to or not! {Most of the time I try really hard to keep it to myself, so you wouldn't think I was controlling... or crazy } I would even come up with a plan for you to have the most fabulous party and spend a fraction of what you thought you had to spend on decorations! 

How is that you ask?  Tissue Pom Poms!    

They make a bold statement and are super cheap! 



This is where my obsession with tissue pom poms began... good old Martha!  Her tutorial is great for the basics!  All you need is tissue, floral wire, and a good pair of scissors and you are in business! 

There are so many varieties of tissue poms out there, most of them only require a little different cut before you fan out your tissue pom.

 Here are three variations that I use most often:


























I admit that I am a little obsessed with parties, but isn't it amazing what an impact a few dollars and some tissue paper can make?  

If you are a friend of mine, please don't be afraid to tell me that your child is going to have a birthday party!  I promise not to bombard you with all of my elaborate plans... unless you ask! 
Have a great end to your week! 
Your lunatic friend....
*Trish
