Paper Craftin with Erica

Homemade Necklace Pendants

I papercrafted these pendants and they are so cool.  I got the idea from my pal, Jill.  She did a great job.  I used the  paper collections from The Angel Company and a sanding block to sand the edges down.  I used Tim Holtz distress inks to ink the edges.

Yep, that's right.  They're Scrabble tiles!  I cut the paper to specification, glued it on with mod podge and then sanded the edges after it dried.  After stippling the edges and sides with distress ink, I applied glossy accents to the top of tile.  Let it dry overnight!!  When dry, attach the pendant loops on the back with the same glossy accents.  Let it dry overnight!!  I used crackle accents (instead of glossy accents) on some of them for an aged look.  Be sure to show me your work if you try it!

    Do you know I LOVE this!! I don’t remember Jill talking about this!
    I think this is so neat. You can also make these to scrap with, or put on ATC’s. Great job. I will totally have to try this!

    Very pretty, and unusual. My two criteria for great accessories. You have done great job. I loved your idea of making necklace at home.
