A Pretty Bracelet, handmade? Sure! I can do that!

This week Stampendous! is teaming up with DIY Bangles to show off some totally awesome projects! These are PERFECT if you like to make handmade gifts for your loved ones!

I got to play with the large Pentagon bangle for this one. It began as simply a plain, wood bracelet, but with a bit of Stampendous! magic... well....

Butterfly Bangle

I began by covering the entire thing with Aged Rose Embossing Enamel. I covered both the outside and the inside of the bangle. To do this, apply VersaMark in sections, sprinkle on the enamel, heat, and repeat until you have gone all the way around the outside. After completing the outside, do the same on the inside - you will need a VersaMarker or a small VersaMark ink pad to easily ink the inside of the bracelet.

The next step for this piece was to stamp the butterflies and flourish from the Charm Collection Perfectly Clear Stamp Set on white tissue with StazOn ink. I carefully trimmed these pieces and then affixed them to the bangle using Beacon Fast Finish.

Finally, I glued gems around the bracelet using Beacon Fabritac. (This stuff is pretty strong, so it was a good choice for this project.) I love how it turned out! AND...I know exactly to whom I'm giving this fun bracelet!

Head on over to the Stampendous! Blog to check out the rest of the great projects made today!!! And be sure to check in throughout the week for LOTS of inspiration!!!
