Altered Bezel Bracelet

Hi everyone! This is Elizabeth from 217 Creations! Today I am sharing an easy gift idea!. You are going to be surprised how easy it was.
I used red line tape or Terrifically Tack Tape, Judi Kins DG3 Art Gel, an empty bezel bracelet from Hobby Lobby, small patterned papers, and sharp scissors. I made two of these bracelets as gifts.
 I started by using these smaller patterned papers from Graphic 45.  Using a pattern with a square or rectangle makes it easy to cut for the bezels.
 I found the bezels are not consistent in size so I had to trim and retrim a few times.  But once I got the hang of it it went fast.  After trimming, I placed a small strip of red line tape on the back of the paper square.  I pressed it into the bezel.
Then using Judy Kins DG3 Art Gel, I filled each well.
Here is the vintage fruit bracelet.
This is the fairy bracelet.
It does take overnight for the gel to dry, depending on humidity. It was a bit hard to photograph through the shine on the gel once it was dried.  This gel is easier than most epoxy kits and it can be layered between drying times.  As always thank you for taking the time to comment and following us here at She's A Sassy Lady and on my personal blog at 217 Creations!
