Fiesta Frame - Crafting Rocks

Guest Post: Make a Paper & Crystal Beads Butterfly Pin | Crafts Unleashed

Welcome to another great Festive Friday Hop - creating Christmas cards all year with the exception of December has been something totally new to me, well making cards is something I had stopped many years ago, and this group of amazing designers has inspired me to pick it up again.   So join us by visiting all the blogs that are on the side of this post and you just might get inspired to join us. 
If you got here from Leslie Rahye , you are in the right place - however make sure you start over at Terri's blog
So some how this week just went too fast for me.  Or maybe I just didn't want Friday to get here too soon!!!  Well I made this card tonight.  Of all days I get home late from the office.  I had no idea what I was about to make and well what started as an easy card with a couple of materials turned into the opposite.  I had some of the goodies I got from Charity Wings form last CHA this year so I decide…

Guitar String Jewelry

My son has been playing guitar since like 2003 or earlier - one day he came to me and said lets see how creative you are!  I was playing my guitar and busted some strings, here make me something I can wear or use with the strings.  Well I accepted his  challenge and he was just happy to get this awesome bracelet - that is what he said.  I've done other things like cross necklaces and rings, and earrings and well you get the picture.
Here are some photos - let me know what you think.

Polka Dot Jewelry

So I made a stop at Hobby Lobby one day and looking for white ribbon spools and found a nice white polka dot ribbon, and then a black and well there were lots of different colors. Well I did get the white ribbon I originally was looking for; these polka dot were extra and just got them because they are pretty and are my favorite two colors.

The first photo shows a set I designed exclusively for LIMIRI, LLC. 

I was making some jewelry and decided to turn to the polka dotted ribbons and well I like them as they are, since they are already glittered, I didn't want to add any beads or crystals.  These earrings are as light as feathers. I decided to cut out the dots only, by leaving a little of the sheer fabric to keep the dots all in one piece. 

It's always fun to make jewelry out of other elements besides beads and wire.  Hope you all like these.

Quick Snippers®

I design paper jewelry for LIMIRI, LLC by using their Quick Snippers® tool.  When I was asked to create jewelry by using paper as the main component, I was like how??? would I be able to do this.  Now I love crafting challenges and this sure was one, I have done jewelry using all other materials but not with paper, and I am not talking about paper beads.  Well I can honestly say that I am loving the concept of making paper jewelry, it has made me step out of what I was doing before.  
As for this great tool, I love the fact that I have six tools at hand.  That I can carry with me to the office or anywhere else I know I will make time to do a bit of paper crafting.  I use this tool any time I want to use paper in a project with a decorative edge. 
Check out some of the designs that I have created for LIMIRI, LLC .

All these papers were cut using Quick Snippers®, a perfect tool for any paper crafting project and for the traveling crafter.
