Crafting a Bib Necklace Bo Bunny Style!

Jewelry making is spreading into scrappy land and for many crafters and scrapbookers alike this is great way to use up our stash of goodies. Imagine taking some of your favorite handmade or pre-made flowers, brads, ribbon and bling and turning them into a stylish fashion accessory! One thing to keep in mind is that because you are the making it, you can perfectly coordinate your jewelry to go with your favorite outfits. Another thoughtful use for creating one of these beauties is that it would make the perfect gift for your best fashionista friends! So are you beginning to think that this sounds like something you might want to try? If so, keep on reading for a detailed how-to tutorial on creating your own bib necklace using some of your favorite scrappy supplies. Before we start with the instructions though, I want to share with you one of the necklaces I created with yours truly as the model! LOL!!!
I took my time creating the base for the necklace so that the length of the necklace could be adjusted depending on the style of top I was wearing. Please let me know if you are interested in having the pattern I created. I would be more than happy to share it with you!

..................................................................................................
Supplies:
Various Bo Bunny flowers, brads and bling
Ribbon
Hot glue gun
Felt


Instructions:

Cut a piece of felt into a bib type shape.
Gather some flowers and brads
and put your flowers together.
Continue building your flowers, varying the colors and sizes of the flowers to add variety.Cut 2 pieces of ribbon approximately 15 inches in length.
Hot glue the ends of each piece of ribbon onto each end of the felt piece.
Gather some bling
and hot glue your bling on the tip of the felt bib.
(This helps hide the end piece.)
Next start hot gluing your flowers in place.
Once all of the flowers are adhered you are ready to wear your creation!

So what do you think? Easy peesy right?! So get crafting and please share your creations with us! We can't wait to see them!

Happy Crafting!
