Bella's Journey Gift Bag Instructions Designed by Cheri Carlson
This Twilight®*-inspired organza gift bag is sure to become as treasured as the things you place inside it. Use it to store your favorite keepsakes or place the Bella's Journey Bracelet* inside and give it to a friend. The beautiful charm on this gift bag can easily be removed and used as a stunning focal piece in any necklace design.
Step One: Place a protectant such as a piece of cardboard in the bag to prevent the hotfix flatbacks glue from seeping through and gluing the organza bag shut. Evenly space 11 Swarovski hotfix flatbacks in light siam across the top of a 3x4-inch black organza bag. Attach the flatbacks to the bag using a Hot Fix applicator. Let the glue dry and repeat these steps to attach the other 11 flatbacks to the other side of the bag.
Step Two: Place the Swarovski 14.4 x 14mm faceted heart pendant crystal on the 6.10mm sterling silver open jump ring. Attach this jump ring to the 9.0mm sterling silver open jump ring. For help with jump rings visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
Step Three: Thread the Swarovski 8mm faceted round dark red coral on the 1-inch head pin. Attach the head pin to left side of the heart crystal on the smaller silver jump ring using a wrapped loop. For help with wrapped loops visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Repeat these steps to attach the Swarovski 6mm faceted round light siam bead on the smaller jump ring to the right side of the heart crystal.
Step Four: Using a needle and the Silamide 40-yard card black thread, sew the small jump ring to the bag. Make sure to attach the ring at the stitching below the cinching ribbon for added security.
