Nothing thrills me quite like seeing other people's craft results from using my tutorials or suggestions. Seriously. I get all giddy and stuff. So I thought it might be fun to take a quick skip down memory lane and show you which Epbot crafts your fellow readers are making - and maybe inspire you to get crafting, too!
Let's start with my most popular tutorial by far (thanks, Pinterest!): my flip-flop hangers.
Meghan H. made this chic version for her own closet, and she even dressed up the rod bracket with some pretty paper!
I've heard from other readers who made whole sets of these for holiday gifts, but so far I *think* Meghan is the only one to send me a photo. So if you guys have tried this, you know what to do.
Probably my second most popular tutorial is our penny desk:
(Pro Tip: You could also have a sheet of tempered glass cut to fit over your desktop, Amanda, to get the same smooth surface as epoxy without the mess/effort!)
Here's a more recent craft: Christina used my bubble wrap earrings & bracelet tutorials to make a bracelet that's way cuter than mine. And I may never forgive her.
She used the same technique I did for these earrings:
And strung her bubble-wrap charms together with O-rings like I did on my bracelet:
Here's another oldie-but-goodie: anyone remember my Halloween candy jewelry?
Well, Jeri Lynn used my instructions to make this gorgeous candy corn bracelet:
This makes me want to revisit my candy-dipped-in-epoxy crafts. I still have a box of hard rainbow candies from the Japanese pavilion in Epcot that I want to experiment with. [rubbing hands together] Ohhh yessss...it shall be glorious...
I'm less than half-way through the tutorial photos I want to show you guys, but since this is getting kind of long I'll post the second batch in another few days. I'd love to make this a regular thing, too, so if you have project photos inspired by any of my crafts and tutorials, then please, send 'em in!
Oh, and a quick word on watermarks: I'm a big fan of crediting original sources, so if the photos you send me are NOT posted anywhere else online, then unless you instruct me otherwise I plan to watermark them so people can track down the source. (That source being you.)
If your photo *is* posted somewhere else online, like on your blog or Flickr account, then please let me know so I can link to it & credit you properly. I never want to be seen as taking credit for anyone else's work, so I just wanted to explain my reasoning - and again, just say the word if you don't want an Epbot watermark on your photo, and I'll take it off immediately.
Stay tuned for the next batch! I've got some Ollivander's wand displays, steampunk medals, and other assorted goodies that're gonna knock your socks off.
