Jewelry Charms using Epiphany Crafts Square 25 Tool

I love to make jewelry pieces using the Epiphany Crafts Charms and today I want to share an idea for creating these beautiful jewelry charms using the Square 25 tool.
Start by punching out two squares of white cardstock using the Epiphany Crafts Square 25 Tool and set aside. Pull out 2 or 3 colors of your favorite spray mists. I love the shimmer and bright colors of Heidi Sawpp's Color Shine mists and chose to use those for my project. Add a few drops of each of your colors onto a craft mat. You can leave them as individual drops or blend them together for different looks.

Get the squares of cardstock you punched earlier and drop them into the mist. Wait until the edges of the cardstock have absorbed the mist before pulling the cardstock off the mat.

Use tweezers to remove the cardstock from the mist to reveal the beautiful pattern the mists created.

Allow the cardstock pieces to dry or use your heat tool to speed up the process. Add a Square 25 Bubble Cap to the top of each of the cardstock pieces and adhere to Square 25 Charm Settings.

You can add the charms to necklace chains, bracelets, keychains, etc. for a beautiful gift.

You can make gifts boxes using a Silhouette or other die cut machine and add a coordinating closure using the Round 14 Tool, Bubble Caps, Brad Settings, and Basic Grey Magnetic Snaps.

These are SO gorgeous. It looks easier than I thought it would be, but the results are so professional. Great idea to get that watercolour look. Thanks!
