Here is the one I made this week. I wanted to add a little Asian Pizzaz to my wall fixture.
I painted the switch cover gold and traced the front side down onto designer paper. ( I used Modge Podge to glue it down and give it a sheen that looks like it's part of the plastic).
I used Martha Stewart's Specialty Finish on the Gold.
This is a detail of the stickpins I added down the center.
Another look at the lovely beads I received from my stickpin swap buddy Evelyn.
I blinged up some Chinese Coins I received from Gail as a fun little gift. I so enjoy incorporating embellishments from our talented crafters on the Cricut Boards. (Sorry Michael's, but you gotta admit, these are a little less commercial and have a whole lot more soul)
I included a Tim Holtz clasp on the lower right side. I tucked the chain under the coin as I hot glued them down together.
This would be a could place to add a Cricut die cut or Cuttlebugged imagel The chain hangs down away from the switch, and shouldn't see much action. I am going to leave it plain for now, as it is pretty blinged up and my muse is telling me to stop. Maybe your muse will say, "Go for It".
If you have any questions, leave one in the comment section, and I will answer there. Love hearing from my fellow/lady crafters.
