I went a little crazy on Sunday. Yep more than usual. I saw an ecoetsy post on how to make functional business cards you know something that people would actually pick up and not loose or throw away immediately. One of the ideas was a tutorial on how to make a wearable business card into a ring.
Well I thought this was just the cleverest cutest funest idea and I couldn't wait to try it. The only problem is I don't really have a use for them right now.
However my sister sells her lovely HFR Designs fused plastic upcycled purses and bags at crafts shows so I thought that I would make a few for her and see how she liked them.
Since both of us enjoy upcycling and her products are made from fused plastic I made my ring bands from fused plastic instead of fabric. I have a whole bunch of buttons and then I thought of using corks and bottle tops and I just couldn't stop.
Just writing about it makes me want to stop and make some more. I am wearing one right now as I type just because it make me happy and guess what else? Well my plan and my hope for this blog in the year 2012 is that I will be able to post once a week on Fridays. I have never been that consistent and of course it is only Thursday January 19 and I have decided that I just can't wait until tomorrow to share my little creations so here they are:
The Cork Collection
The Button Collection
The Bottle Cap Collection
The Gum Wrapper Collection
Guess which one is my favorite?
