Glazed Washers

Okay, I have to say when I saw this week’s 3D Tuesday Challenge, I was a bit skeptical.  I dunno if mine will turn out, but I had most all the supplies, so why not give it a go.

After working on it, I have to say, I LOVED THIS challenge!  Paper Craft Planet’s 3D68, “Washed Away” challenge from Silvia was so much fun!  I am a bit of an impatient person, so waiting for the glue to dry was difficult for me.  I followed the directions pretty closely, except instead of glueing the paper to the washer & then waiting, I just used the diamond glaze to glue the paper to the washer & then the glaze on top at the same time.

I cut my patterned paper with 2 round nestabilities that best matched the washer (easy-peasy!), so really, like I said the hardest part of this craft was WAITING a day for the diamond glaze to dry.  You can see my washer balanced on an empty thread bobbin here …

But look how it turns out!

Now, I must admit, I didn’t have ALL of the supplies.  I didn’t have a clasp, so I just made a slip knot in the leather cording.  I like it like that too, because it’s adjustable.  Just tie two knots and then it slides, but because of the leather, it holds in place.

Don’t forget to trim the ends.

Thanks, Silvia for all the links over at Paper Craft Planet’s 3D Tuesday group.
