Hi there! I am so thrilled to have the opportunity to guest post here for the immensely talented Beckie! My name is Amy, and my blog, Positively Splendid, is a place where I share about my passions for cooking, crafting and raising a family. I would love for y’all to stop in for a visit!
I am always on the lookout for unique project ideas. The inspiration for the creation I’ll be sharing with y’all today came in the grocery checkout line, when I was admiring a necklace worn by a fellow shopper. I knew I absolutely had to have one, so I set out to figure out how to make these funky twistable flowers for use on jewelry pieces and the like. My talented mom recently gave me a set of Dritz quick-turn tools that I had been wanting to put to good use, and I knew this project would be perfect for that. I hope you enjoy!
For this project, you will need… Scrap fabric
Snaps and snap setting tool
Hot glue gun
Basic sewing tools: machine, scissors, etc.
These flowers would be terrific for a bib necklace, or even a pair of earrings. To make a cuff as I have, though, here’s what you need to do.
Now, set your snaps on your cuff piece. (I recently shared a detailed post on snaps on my blog, and also a video tutorial.) Set your snaps so the operational side of your socket piece is on the wrong side of your band, while the operational side of your prong piece falls on the right side.
