Charming Butterfly Bliss + Gifts

Hi everybody! Kim here from My Kraft Kloset sharing a beautifully personalized bracelet I made for my daughter's birthday using these gorgeous *NEW* butterfly images from Craft Fantastic.

 Let’s get started:

1.  Gather up all your supplies from these links: Faux Leather Bracelet Kit,  Cute Heart Charm and Wing Charm, Bright Butterflies image sheet, Fantastic Glaze & Glue, Q-tips, Fantastic Super Sticky Dots, and Multi Purpose Jewelry Pliers.

 2.  Choose your image. That's the hardest part with these gorgeous *NEW* butterfly images. So many colorful and detailed butterflies to choose from. Then I added these tiny "20" number stickers from my sticker stash (for my daughters birth date) and placed directly onto the butterfly image.

3.  Next add several Fantastic Glaze & Glue droplets onto the back of a glass circle (from the kit) and place onto the butterfly image. Move your glass around to position your image, and add a little pressure to get any bubbles out. Hold in place for a couple minutes to set and let dry.

 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 the image.  Place a Fantastic Super Sticky Dot to the silver round link tray (from the kit), peel off red backing, place glass into the tray, and press down to secure in place.

5.  Unhook the bracelet (from the kit), so you have two separate faux leather strap pieces. One at a time, push each strap through the side holes on the silver tray piece to create a loop.
(as shown above)

6.  Take the other end of the strap (the chain or lobster clasp ends) and insert through the loop, and pull tight. Repeat for other side. When finished it will look like the picture below.

Here is a close up. Gorgeous, isn't it? And the faux leather comes in assorted colors or all black kits. 

7.  As shown below: On the left side of the bracelet, where the chain meets the strap, use the pliers to open the first small silver loop from the chain (which is already part of the strap). Add the silver heart charm and close with pliers. On the right side of the bracelet, there is another small silver loop that is also part of the strap, just below the lobster clasp. Open the loop with pliers, add the silver angel wing charm, and close with pliers.

Voila! Another charming handmade jewelry piece that is super special for our daughter's birthday! I hope I’ve inspired you to try these wonderful Craft Fantastic products and try a kit, because the possibilities are truly endless!
