Just GLUE IT! 3 Easy Bracelets made with Buttons, Scrabble Tiles, Metal Stampings Bracelets

We're bringing you three fun and different ideas for our glue-on bracelet blanks. These samples were all made with our craft-quality bracelet blanks SKU 1450

1. Steampunk Dreams Anne made this cool mixed metals steampunk style bracelet from our 1450 basic craft bracelet base and our 1152 or 1159 Fearless Crafter's Metal Stampings Mix with just a little dab of e6000 on the base and between the metal charm layers. Click photo for a closeup. This mix has so many fun options - lots of shapes and raw mixed metals to play with!

2. Button UP! Kim made this antique off-white mixed button bracelet with our same 1450 craft bracelet base and our Vintage Buttons Mix in white. She chose a trio of buttons from small to large for each landing pad and then attached them with e6000 adhesive. We also have a nice Vintage Buttons Mix in warm neutrals which would work great too. This is an great idea for kids to make for Mother's Day.

3. Say Anything 6-Tile Scrabble Bracelet   Got 6 letters? Make some wearable art! Kim used our 1410 Vintage Scrabble tile mix and our 1450 craft bracelet base along with a dab of e6000 adhesive for a nearly instant scrabble tile bracelet. Stuck for a word? Check out this link ~ tons of common 6-letter words you can use to create with! How we didn't think of CRAFTY I just don't know! :-) Blame it on the Holidaze!

New Year's Resolution Embellished Bottle Pendants
Fun and quick - using our 1200L-10pack mini bottles and our eye pins, thread our bali spacer beads 1155 on either side of our glass pearls ~ top it off with a crystal bicone to make these New Year's Resolution Keeper Bottle or embellished Message in a Bottle pendants.

Optional fill with favorite beach sand or glitter .... just do it!  Hang from our cords and chains (many styles - snake chain or organzas are especially pretty combined with these) with a simple jump ring ~ These are EASY, cute and original little treasures!
