Edgy Charm

After finishing my Look at Me layout for Artfull Craft, I had lots of paper scraps leftover. A charm bracelet seemed the perfect way to use them up. I don't wear much jewellery (not even a wrist-watch). Yet this has been dangling on my left wrist since September. Goes nicely with the Levis T-shirts and surf shorts that's my everyday wear.



This Alisa Burke inspired bracelet is easy to make :

  • cut about 120 pieces in different shapes
  • layered three of each together for stability
  • inked the edges
  • coat with mod podge
  • hook onto a chain using jump rings


Linking up to these parties.

Supplies : Basic Grey Out of Print (Headline, Second edition, Daily news, Impasto, Bits n pieces), chain bracelet, jump rings, Studio g black ink

This is my first time on your blog. Was linked from Flamingo Toes. Had to see how you made that awesome bracelet. What a wonderful way to use up all those scraps you just can't stand to get rid of, in case....
I would think using really colorful and patterned scraps would be a good way for the bracelet links to show up. Could you also use some of that dimensional stuff on the pieces also or is mod podge better for stability? Thanks for great project.
