Good morning, everyone! Well, I’ve finally made it to Phoenix for Creativation 2017, but the ButterBeeScraps show must go on…I told you that I would not be doing a tutorial for you this week; however, was feeling rather guilty about that. Although I didn’t spend any time in my studio preparing something for you this week, I did want to share a pretty in-depth tutorial series I created a while back that I thought would be totally worth pointing out…one on making charms 🙂
Now, I know a lot of peeps out there get pretty intimidated at the thought of creating a charm for the spine of your mini album, journal, daily planner, or even your backpack. Don’t be! I created a series of videos that will take you right from what tools you need, to how to make the perfect loop, right up to assembling a chunky charm 🙂
I will warn you…the video quality isn’t as good as my videos nowadays, but the info is pretty great, and at the time I created the videos, I hadn’t seen anyone else do as comprehensive of a tutorial as this…and that is exactly why I created this series. So…let’s get to it!
This video is intended for those of you who have never picked up a pair of pliers…I walk you through all the tools and materials you’ll need to create your very own chunky charm.
In this video, I show you all the ins-and-outs of how to create the perfect loop 🙂
In Video #3, I’ll walk you through how to make beaded baubles…I’ll even show you how to string more than one together 🙂
This is the last video in the series. We will take all those little charms and baubles we created in Video #3 and put them all together to make one pretty chunky charm.
Well, that about does it for this week’s pseudo-tutorial. For your convenience, I have grouped these videos together in a single play list on YouTube that you can find right HERE. I hope you give charm making a try…you’ll be making the perfect loop in no time flat 🙂 Cheers!
