Cabochon Rings – How To Make Your Own + Give Away!

This give away has now closed, thank you to all those who entered.

This is the second hand made gift for Christmas 2011. We are making vintage paper doll sets and to see the rest of my planning for Christmas 2011 go to:
Christmas in July 2011.

These cabochon rings are made from a kit I was given by Jackobindi – a wonderful long time sponsor of Planning With Kids! Jackobindi now has a facebook page too which has exclusive specials. They were so easy to make. My daughter and I had a lovely time making them in preparation to give to friends and family this Christmas. (The cabochons we used were the White Rose Cabochons $7.50 for $10.)

These rings look great on, a little to big for my daughter, even though they are adjustable, but perfect for me. (Yes I have kept one for myself). You can make some for you too! At the end of the post you have a chance to win a ring making kit of your very own!
