Here is what you need:
|Oops! I forgot to picture the tube of Rub'n Buff. You can see a picture below.|
Brown paper bags, metal barrettes, a candle, Aleene's Tacky Glue and Rub'n Buff metallic finish paste.
Cut pieces of a heavy, brown paper bag out in the desired size. . Glue them together (printed sides in). Allow them to dry over night. I tried a large section with the tacky glue and it warped. Then I used a glue stick and did a piece the size shown. It wrinkled a little, but not bad.
In order the may the barrette more durable, I recommend making a piece that is 4 layers thick. I would do one piece, let it dry, then cut it and glue that together.
Cut the desired shape based on the size of the barrette. Make sure you cut it long enough to extend slightly beyond the barrette.
It looks pretty cool right now, huh? But wait, there's more!
Let it dry overnight. Then...
|This is really 100x too much paste. You could just touch the tip with your cloth.|
Use a glue gun to attach it to the barrette.
Done! I really liked this craft. It is easy and inexpensive. I think you will be seeing more of it in the coming weeks!
