Our friend and coworker Anne came up with these brilliant little tricks to make your craft supplies serve double duty!
2. Convert Mini Bottles into Art, Message in a Bottle Charms.
Add a set of our new eye screw tops 1206A
to the corks of any of our mini bottles
~ roll up your art or scrap or fabric and put it inside ~
smooth against the edges with the thin wood end of a paintbrush. You can make your mini bottle coordinate with just about anything with a simple switch of a scrap!
3. Create 2-sided reversible rectangle pendants
using our new 1×2″ domino size epoxy bubbles e6000’d
on the back side of our rectangle pendants 412A. You will have to trim about 2mm (tiny tiny amount) off of the bottom of the epoxy bubble.
4. Make 2-sided glass dome keepsake jewelry.
This works best with our thin-rimmed pendant bases such as 413A bases and glass dome tops
. Try some combos like a photo with initial on the back, a baby pic and grad pic on the other side, wedding day and first date pic, etc.
You get the idea! Our square bases 400P work well for double sided square charms and pendants. You can use them with either our 1″ square epoxy bubbles or 1″ square glass domes. (This is Anne’s baby to grad sample with daughter Molly).
