Stamped Maltese Cross
This project is as clever as it is fun! We were inspired by some of the projects in this book,

1 1/2 inch circle blank
to create the cross and setting for this square
Swarovski crystal ring
. Check out our
feature blog post
on this design for full step-by-step instructions and pictures to help you along.
