Jewelry takes people’s minds off your wrinkles – Sonja Henie

Hey everyone! I am just getting back from the most amazing trip ever and I wanted to share this tutorial with you on making Color Blocked Gold Bracelets . I will be sharing more about the my trip later this week so make sure to come back and check it out!

If you are like me then you can sometimes be cheap! Very cheap!

I personally call it being “smart”, right. I found a set of gold bracelets a while back at Old Navy and bought them. Check out what I was REALLY doing there when I found them.  I wasn’t sure exactly what I would do with them but I knew I would figure it out and it would be RAD. If you like gold check out this cute gold flag banner I made for a cake.

I finally decided I wanted to add a splash of color to them. Finger nail polish is the best thing to apply to metal because it stays on for a LONG time. Let’s get started. Color Blocked Gold Bracelets How beautiful are these bracelets. I knew they would be a hit on my vacation and now I am madly in love with them. I think I need about 10 more on my wrist.

You will need:
1. Nail Polish
2. Gold Bracelets or Gold Chain HOW TO PAINT METAL JADERBOMB I am using Covergirl outlast stay brilliant nail polish. I am in love with all of their colors and they fit perfectly with my smile!

If you want to purchase all of the colors from one spot make sure to click my affiliate links below! The colors I am using in this post are:
1. Mint Mojito 285
2. Snow Storm 110
3. Go-Go Mango 245
4. Salt Water Taffy (not sure of number) FINGERNAIL POLISHED JEWELERY

COVERGIRL NAIL POLISH DIY

15 gold diy's Step 1:  Lay out your gold bracelet on a clean surface and coat one side with nail polish. painting gold bracelts Move on to the next one and remember to coat one side at a time. It doesn’t take too long for the polish to dry. In 10 minutes you can flip it over and do the other side. I like to do about 2 good coats  of each color. My goal is to give it a matte finish.  how to paint You can see below how it will look if you only do one side of the bracelet. Depending on the links I would decide if I wanted to do both sides on some of them.  diy bracelets One tip I have when storing bracelets is to sling them over the top of a really cool jar. You can find these at garage sales or vintage stores. Plus it looks really pretty.  EASY KIDS CRAFTS
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and you tell all of your friends about it…. NOW GO COLOR BLOCK! EASY COLOR BLOCKED JEWELERY

Happy Tuesday Jaderbugs today we will be making a paper bead bracelet.The big suprise will be at the bottom of this post so make sure you read till you get to the end. This month’s box of goodies was a little different than normal. If you are not familiar with the #12monthsofmartha let me tell ya. Each month Martha (well maybe it’s not exactly her but I will pretend it is) sends me a box of goodies for me to review and share on the blog. I also make something fascinating with the goodies. This month she sent her new book. Read more about it here.

Martha Stewart’s Favorite Crafts for Kids: 175 Projects for Kids of All Ages to Create, Build, Design, Explore, and Share

I had to re-create a craft in the book so I chose the paper bead necklace except I made a Paper Bead Bracelet instead. I will admit right away that making jewelry is not the one thing I am really good at. You know the fancy kind, with beads and clasps and all those little things involved. I will shock you now and say that today’s tutorial was FUN and EASY. Did I mention “wearable”.

Martha, if you are reading this… YOU ROCK
{{ok, this is asking a lot but if you do read this just shoot me a comment and let me know what you think or just text me, hehe}}

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”
― Coco Chanel

I am so pleased with the outcome!

diy-paper-bead-bracelet

This is the cover of the book and the bracelet I re-created. Let’s get started!

you will need

 paper trimmer|mod podge|decorative paper|toothpicks|elastic string|pencil

//P.S. You can purchase all of the items I used by clicking on the above links. These are affiliate links so if you click and buy you will help feed me more eggs and grits! Just saying, it’s my favorite.

diy-paper-bead-bracelet

Some of the items I used you might have already so take advantage of that. Oh, I used decorative paper to make my beads but another alternative is using magazine pages. I actually started one and can’t wait to show you.

diy-paper-bead-bracelet

The first thing you will do is take a sheet of decorative paper and place it on top of another one. Use the edge of the one on to to draw your lines, or you can use a ruler. You will be drawing triangles and the bigger the triangle the bigger the bead. Keep that in mind. I like to make around 5 different sizes so it’s a little more unique.

265

This is what the lines will look like on the paper. Depending on the paper some lines may appear lighter or darker.

diy-paper-bead-bracelet

Once you draw your lines then you can cut them. If you don’t have a paper cutter you can use scissors.

diy-paper-bead-bracelet

Your triangles should look like this. Unless you have a shaky hand, haha! Which is why I don’t use scissors to get a strait line!

diy-paper-bead-bracelet

1. Grab a toothpick and place the paper on the bottom of it.
2. Start wrapping the paper around the toothpick.
3. This is what your paper bead should look like once it’s all rolled.

diy-paper-bead-bracelet

Mod Podge the end so it all stays together.  You can even coat the entire bead with mod podge to make sure it is all secure.

diy-paper-bead-bracelet

Your bead should look like this when you are done. As soon as the mod podge is applied take the bead off of the toothpick. You don’t want to leave it because it could dry on the toothpick and we surely don’t want that!

diy-paper-bead-bracelet

diy-paper-bead-bracelet

Start stringing your beads with the elastic string. The good thing about this is you can put as many beads as you want!

Now onto the BIG news! I am giving away a copy of the book. WAHOO!

I am so excited to share with you my latest post for the I Love to Create Blog.  How to make Bohemian Garden Flags. {Get the link at the bottom of post}

Long hair is considered bohemian, which may be why I grew it, but I keep it long because I love the way it feels, part cloak, part fan, part mane, part security blanket” Marge Piercy 

BOHEMIAN GARDEN FLAGS

How to Make Bohemian Flags Jaderbomb

How to Make Bohemian Flags Jaderbomb

I get asked a lot how do I create things or come up with fun new ideas that are not all over Pinterest. Well the thing is I have a rule that I made with myself long before Pinterest came around. I promised that I would always stay true to the things that make me extremely happy. That I would not copy anyone’s special ideas that they create because after all I  have so many in my own head I really need to focus on getting them all out! ((teehee))

I promised that I would not ever compare my blog to anyone else’s {trust me this can be hard at times} because that is them and this is me. Sometimes I get inspired by other’s but you have to focus on YOU and that is when TRUE content will come out. Sometimes it’s not all about how “pretty” your blog looks but how great the CONTENT is.

I will always create things with BOLD bright colors. If something feels fun and MAGICAL when I am creating it then I know I am doing the right thing. What do I do when I have a creative block? I just close my eyes and trust my intuition. I follow my heart and pretend I am making a gift for ME. I trust this unexpected blogging life that the Universe created for me and go for it. When I look at something I create and feel happy inside then I know YOU will too.

I hope everyone has a MAGICAL day!
