Resin Marble Magnet

Create these magnets using marbles, embellishments, resin and magnets!


UV Lamp
Flat Marbles
Alcohol Inks
Papers, printed acetate sheets etc...

When using Resin, you always want to work in layers, curing each layer as you go.

Place a drop of resin onto the back of the marble and then cut out an image from the acetate (we used a rose image). Cure the resin under the UV Lamp to seal it in place. You can cut out more images and layer them at this time if you wish. You can even use glitter by just sprinkling a tiny bit onto the resin while it is still wet, and cure it under the UV Lamp. Once you have the look you want, put a few drops of resin onto the marble and use a toothpick to mix in some alcohol ink (Only about half a drop though!) You can use any color and even mix colors to get exactly what you want! Once you are happy with the look, cure it under the UV Lamp for about 2-3 Minutes. Once it is done, use E-6000 to glue the magnet onto the back! We also used a cut out from paper and cured it with resin onto the back of the other marble before using the acetate images and alcohol inks.
Check out next week's blog to see how to make this magnetic frame!

Thanks for looking and CRAFT ON!!!

Flower Doll

Aloha Crafters,

With girls day coming up, todays Idea and Inspiration comes to you in the form of a little beaded flower doll.

Isn't she cute? You can do this craft with a little girl you know, or make it as a gift! Not only can you wear her as a necklace, but you could also put her on a key chain!


-Acrylic Floral beads (these can be either from the bead soup, or you can get a pack of them. 30122133)
-Seed beads in your choice of corresponding colors
-12mm white pearls or 16mm wooden beads (77938480)
-5 eye pins(30095601)
-Flower petals
-Sharpie or deco color pens
-Hot glue gun
-Wire utter
-Round nose plier
-Chain or key ring


1. Use the hot glue to adhere the loose flower petal onto a round bead. This will become our body
2. Take your first eye pin and string your body through
3. Take 2 eye pins and string on top of body, and glue. These will be our arms
4. Take your wooden bead or pearl and place at the top. This will be our head.
5. Take flower bead of your choice and place on top of your dolls head. 
6. Trim down the top of the eye pin and make a loop with your round nose pliers.
7. Attach the last 2 eye pins to the bottom of the doll. These will be our legs.
8. Place seed beads on arms and legs to desired length. Trim and round out wire and you're done!

RTD Wood Jewelry Holder

Create this cute RTD Wood Jewelry Holder by using any acrylic paint. 

RTD Wood Jewelry Holder
Acrylic paint brush set
Foam brush

Paint the inside of the cabinet a solid color (I used a turquoise blue). You can unscrew the hooks if you would like to get a nice even paint job. Once the inside is dry, screw them back in. You are going to want to give it two coats of paint. Paint the outside with black acrylic paint, make sure to give it two coats. use the same color as you used for the inside to paint designs on the sides. I did simple paisleys and swirls! Customize it with stickers, glitter and even Deco pens!

 Thanks for looking and CRAFT ON!!!!!!
