WMS Soap Day 3.. and a video!

Morning, my dears! I have been so excited for this day - I made a video for you! I thought that boy it would be a lot easier to just show you how to make a PolyShrink bracelet with Very Vintage Labels No. 18 rather than just talk about it. So, here you go!

Here is also a direct link to the video on YouTube.

Wasn't that easy? Here is the finished bracelet I made using the shrunken labels I created in the video (and the three other takes I took.. lol :)

This design is a bit simpler than the one I made for the March release. Here is a close up - see how the color is so pretty and intense?

And an action shot :)

If you're not really into the jewelry thing (I love it when stamps can be used for other things!) here is a cute little card using the largest label shape that I showed you at the end of the video.

See it there? Part of that supah fancy embellishment?

I hung a bead from the hole I punched and adhered a Prima flower to the open spot in the center. Then I glued it to a paper rosette made with the Tim Holtz die. Isn't it yummy? I think it looks really great with the patterned paper (Portrait Collection, Crate Paper) too!

Don't forget to check out the other girls!

I'm glad you stopped in today - I hope you enjoyed the video, I had fun making it. Look for more!

Have a great day!
