In the days before Stampin' Up! (and a number of other hobbies...) I used to make and sell jewellery, so when I saw this idea I couldn't resist!
It just so happens that last month I finally brought Hodgepodge Hardware, which had been on my 'wishlist' for months, so I had everything I needed...
You will need:
RubOns, Crystal Effects, 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Hodgepodge Hardware, Cardstock scraps and Craft & Rubber Scissors (or similar to trim the metal tags)
What to do:
Cut scraps of cardstock to fit inside your chosen Hodgepodge Tag (I cut two as mine is double sided)
Embellish the scraps with your chosen RubOns.
Carefully adhere cardstock to the Hodgepodge Tag using Crystal Effects (Use 2 tags if you are making a double sided pendent like mine). Allow to dry.
Trim one end off the tag using Craft & Rubber Scissors
If yours is double sided, adhere the 2 tags back to back using Crystal Effects
Once dry, apply a layer of Crystal Effects to the surface on each side to protect your images and make them nice and glossy. Allow several hours to dry.
Thread ribbon through the hole and secure using the buckle from Hodgepodge Hardware set.
I think this would make a great pendent for a necklace, but am planning to give this one away as a bookmark.
I would love to see your versions of this project - e-mail me your photos and I'll publish them on my blog. There's also some 'blog candy' up for grabs for my favourite entry before the end of February...
