Welcome!!! If you visit the blog often, and I know you do, you are
well aware of the fun partnership for the month of July between
My project that I have for you is a cute little bottle cap wind chime.
The really exciting thing about this project is that it will soon be offered as a kit from AlteredPages.com. So, check the site in a week or two and you can have everything you need, including detailed instructions, to make your very own chime shipped right to your front door.
This idea came to me when I saw the sweet little
Barn Swallow from The Leaky Shed. They gave our AlteredPages Creative Team such fun chipboard to play with.
Pretty cool job this is, I tell ya!
The next few pictures document the supplies & tools I used.
Don't you just love my little helper?!
Gabby sure did a great job punching bottle caps for me.
I had to show you a close up of this one.
Between the artsy cap designs and the fun inclusions
the thumb numbing punch work was well worth it.
You can also see that I added big, chunky beads and crystals for
sun catching fun once hung outside.
Here is my cute little barn swallow painted turquoise.
