My real life job, yeah the one that pays the bills around here, is getting in the way so I hope you'll bear with me while I figure out how to fit it all in.
In the meantime...I hope you enjoy this week's fun and super easy project!
-Pretty medium/heavy weight paper
-craft knife and cutting mat
-standard jewellery making kit: pliers, jump rings, chain, closure
-small hole punch
(In the picure you also see a glue runner, but I decided not to use it so just pretend it's not there)
Before we get started I have to tell you about my template. I picked it up at the dollar store and got 4 different templates for a whopping $1.25!
I was originally drawn to the mailing/gift tags but this project uses the leaf pattern:
1) Choose 4 different papers and decide how you want to layer them. It's important to use heavier weight paper so that your pendant doesn't bend or fly around while you're wearing it.
|It's hard to see but some of these|
4) Using a very small hole punch, punch a hole through the top tip of the shape, getting as close as you can to the edge without tearing the paper.
So easy! You can use any type of shape. This is a great paper buster for all those little bits of scraps you keep from past projects too! If you want to add more body to your shapes add a layer of Dimensional Mod Podge before you put it all together.
I'll try to have more to share next week. Until then...don't be afraid to leave a comment~
