I love accessories...jewelry, scarves, buttons...any type of "accoutrements" that make a statement. I have a gazillion pins and necklaces and some of my favorites are ones I have made. Here is a quick way to recycle some of those old CDs:
Directions: Heat a CD in boiling water and cut into odd shapes. Cover a CD piece with an embossing ink pad and then with double-sided embossing tape, crinkling it so that it does not stay flat and has some dimension to it. Sprinkle on enamel embossing powders in different colors and heat (the tape will shrivel a bit). If you want the CD to show thru, do not emboss the whole piece. Before the powder dries, sprinkle on some beads, curly wire, sequins or sparkles so that they adhere to the embossong powder. Attach an adhesive pin on back.
If you are making a necklace, punch hole before adding embossing powders. Do not let any powder get into the hole. Add a jump ring thru this hole and hang on a cord. (not sure why this photo is sideways)
I'm joining the Made It Monday party...go visit to see what The Persimmon Perch made-can't beat that!!! Also joining Met Monday...take a hop over there, too!
And...lucky me - Look at what I won from One Cheap B*tch...a cute sleep mask. Go visit Jeanine to see some clever Valentine ideas: (another photo sideways - what am I doing wrong?)
