Materials:

  • Julianna Hudgins Spellbinders Dies (available at your local scrapbook, craft and hobby stores. Visit www.spellbinderspaperarts.com for store locations): LF-013 Jewel Goddess, S5-097 Jewel Treasures, S5-098 Jewel Stones
  • Soda cans
  • Craft knife
  • Scissors (I use dollar store scissors to cut soda cans)
  • Jacquard Pinata Alcohol Inks (colors of your choice)
  • Jacquard Extender
  • Cosmetic sponge(s) (I cut each sponge into several pieces)
  • Craft wire (colors of your choice for jump rings and hair) or purchase ready-made jump rings
  • Pencil – for wrapping to create jump rings
  • Wire cutters
  • Round nose pliers

Instructions:

  1. Select soda cans that are large enough for the small goddess die. (I used Monster Drink.) Cut the top and bottom off with a craft knife and then cut down one side with scissors to create a flat piece. To help the soda can lay flat, roll the opposite way.

  2. Keep a hold of the tightly rolled can for a few seconds and then lay it back on your work surface.

  3. Prepare the die for cutting by placing on the silver side of soda can. Next place it between the Grand Calibur cutting pads and run through machine.
