Friday I decided I should get crafty. I did two different things: a trio of ribbon wrapped bracelets and a jewelry bamboo dish. I did great on the bracelets since they were so straight forward. The dish? Well, not so much! I’ll let you be the judge of it.
I must say that my little jewelry dish is pretty cute! Of course I am being biased…oh, well.
I bought the Mod Podge and the scrapbook paper a while back and had planned on using them on my journal (which I don’t even use anymore). So they sat there. We moved to WA and decided it was time to get my craft on.
I got the little bamboo plate a while back for a review and I saved it since I knew I wanted to use it for my jewelry.
Being a Mod Podge newbie I was surprised at how easy it was to use it! The smell was a bit overwhelming, but after a bit I did not mind it at all.
The final result is far from perfect. I never thought it was going to be so tedious to place the paper. Never occurred to me that the shape of the plate would make it practically impossible to place the paper perfectyl. So now I have a cute jewelry dish with little bumps here and there…but hey, I made it and I feel quite proud of my almost inexistent crafty skills!
What do you think!? Did I do OK for my first attempt?
