a charming housewarming gift

Hi friends,

Today I have some fun projects to share with you from Epiphany Crafts. Over on the EC blog we teamed up with DCWV and Blue Moon Beads all week. Here is what I came up with for the cross promotion.
This charming teapot is perfect for spring and sure to make a great housewarming gift.

Flowerpot with chalkboard plant markers







Tip: I used embossing powder to change the color of my metal settings.

Epiphany Crafts Supplies:
Epiphany Crafts star 25 shape studio tool, star 25 bubblecaps

Other Supplies:

DCWV dots, plaids and stripes stack
EK success: zig zag border punch, swiss cheese border punch
Die cutting machine: Slice just chillin’ teen card
adhesive: Scotch (ATG), liquid: Helmar’s quick dry 450
other: string, jump rings

Technique:

Did you know that you can pierce through your Epiphany Crafts Bubblecaps to make cute hanging charms? It’s simple, I just take a paper piercer and poke a hole through my bubblecap.
The epoxies are flexible so a standard paper piercer should push right through without any troubles just be sure to not pierce to close to the edge, or the epoxy might tear.

For my next step I attached standard jump rings that I picked up at my local craft supply store and hung my star bubblecaps from string.
