Sweet Williams Charms






I thought the Sweet Williams flower from Cheery Lynn Designs would make a really cute charm, when I went to throw away the shrink film I cut them out of I thought the negative would be perfect for the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 16 - Frame It http://cheerylynndesigns.blogspot.com/2012/02/cheery-lynn-designs-challenge-16-frame.html I “framed” a bead.
Materials:
Cherry Lynn Designs Die-Sweet William
Shrink Film
Stazon Ink
Diamond glaze
Rubber Stamp
Pinch Bail
Jump Ring
Paper Punch

Instructions: Randomly stamp shrink film with any rubber stamp using Stazon ink, cut with Cheery Lynn Designs die, save both the positive and negative, punch a hole to place the bail or jump ring in, follow the shrink films instructions, after the piece cools add a jump ring or bail. To frame the bead coat the tips of the flower with Diamond glaze or a glue that dries clear and wedge the bead in place. This can them be added to a necklace, key ring, or zipper pull. Have fun!




Here is the bracelet that I made the charms for. For the charm centers I wire wrapped a bead, placed in the center, on the back side I just twisted the wire in a circle to keep the bead in place
