I Think It Looks Like a Corsage...

....and ain't it cute?!

My friend Angie bought some grungeboard and I had some grungepaper so we traded. She also told that she had seen a tutorial on how to make a bracelet out of grungeboard. Of course I had to google that and see if I could make my own version.

The flower is from the Forever Young cartridge and it's out made out of grungepaper, distressed with Distress Ink in Worn Lipstick and Black Soot. I put a silver brad in the middle and hot glued the flower to a strip of grungeboard that I pained with black acrylic paint. I used a velcro dot to secure it since that's what I had on hand, but yesterday I found snaps in the craft department at Walmart and they worked great on another bracelet I'm working on.


  1. I'd wear it!!
    How much smaller is each flower than the other?

  2. Umm..."a little"? LOL. Sorry, I used my gypsy so I'm not really sure....

    I can't remember if you have a gypsy? If you do, I'll email you the .gypsy file.

  3. This is very cool! I am in love with grunge board right now and trying to get my hands on some grunge paper.
