Hi! Candy Spiegel back to share another project you can make with Globecraft & Piccolo products. This time, I opted to make a hot-air balloon you can pin to your lapel.
- Large Teardrop Bezel
- Embossing/Enamel Powder Adhesive
- Starry Sky Embossing Powder (new ... coming soon online!)
- Royal Sterling Embossing Powder (coming soon)
- Vintage Silver Embossing Powder
- Instant UV Resin (also coming soon)
- Glastique Gloss Finishing Glaze
- Charm Brooch Pins
- Elizabeth Crafts border stickers
- Art Glitter glitter
- Prima wood-vener butterfly
- Sizzix embossing folder
I started with a Large Teardrop Bezel. Made from bookboard, these are thinner and stronger than traditional chipboard.
I coated both the front and back with Starry Sky Embossing Powder. (coating the back makes it look like a finished piece of jewelry and not a craft project.)
Then I added stickers from Elizabeth Crafts to make a design on the hot-air balloon.
Next, I added a bit of glitter to the pattern.
Once dry, I coated the entire balloon with Glastique to seal it all.
Then, I decided to cover a wood veneer butterfly by Prima with Royal Sterling Embossing Powder.
I coated both pieces with the new Instant UV Resin and then glued the butterfly onto the balloon.
For the basket, I cut out a piece of the extra bookboard the bezels came attached to into a square.
Then I embossed the square with a Sizzix embossing folder and coated both sides with Vintage Silver Embossing Powder and Instant UV Resin.
I poked holes and strung wire through the basket to attach it to the balloon.
Finally, I glued a pin to the back.
And here is the finished project again ... what do you think?
I used the Large Teardrop Bezel to make a pendant, as well. Click on my blog to see the instructions.
