Using your Marvy Uchida Clever Lever Paper Punch in this fun Daisy theme, you can create a pretty charm bracelet and earrings.
Take a look at the supplies you will need:
Marvy Uchida Clever Lever Craft Punch- Daisy
Patterened paper scraps/coordinating cardstock
1″ wood circle
Acrylic paint in coordinating color, paintbrush
decoupage medium, foam brush
Jewelry glue or extra strength tacky glue
jewelry findings- chain, jump rings, head pins, lobster claw clasp, earring backs of choice
Beads to match patterned papers, flat backed rhinestones
Tools- chain nose pliers, round nose pliers, wire nippers, hand drill
Step 1- paint the wood circles with the acrylic paint, back and front
Step 2- Punch several flowers from the patterned paper and cardstock.
Step 3- While waiting for the circles to dry, bead the headpins in desired pattern, like the one here. Use the wire nips (while wearing safety glasses!) to clip off the end of the headpin. Not sure how much to nip? Imagine a 10mm bead on the end of the pin and clip.
Step four- Use your round nose pliers to create loops at the opposite ends of the headpins. Not sure how? Click here. Continue to make six or seven beaded charms.
Step five- Once your circles are dry, use the decoupage medium and foam brush to apply the flower punches to the wood circles. Use two or three coats for more durable charms. Do this step for both sides of the circles
Step six- Use a hand drill to carefully drill a hole at the top of each decoupaged circle. Using the chain nose pliers, open jump ring and insert into the drilled hole.
Step seven- Repeat this step for all wood charms and beaded charms. Use the extra strength tacky glue to glue the rhinestone in the center of the flower, back and front.
Step eight- Open each jump ring and attach the charms to the chain. (I used 8″ of chain, which is a good standard size). Attach the lobster clasp to one end of the chain. Attach a jump ring to the opposite end. Use the extra strength tacky glue to attach the earring backs to the wood circles for earring pair.
