Washer robot...

Hello ladies and gents! I have a fun new project for you today...it's my turn to post here on Paperworks Co. and I thought I would wonder off the card scrapbook page for a hot minute...so I made a bracelet instead!

I used a giant washer from the hardware store and added some designer paper to it (This one is called Simple pleasures and it's by Three Bugs in a Rug) Once I sanded around the edge with sand paper I then used a precision file set by Bagis Grey to file the inside...you can also use a circle punch that fits, but i choose this, it's easier for me since I don't have a bunch of punches!

I then stamped the Jam Tinheart robot image from the Tinheart Family collection and used some leather cord and looped it through and tied in a knot, I will get a clasp, but the ones I had at home did not fit so I'll have to get some bigger clasps at the bead shop here in town.

Now if you wanted to get the paper to be more protected I recommend adding crystal effect or a two part epoxi over the image...I will probably br adding some crytal effects but I needed more time for it to dry before adding the leather and wanted to get it photo'd to show you all!

Thanks so much for looking and I hope you like my off the paper project! If you make one of these please leave a comment, I would love to see what you all come up with!
