Take about 5 inches of the clear packing tape, fold over the ends and attach the tape to the cardstock so that the sticky side is facing up.
Place the heart link onto the tape. You will create a small pocket of clear space by placing a crimp bead within the link near the tip of the heart’s point. You should be able to see the cavity within the crimp bead, this is to remain clear of any resin while you are working.
Pour the resin into the middle section of the link (about the size of a pea) and spread it evenly around to the edges using the tooth pick or paper clip. Try to pop any bubbles that you find within the resin.
Place the card into the UV light for about 3-4 minutes.
Remove the card and do another layer of resin the same way as the first but sprinkle in the glitter before placing into the UV light. Again, leave in the light for about 3-4 minutes.
Next, coat one side of a leaf sequin with resin and try to avoid the small holes on base of the leaf. Use the tape on card stock method for this as well to help keep the sequin steady while working the resin on it. Repeat for 1 more leaf sequin and place into the UV light for 3-4 minutes.
Next coat the other side of the leaf sequins and place into the UV light for 3-4 minutes.
Take 4 inches of wire and make a very small double coil on one end. Thread the wire through the holes of the base of the leaf sequins and then through the opening within the heart.
Make a 90 degree bend in the wire and then thread on the cube seed bead, the 12mm faceted round bead, the star flake, and finally the size 8 seed bead.
Create a simple loop above the size 8 seed bead and trim off the excess wire.
Using the toothpick or open paper clip, place a little resin into the gap between the heart and the leaf sequins (angel wings) and adjust the wings into desired position. Use the hair clip to hold the wings into position. Place a small dot of resin onto 90 degree bend and cover with the star. Place into the UV light for 3-4 minutes.
Remove the hair clip, open the loop at the top and attach to the bow pin.
