Jewelry resin is super addicting art, and you will love it! You can also make it leather jewelry by replacing it with a leather pendant.

Material needed:

  • Scrapbook Paper
  • Scissors or circle punch
  • Mod Podge or Sealer
  • Black Vinyl/Transfer Tape

Instructions:

  • Using the punch or scissors, cut a piece of paper in size inside of a bezel.
  • To cut some vinyl, use the Cricut maker of your pendant.
  • To get the vinyl monogram on the scrapbook paper, use transfer tape
  • Inside the pendant bezel, paint the Mod Podge
  • Now paint Mod Podge over the top of the paper after placing the scrapbook paper inside. Let it dry completely.
How to make the jewelry resin:
  1. The bezel doesn’t require much resin as we think. Mix in an equal amount of normal and hard resin.
  2. stir the resin for about two minutes and set it aside
  3.  Mixing this 2 phase process is crucial for the hard setting of the resin.
  4. Set the bezel on a raised surface and then fill the inside of the bezel with the mixed resin.
  5. Use a torch or heat gun to pop all the formed bubbles, and let it sit for about 5- 10 minutes.
  6.  Let it sit and harden overnight.
  7. To attach the chain to the bezel, use pliers.

The fabulous monogram necklace is ready to wear or gift or sell !!

Things needed:

  • Baby Bodysuits

  • Iron-on vinyl
  • EasyPress 2 and Mat

Instructions:

  1. Load the needed design into circuit design space as a cut file. Cut them out of iron-on vinyl and mirror them.
  2. Use the Cricut bright pad and weeding tools to remove the excess vinyl.
  3. To make weeding much easier, the bright pad is used.
  4. The Holy Guacamole image is what I have taken.
  5. The avocado shape is carefully cut using scissors.
  6. With the help of a carrier sheet, set the avocado and vinyl up.
  7. The small size would be better for a baby suit. Now, press it with Cricut easy press 2.
  8. Peel off the carrier sheets once they are cooled off.

7. Water bottle or Wine bottle:

A bottle or a wine bottle is never a bad idea to gift. Bundle it with some flowers and chocolates, and you have the perfect gift.

It doesn’t require much time and effort, yet it would brighten up someone’s day!!

Things needed:

  • Cricut maker
  • Cricut easy press 2
  • Iron-on glitter vinyl
  • Stainless steel water bottle
  • Cricut Iron-on protection sheet
  • Cricut tools
  • Fighter ribbon file

Instructions:

  1. To fit the width of your water bottle, the Cricut design space file is sized at 2.5 inches. Select it in the Fighter ribbon file.
  2. Placing the glitter iron-on vinyl upside down on the mat will ensure the pink glitter touches the mat. Next, mirror the image and select Glitter Iron-on as the cutting setting on the Maker.
  3. Ensure that the iron-on is cut before removing the mat from the Maker. Pull it out of the machine, peel the mat and vinyl away from the image, and then cut it out.
  4. If there is excess vinyl, use the weeding tool to remove it. Make sure to get inside all the loopy letters.
  5. Inspect it visually for any errors by turning it over.
  6. Putting iron-on vinyl on a metal water bottle smells fantastic. Now it is ready to adhere to the water bottle. Also, get the protective sheet ready.
  7. The EasyPress 2 heats up very rapidly.
  8. Tightly wrap the protective sheet around after placing the iron or vinyl on the water bottle.
  9. To press the EasyPress 2 on vinyl, hold the wrapped bottle and press with the other hand. The vinyl should be heated and pressed for 15 seconds on each side of the water bottle.
  10. When the vinyl is exposed, remove the protective sheet. If there are edges that need more ironing, do it now. Initially, my EasyPress 2 had been set at too low of a setting.
  11. After the vinyl has partially adhered, the EasyPress 2 can be used directly on the carrier sheet.
  12. To remove any fingerprints from the bottle, remove the carrier sheet and wipe it with rubbing alcohol.

Now it’s ready to use!
