Blog Swap with Curds and Whey {{Button Covered Rings}}

I’m swapping blogs today with Curds and Whey!  I {heart} Holly and her blog full of super creative projects!  I am over at her place today, so head on over and check it out!  But first, here’s Holly….


Hi Sweet Peas and BB readers. It's Holly from Curds and Whey and I am so thrilled to be posting over at this wonderful blog. These girls have such great ideas.

First I want to apologize for my pictures.  My camera is having some serious issues.  Anyway, today I'm going to show you how to make super cute and easy jewelry. I came up with this idea for my daughters birthday party. She is going to have a pirate party so I thought it would be so fun to do these rings as part of there goody bag.

Items Needed For Project:

Fabric with a small design

7/8 inch craft cover button kit

Ring with pad

Industrial strength adhesive like E-6000

Mod Podge (optional)

First you are going to lay your fabric out and take the clear template and trace the outside of it onto your fabric.  The inside circle is what will show on the ring.
Now cut it out and stick the fabric over the mold with wrong side up.  Now push your button shell into the mold.
Next fold all of your left over fabric down and put a back over it.  Take the pusher tool and push the back down until it snaps into place.
Now remove the button cover from the mold.  This is where you need to decide if you want Mod Podge on it.  I used Mod Podge on mine because I wanted it a little shiny.  After the Mod Podge is dry take your E-6000 and drop a little on the pad of the ring.  Stick the button cover on and let dry for at least 12 hours.
I also decided to make a few hair pins that match.  They turned out super cute.
Now go make some for you and your little girly.
