Day 1 of the I Heart Mesh Bling Series!

Hi all!  Happy Heart Day! :)

Day 1 of the I Heart Mesh Bling Series starts today!  So, I was planning on a video series, but my video camera died...  I am still frustrated, but hey, I got pics for y'all :)

I made a choker necklace using items from Karlas001 Etsy Store (list of items and links below):

Karlas001 Etsy Store: 3D Butterflykisses Crystal Flower
Karlas001 Etsy Store: Cynthialoowho Onyx Black Mesh (new item!!) 5 rows wide by 7" long
1" wide by 3' long seam binding
White organza material cut into flowers (I used TH Tattered Florals Die)
Black 1" circle for the back of the flower (I used paper, you can also use felt)
Glue gun

- I first cut 6 layers of organza and layered all but the smallest flowers using my glue gun (you can also use a fabric glue if you wish)
- I then centered and glued the Onyx Black Mesh to the seam binding (be careful not to burn yourself with the glue gun!)
- I glued the flower to one end of the length of mesh bling (this way, when I am wearing the choker, the flower is to the side...)
- Done!

Visit these sites for great product and the latest in crafting awesomeness!  Like the FB page for great pics on how other crafters use Karlas001 products.

I hope to either post or take a vid of Day 2 of this series... Stay tuned!!

Pssst!  I am a featured Guest Designer for Karlas001 Esty Store for March and April!
