I've got some more Easter Creative Scraps to share today, and, there are still images left on my sheet! Man, these sheets are jam packed full of vintage images, I've been having a blast with them! This time I made some soldered Easter ornaments. I cut my images from the sheet and soldered my ornaments added some pink ribbon and a couple of beads, done! The one on the left is a double ornament, the smaller one is hanging from the larger top one.
I learned to solder last year at Tex's house, several of us were there and when we did the soldering, there were a few choice words being said, LOL!! After the 2nd or 3rd time trying it, it's easy and fun! I think we have all gotten better at it, LOL!
Isn't this rabbit in the hat with the bird nest and eggs sweet?! It really caught my eye!
I added a couple of beads to the bottom of this one and some Prima's inside under the glass.

Supplies: Paper - Crafty Secrets Easter Creative Scraps, pink foil scrap. Acces. - pink ribbon,
beads, Prima flowers, copper tape, 2x2 & 1 1/2x1 1/2 Memory Glass pieces by Ranger, solder, flux, jump rings. Tools - soldering iron, Jewelers Extra Hands.
I hope your Monday is wonderful, remember, just 4 more days till Friday Ü
Thanks for stopping by!
