The design team at Glue, Scissors, Paper had a charm challenge this week. The challenge was to make a charm with bling. My son's wedding is 3 weeks from today, so everything is wedding around here! I thought I would go with that and created a wedding ring charm. I cut clear shrink plastic with my cricut, and colored the bands with a silver sharpie. Then I baked them. After they cooled I covered the diamond with glitter glue, let that dry, then covered the whole thing with crystal effects. I think I will add another coat of crystal effects to smooth them out, but I am happy with how they turned out. I think they would look great on an engagement or wedding card, or tied on a gift.
I am a SAHM (although I do babysit full time) of three children ages 19, 17 & 13. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 22 years. I love to craft, read, and bake, although crafting has consumed my time lately! I got my cricut 14 months ago with intentions of scrapbooking. I have yet to scrap a single page with it! Instead I find myself looking for "projects" I can make. My family says I have a problem. I never knew I loved paper!!!!
