Water Bottle Charms

One of my roommates at Seminar this year, Becky Johns, had made these for trades. I thought they were just too cute and here, in southern AZ, you see people with water bottles everywhere! So, I hope to get a whole bunch of these made to sell.

Here you can see a couple on the bottle. I used small black hair binders, jump rings, and shrink plastic for the basic materials. I punched out the shrink plastic using my Giga Scallop Circle Punch then stamped with Sprigs using Noir Palette Hybrid ink. I let the ink dry for at least 1/2 hour. I colored the flowers/leaves/buds with Sharpie markers and let dry again. Then I sponged White Cloud VersaMagic ink down the middle over the top of the sprig then sponged different colors of P.H. ink on the sides. After drying I punched a 1/8" hole for the jump ring then shrunk. I then attached the hair binder to the charm with the jump ring.

Now, aren't these just cute!! I did make some more using the Fore! set and my Scallop Oval punch.

Now, what are you creating??
