Scrap Box Sunday + Link Party! ~ Rosette Ring

I'll admit it, I'm a hoarder!
Just look at my scrap fabric drawer!


There are some bits in there that are less than an inch big, but I love the fabric so much I can't bear to part with them. Oh dear!

Anyway, I figure that I'm not the only one with this problem! So here's the first entry for Scrap Box Sunday! I'm even hosting a link party so you can link up your scrap box creations as well! Sound like fun?? I think so!

To kick things off, today I'll show you how I made a Super Easy Rosette Ring!


You will need:
* A long rectangular strip of fabric from your scrap drawer!
* Some coordinating beads
* A ring blank
* Thread
* Super glue
* Gemstone glue

This is what I used :)

What to do:
Use you scrap fabric to make a rosette!
I made a "twisted rose" and stitched through the middle at the bottom to hold everything securely in place.



Tie one of your beads onto the end of your thread.



Thread enough beads onto the thread so that when you make a loop out of them, they fit snugly around your rosette.


Push your thread back through the first bead.


Pull the thread tight and knot it off. Trim the excess thread.


Run Gemstone glue around the bottom edge of your rosette. I like using Gemstone glue because it dries clear and has a bit of "give" when it's dry, so it's pretty forgiving!


Press your bead loop onto the glue. Push it around a bit until you're happy with how it sits, then let it dry. I try to make sure the knot on the bead loop is at the bottom, facing the middle. It'll be hidden here.


When it's dry, pop some super glue onto your ring blank.


Push your rosette/bead combo onto it and let it dry
The "let it dry" bit is pretty important otherwise you'll have a ring permanently attached to your finger.
Awkward!


Viola! You have a pretty ring made from scraps lying around your craft room!


OK, now it's YOUR turn!

Link up anything that you've made with scraps lying around your craft room! It doesn't have to be fabric scraps, it could be paper, ribbon, beads anything crafty! You've got until Thursday! 

Just display H&H's button somewhere on the post or in your sidebar, and link up!



I can't wait to see what you talented people come up with!
