Employee Workshop Projects

Last week I had the opportunity to attend workshops for employees of Ben Franklin Crafts.  It was an all day event full of learning and plentiful craft supplies.  In the photos below you can see two of the projects I made during the event.
The first one is a Beadalon mesh rose ring.  It was a unique way to use the metal jewelry mesh ribbon sold at Ben Franklin Crafts.  I believe that you can access the instructions for the ring on the Beadalon website or the disk shown can be purchased at BFC.  If you cannot find a source for the instructions perhaps Joy (Joy of Crafting) will be able to help you find them.

Another fun project was taught to us by EK Success.  I didn't think I needed any more punches but when I saw the adorable mini scallop circles; I knew I had to buy some.  The selling points for the punches were the convenient space-saving shape and clearly labeled size on the top AND side of each punch. From Ben Franklin Crafts I purchased only four sizes of scallop circle punches but I intend to eventually get all the sizes and the scallop square ones as well.  The assorted scallop circles were punched out from floral print paper and stacked together with foam dots .  They were strung on twine through two holes punched in each bottom circle.  Shiny sticker buttons were attached to the top of some of the smaller circles.  This was a very simple project which has many possibilities as embellishments for cards or gift wrapping decorations.  In posts to come I hope to show you more of the pretty crafts we created in the workshops.  I think they will inspire you to try new products and understand the creative possibilities of simple tools.

Hi Lynn,
Wow, that ring looks like 14K gold to me. Makes a nice cocktail ring. I like the strung scalloped circles too. I agree, they'd make great embellies on any paper craft project.
Have a fun and crafty weekend.
