Making your own jewelry is something that you can personalize and hang onto for a long time. Lucky for you today I’m sharing with you quick Necklace Pendants that you can make for yourself in only about 5 minutes.
All you need for these pendants are Scrapbook paper, Mod Podge, a paintbrush and these facets that I found at Michaels Crafts or you can find them right here on Amazon.com. They are plastic but they are pretty and come with jump rings already so you don’t have to buy anymore supplies.
Also if they fall out of the package, they are impossible to get back in, just FYI.
I highly recommend using double sided scrapbook paper.
When you cut it out, cut a little extra off to account for the pencil not being able to trace under the actual facet but stay true to the shape. I think I cut less than 1/16th extra off. The easiest way is to cut a tiny bit at a time and hold it up to make sure you’re getting the right shape. It doesn’t have to be perfect but you don’t want paper hanging off over the edge. Just keep trimming.
Give it a few seconds to set while you clean up your work surface. Now take a pin or a needle and push it through the back of the facet and through the hole that is already in the actual facet so that you will have an area to put your jump ring. Do not push it front to back or your paper will get pushed off the facet.
These would make great gifts for bridesmaids, teachers, or even your own children! They are quick, easy, and made by you!
