It's a Bling Thing

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

All good bling needs a home! This shabby chic jewelry frame holder is just the thing! Glue on a few knobs, cut some vinyl to match your décor and before you know it, you have a designer jewelry frame! 

Supplies Needed:

Sizzix: Eclips machine, Happi Shapes & Alphabet cartridge
Adams & Co: Oatmeal rectangle frame

Oh My Crafts Vinyl: Violet Flake, Black, Transfer tape

Tim Holtz: Curio Knobs

Adhesive: E6000

1. Evenly space 5 knobs across the frame, mark lightly with a pencil. 
2. Arrange knobs in order and set above marking. 
3. Follow the directions on the E6000 package for adhering to a non- porous surface. Have a small wooden stick ready to use for placing a medium size dot of glue on the metal frame and on the bottom of the knob. Too much glue and it will spread out around the knob. This glue needs to time cure - 24 hours at least.

1. Set machine to 12x24 for mat size and use vinyl setting. 
2. Cut solid black letters at 2 inches on solid setting. Pick centers and weed around letters. Set aside. 
3. Cut shadow out at 2 inches on shadow setting. This will automatically be larger than the solid letter so no need to manually adjust. 
4. Layer the solid black letter over the sparkly purple vinyl using transfer tape. Use a new piece of transfer tape to lift the phrase from the liner backing. 5. Arrange words on metal frame and burnish in place.

Note: Any electronic die cutting machine can be used for this project. 

Happy crafting!

That is such a lovely jewelry holder. Unfortunately i have so much that it will not hold it all. I use Umbra Fotofalls Series to hang my jewelry.

Great idea. I would just add more knobs.

This is cool. I made one with an old window screen. The screen is great to hold your ear rings and at the top and botton and down the sides of the frame I put pretty knobs to hold bracelets and necklaces. I painted it vintage white
