stars & stripes

if you live near a target (or you are on social media at all) you know about the one spot, the place where your dollar bills disappear, lol. well i picked up a cute little wooden sign for the 4th of july and it was cute but needed a little something. so epiphany crafts tools to the rescue paired with some paper crafting goodies.

i started with the sign and a leftover red scrap of paper. one of the things i love  about epiphany crafts tools  is they work perfectly for using your scrap pieces of paper. i put some gold star shaped stickers on the scrap of paper and used the epiphany crafts pennet tool and bubble caps. to make some cute embellishments to glue on the sign.

i also picked up two old schoolbooks at a thrift store that i thought would be cute with the sign…and since they were a little worn looking the sign seemed to stark white. i used some distress ink and a sponge to make the sign match the books better.

after that i glued the pennets on the sign and added a couple gold star stickers right onto the sign.  next i made another larger pennet glued onto a skewer that was then glued to the back of the sign. on the large pennet i made a prize ribbon with an epiphany round 25 bubble cap as the center. lastly i used a wooden star card i colored with color shine and added some glitter  to put with the sign.  also if i had realized it, i also would have bought the epiphany crafts star tool so i could have put a gold star in the center of the wood cut out card to make it even cuter!

Stars and Stripes Earrings

Hey everyone, Chelsea here with you today.  If you are like me and you love earrings then I have a fun project for you! These will be perfect for the 4th of July! You can also customize them to your liking.

To make these earrings I used the Round 14 tool and bubble caps with fun patterned paper. Then I used a hot glue gun to adhere the bubble caps to the brad setting. Once the hot glue had cooled off I cut the backs of the brads off and adhered a blank earring back to each one. You can find blank earring backs at most craft supply stores in the jewelry section.

I love the way these earrings turned out and I can’t wait to wear a pair on the 4th of July!

Red, White and Blue Bracelet

Hi! Raechelle here today sharing a 4th of July bracelet I made for my daughter.

RWB bracelet

I used the Shape Studio Round 14 tool and coordinating Bubble Caps and then adhered the finished circles to the Round Metal Settings.

I braided some floss and then tied the charms to the braid with additional pieces of twine. Each of the charms is adjustable and can be slid to accommodate different size wrists and design options.

This was an easy project that came together quickly, and her friends are already asking me when I will make them one.

Get Personal With Fleur!

One of my favorite things to make with my Epiphany Crafts tools are personalized key chains.  I have made them for friends, teachers, coaches – pretty much everyone except me.  I decided it was time to change that so I made one for myself.

Keychain1

I used the Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Tool Round 25 and the coordinating charms to make this one.  I printed the photo so that it would fit inside the circle then added it to the charm.

I also found a sticker that was a perfect fit for the round 25 tool and added that as well.

To finish it off I added a tassel that I made.
