Scrappy Jewelry à la Marion Smith, Maya Road and Amanda!

 If you watched Marion Smith on her August 5th Live With Prima, you are aware of this trend coming out of Summer CHA ~ Scrappy Jewelry!

Marion made a necklace and a brooch using Prima Marketing's gorgeous Cancan flowers.  Marion's Kit is available for pre-order at Flamingo Scraps!

I got to thinking after watching Marion.  There are a lot of gorgeous things available from Flamingo Scraps that could be used to make jewelry or hair barrettes or whatever else your imagination can imagine.  Here's a few suggestions.........

 La Fleur

Either one of these would make a gorgeous brooch for that special friend with eclectic tastes!  Just hot glue a jewelry pin to the back and you're done!  What a great Christmas gift (don't forget we're just coming off Christmas in July!).

How about making hair barrettes from these?
Again, just hot glue plain metal hair barrettes to the back of these blooms and you have three cute and useful hair barrettes.  Or use them to make a necklace like Marion did.

Moulin Rouge

Did someone say Butterfly?  The Andorra Princess comes with one bloom and one Butterfly!

Layer these Sifah Leaves under the flower for something a little different.......

These Primrose Flowers - Debbie are adorable for a little girl.  Why don't you make that special little girl a Back-to-School Barrette?

Amanda has some great ideas for jewelry using Maya Road Chandelier beads.  I will now turn this blog post over to her!

Hello!  I saw these fabulous necklaces (pictured above) a few weeks ago on the Maya Road blog... and of course, had to make my own!  And I was surprised at how quick and easy it was!!  Just grab your Maya Road Chandelier Trinket Beads, follow Jennifer's instructions.... and you will be done in a few minutes.  I just loosely traced my bead onto my paper, cut it out, punched a few butterflies to add to two of my pendants and glued it all together.

Sorry my photo isn't too great this time!

Other supplies:  glue, scissors, Martha Stewart Butterfly punch and Basic Grey Urban Prairie patterned paper scraps
The best part is that it really doesn't matter how you cut the paper -- the faceted front is forgiving and you don't have to be very accurate.  I'll be keeping one and giving the other three away as Christmas stocking stuffers!!  Up next, I think I may try some glittery paint!!  It's a great way to use these Chandelier Beads.

So we hope you have been inspired to create some fun gifts using scrappy flowers and embellishments.  Just to encourage you, Flamingo Scraps has every item mentioned in this blog post on sale until August 30th.  What are you waiting for?!  Get busy... we wanna see some jewelry!!
