Hope you are all happy, enjoying half term and the beautiful weather we are having at the moment, great to have a nice dry evening for trick or treating, hope you all had fun.
Today I'm sharing a paper jewellery creation with you and some easy steps to making a cute little ring. During the week I will bring you some more, a Candi ring, a Candi flower ribbon wristlets and some hair slides. Here's today's ring..
This is all you need; some good glue - I use Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic, a blank flat top ring, pretty papers, a flower punch, and a gem or petal for the middle. I have also cut a small circle of paper and a circle of acetate to form a base for the flower to give a bit more stability.
Crease each petal down the middle, as the flowers are quite small I have just used my thumb nail to do this instead of a score board. When creased, layer together with a little dab of glue and offset petals. Also, glue paper (flower side up) to circle of acetate to make a base for your flower, pop a dot of glue in centre of acetate and stick flower on top. I have used a faceted pink bead in the centre and to cover up the little hole have stuck on a tiny deeper pink sequin. When glue has had a chance to dry it's time to glue to ring mount, this done give lots of time to dry before wearing. Sometimes I will spray with a little glitter on flower or use glossy accents to give more stability, if you are going to do this, leave popping your centre bead, gem, pearls etc. until you have done this and ring is dry.
Here's the finished ring, sitting on top of the punch I used!
