Easy How Tos: Beaded Jelly Jar Tealight Candle Lantern, Fridge Magnets, and Remember Mama!

We've been dreaming of spring for awhile here at Rubber Nation Crafts! Our friend and co-worker Anne has been busy creating some wonderful inspired projects for spring. Here's a recent favorite of ours!
Beaded Jelly Jar Tealight Candle Lantern
These are perfect for spring or summer events - plus they're GREEN - using recycled clear jars that you already have on hand in your recycle bin. This design could be made up in our glass pearls for outdoor weddings - just add a little tealight, maybe a little sand in the bottom and hang. Send us your ideas!
Remember Mama!
It's that time of year again - graduations, Mother's Day, weddings ~ we've got some very easy ways to give your gifts a thoughtful touch with ourpersonalized keyrings, photo bracelets or photo charms.
Each of our photo jewelry items comes with a simple instruction sheet.  We even have photo key chains for kids!
Our ready-to wear photo bracelets have been customer favorites for many years now for MANY reasons! Mainly, they're well-made and VERY easy to use. They're ready-to-wear - lead and nickel-free silver plated solid metal alloy - all you need to do is pop in 6 of your index prints or cropped photos under the acetate sheets in each frame - The only supplies you need for this project are a pair of scissors! Voila! Your gift is done! Now that's EASY!
Lip Balm for Photo and Altered Art Jewelry!
You might not realize it just yet, but the lowly lip balm stick at your neighborhood drugstore IS your favorite new craft supply!
To prevent your ink jet print outs from running before you apply your clear sealer (we think 3D Crystal Lacquer works best), just spread a very thin layer of generic lip balm (the simpler, the better) across your art work and allow it to air dry a few minutes. Then continue with your glaze layer. The lip balm forms enough of a water-resistant barrier to protect your art, but still allows the sealer to do it's job. Try it! It's a life changer for altered and photo jewelry artists!
