Sparkle Medium is so adaptable - even for Bags and Jewellery

Felt Bag and Earrings using "Imagination Crafts" products.

This useful little bag was made from one piece of A4 White Felt. I used the Butterfly Stencil and Black Sparkle Medium to create the design.

Sparkle Medium works with lots of medium bases even Felt and Funky Foam (which the Earrings are made from).  Click here to see the fabby colours of Sparkle Medium in the Imagination Craft online shop.

Once the Sparkle Medium was dry I then folded the felt into 3 with the top third acting as the fold over section. I then stitched up both sides, added a button and ribbon to fasten and added white pearl adhesive stones to finish.

The Earrings were made using Black Sparkle Medium on Funky Foam this time.  Stencil the Butterflies so that you have 4 the same size, let them dry then cut them out. (You need 4 so that you can stick 2 back to back to create your Butterfliy Earrings)

3 Gold Eye pins were used onto which I added one gold bead. Pull up 2 of the Eye Pins to form antennae then the other middle one acts as the bit to fasten the chain to with a jump ring. I stuck 2 Butterflies back to back over the 3 Eyepins leaving the bead at the top then at the bottom of the Butterfly add another gold bead through all three Eyepins then turn a loop to finish.

An Earring Wire was added to the top of the chain and adhesive stones to embellish the body - hey presto - you have a pair of sparkly earrings (and a bag to keep them in)..... More creations on the Imagination Crafts blog to inspire you - click here to take a look.
