It’s been a while since I’ve done a craft from Martha Stewart’s Handmade Holiday Crafts; I got so sick over the holidays, and then New Year was kind of rough. But the great thing is that Martha’s book got me back into the crafting mojo for Valentine’s Day! Sometimes that’s the nice thing about crafting along with a book – following the steps gets you back into the swing of things. I’m totally jazzed for 2012.
When I first say the love knot bracelet project I thought it was very cute – and it looks really easy. I wanted something easy to get me going. I also thought that when I made it and wore it, it wasn’t going to stay on and that it would be more like a little kid’s bracelet (which I didn’t mind). I couldn’t have been more wrong. It was fun to make, looks really cute and stays on beautifully! I want to make more in a variety of colors. Do you want to see more about the project (and Martha’s version)? Click through the jump!
So after going through the project steps, there’s just a few things that I would change. After gluing the image to the cookie cutter, I would let it dry and then go around the edge again with another strip of glue to secure it throughly. I would also poke a hole in the image before gluing it down. Do you want to know what I’m talking about? Take a peek at the steps below.
