Spellbinders A Gilded Life
Summer Showcase and Giveaway
Day 3

Relic Prize Ribbon

I am so excited to be sharing this project with you using Spellbinders A Gilded Life products.  I love this line they have designed....romantic, elegant, and vintage all rolled into one.  It's been an honor to be included in this great team of designers!  Hope you enjoy the project!






Spellbinders A Gilded Life Supplies
MMM-001 Artisan X-plorer Machine (not included in giveaway)  ( Found Here)
GLLD-002 Imperial Border Long Die (Found Here)
GLLD-007 Vintage Brocade Long Die (Found Here)
Relics B Relic Charms (Found Here)
GL2-002 Crowned Medallion ( Found Here)
Other Supplies
Vintaj Metal Paint - I used Quartz
1/4 yard velvet
2 yards - 3" wide lace
2 yards - seam binding
Fringe Lace
1 yard - 1/4" wide lace
Fabric Glue
Rhinestones for Crown
Jewelry Adhesive
Extra Fine Jewelry Sandpaper
Jewelry Cutters
Novacan Black Patina


First off, remove the loops on Crowned Medallion and the Relic piece.  Lightly sand the Crowned Medallion.  Now paint it with the Vintaj Metal Paint.  Let dry and apply and re-coat.  Once dry sand again for aged effect.  Mix a small amount of black patina and water and antique the Crowned Medallion.  Dry completely.  Using your jewelry adhesive, glue the Relic piece onto the Crowned Medallion  and the small rhinestones to the Relic.  Let dry.



Using your Spellbinders Artisan X-plorer cut out your pieces with the velvet fabric.  You will need to cut 6 pieces with the Vintage Brocade Long Die and 2 pieces with the Imperial Border Long Die.  Using the 3" wide lace cut 5 pieces 6" long and 1 piece 24" long.  Using the Vintage Brocade pieces, cut 5 pieces to 5" long.  Weave the 1/4"wide lace in between the slots in the Imperial Border pieces.  Tack on the ends with fabric glue.  Cut your seam binding into random lengths of your desire.  





When making your rosette, fold your lace pieces in half and make a running stitch on the open ends and join together.  Repeat for the velvet pieces.  Using fringe lace, gather the top edge and tie together.  Layer all 3 pieces together and stitch to attach.
Layer the ribbon sections together in the order pictured above.  Attach the rosette to the center.  Mine is stitched but it can be glued with fabric adhesive.  Tie assorted Relic charms to the seam binding.

Using the Crowned Medallion, attach it with thread to your ribbon.  


Using a paper scrap, cut out a circle to cover your stitches on the back of the ribbon.

You will have 48 hours to enter to win the Spellbinders A Gilded Life products.
