Hi everyone! Maggi here to introduce this month’s guest designer, Miae Rowe! Miae got her hands on our Dia de los Muertos Kit before anyone else and I cannot wait to show you what she created with it! Here’s her first project:
Hi everyone! So normally I’m a scrapbooker by “trade” but working with the Dia de los Muertos kit definitely expanded my crafting horizon. I took one look at that awesome Day of the Dead background stamp and the very cool stone skull beads and thought….jewelry!
The first thing I did was stamp the Day of the Dead background stamp onto some shrinky dink plastic using Stazon ink. I colored in the flowers on the skulls using Sharpie markers.
Next I cut the image into quarters and rounded the edges. The whole stamped image, even when shrunk, would’ve been a bit too large for my liking but that’s just personal preference! Oh and don’t forget to punch a hole before shrinking the plastic.
After shrinking, I had myself a nifty collection of rectangle chips with these fun images! I planned to save some extra for other projects down the road…
I went to the local beading store and schooled myself on how to attach the ensemble together and this is what I came up with! Aren’t they cute?
