Up, Up and Away


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.

Supplies: 
Candy Spiegel
Candy Scraps


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.
