How to Create a Charm Faux Leather Bookmark

Hello everyone!!!  Kymona from Kreative Kymona here today to share how to create a charm faux leather bookmark for your planner/journal.

I love my Hobonichi planner but it doesn't come with a bookmark to mark the page and this cover doesn't come with one either.  So I decided to create my own.

Let's take a look:


Interesting right!!  Does that bookmark look familiar? It should, its Craft Fantastic Faux Leather Necklace!! 

Yes, you can use the Faux Leather Necklace pieces to create a bookmark.  Depending on the size of your planner/journal, trimming the leather piece might me necessary.  


Here's how I created this bookmark:

  1. Measure the planner/journal using the Faux Leather to see if it fits around the pages.  
  2. For this planner, the faux leather is too long. 
  3. To make it fit, take your time and take the metal piece off of one end using 2 Multi Purpose Jewelry Pliers and cut the faux leather to desired size.
  4. Carefully put the metal piece back, making sure to tighten it onto the faux leather. 
Now that bookmark is complete, now its time to personalize the bookmark.

I had some basic small charms lying around my craft room so I decided to use them. They were already on clips so clipping them in place was easy. 



This charm set needed some color and the faux leather necklace had the silver chain hanging so I decided to make use of it. 

I used a small jump ring to add the Butterfly Link Tray and a purple tiny glass bling to add character to this charm set.  I used another jump ring to add my initial charm to finish off the set. 


I'm in love with my new charms.  I can't wait to make more for my other planners!!!

So what do you think?  Would you consider creating your own bookmarks for your planner/journal? Please let me know below.  I would love to hear from you!!

August Kit Instructions

Coming Soon!

Back To School Idea With Craft Fantastic

Is it Back To School where you live? Here in New Mexico it sure is! And so I thought what would be a great Back To School gift for my daughter than a shiny new key ring! So today, let me share with you what I made for her.

So lets get started. I chose the following to work with: silver key ring kit, silver watch face tray, medium round glass, silver tiny round ornate kit, tiny round glass blingcute heart charm, small silver jump rings, watercolor all sizes inspiration sheet,  fantastic super sticky dots, and fantastic glaze and glue.

Select your image from the image sheet and use a drop of glaze and glue on the flat side of the jewelers glass, place on your chosen images and hold in place until the glass grabs the image sheet.  Then once dry, use a scissor to trim around the jewelers glass. Place fantastic super sticky dot on the watch face tray on the side without the watch face. Peel off the orange piece and adhere your jewelers glass to your charm base. Then take one of the colored gems and attach to the tiny round ornate tray with a super sticky dot. Next, attach your charms to to the key ring. I am showing you both sides below.



So, what do you think of this project? Please leave a comment below and let me know if you like this project!

Special Bangle

Hello everyone!!!  Kymona from Kreative Kymona here today to share a special bangle that I created for my sister.

She loves bangles as much as I do. So making one for her makes me happy, especially since she is about to have a baby in two months.  As a matter of fact, her baby shower is later today, but she has no clue.  We will have her wear it when she arrives.

Let's take a look:

Her favorite color is purple, that was a no brainer to include that.  She loves her name so personalizing the bangle was a must as well!!



I love how it turned out.  The gem is purple but looks like a wine color but it isn't. 

Here's another view:


My sister will love this bangle because the oval tray is double sided so both of her initials are included.

Take a look:


I love how this bangled turned out.  I can't wait for my sister to see this gift that I created for her. 

So what do you think?  Isn't this bangle just the cutest? Please let me know below.  I would love to hear from you!!

Gotta Love Charm Bracelets!

Hi All! I wanted to make something special for my daughter and the adorable charm bracelet kit really just struck a chord with me. It has two sided trays so even though you are attaching five charms you really have ten sides to work with, which really gives you a ton of flexibility.

So lets get started. I chose the antique brass charm bracelet kit, watercolor inspiration mini image sheet, fantastic super sticky dots, and fantastic glaze and glue.

Select your images from the image sheet and use a drop of glaze and glue on the flat side of the jewelers glass, place on your chosen images and hold in place until the glass grabs the image sheet. Repeat for all desired images. Then once dry, use a scissor to trim around the jewelers glass. Place fantastic super sticky dots on both sides of the charm bases. Peel off the orange piece and adhere your jewelers glass to your charm bases. Next, attach your charms to your bracelet with the jump rings included in the kit and there you have an adorable, personalized charm bracelet!

Butterflies and Paris Retro Bracelet

Hi everybody! Kim here from My Kraft Kloset sharing a special gift that I made for my mother, because she loves color, flowers, butterflies,  and wanted something Paris inspired.  think I delivered with the help of these gorgeous images and antique brass products which are on sale in the July Kit-of-the-Month from Craft Fantastic 


Let’s get started: 



2.  Choose your images. That's the hardest part. All of these are just sstunningly beautiful and you want to use them allBut for this project I chose 4 butterflies and 4 Paris images to balance out the bracelet.  


3.  Next I chose this retro round bracelet kit in antique brass because it really gave the images a vintage look. Add a few Fantastic Glaze & Glue droplets onto the back of each glass round circle and place over each image Move your glass around to position your image, and add a little pressure to get any bubbles out.  Repeat. For a total of eight images. 

4. Once set, use a Q-tip to remove any excess glue around the edges of the glass. Cut around the glass and cut out each image.   


6. Add a Fantastic Super Sticky Dots to the bracelet tray, peel off red backing, place the glass into each of the trays, one by one, and press down to secure in place. 


Voila! A spectacular one of a kind handmade bracelet with a vintage retro look that I’m sure my mom is bragging about to all of her neighbors Thanks, Mom!


I hope I’ve inspired you to try a Monthly Kit and make all kinds of wonderful Craft Fantastic products, like the retro bracelet I made from the July Kit above. The possibilities are truly endless!   

Please leave us a comment and let us know what you think, we’d love to hear from you.  Thanks for stopping by!
