A Fun and Quirky Bracelet!



I am so excited for today's project. Do you know anyone down on life..who maybe needs a little "luck"?  This is seriously such a fun gift to put together. You can make it as personal as you would like. 


To start out, you need washers (yes, I said that right!), some beading wire, some clasps, and some beads.

Take your plain washers...
Use some small alphabet stamps and stamp the washers with Staz-On ink. This will stay on permanently once it dries! My washers say "Lucky", "wish away", and "Good for 1 wish"

Bead up your bracelet..see how fun and personal you can make this!

I wanted to make a little bag to go along with it..so I sewed a large rectagle together (or you can just use one piece of fabric.  This is another really fun trick..Have you ever stamped on fabric and used it as a guide to embroider?  It is so fun!
I sewed a little drawstring line and put a ribbon through it..added the bracelet..and Voila, a fun and personal gift to someone who needs just a bit of lifting!

So, what do you think?

Don't forget to submit your St. Patty's/Rainbow posts to me at kikicreates at gmail dot com for the chance to be featured on Saturday. I have had some really fun ones come in. Cannot wait to see what you make!

That is adorable! I've never heard of that ink before . . . looks just as cute (and easier than) the metal stamping. Thanks!

I love this bracelet! I can not believe that it is not hand stamped with metal stamps! It looks so good, and to think the ink will stay on! So much better than using metal stamps! Thanks so much for sharing. I featured this on my friday favorites!
