Paper Pendant tutorial



This paper pendant was created from embellishments in the May Scrap For A Cure kit. I have made EIGHT projects/cards/layouts from this kit, and I still have product left for more! You can get your kit from their website. It's a great value, and a great cause!

You can use this technique with any similar supplies. you will need:
*paper wreath or circle
*paper bird (could use a punch)
*cork heart
*mini alpha stickers
*paper glaze (such as Glossy Accents)
*jump rings or wire

Step One:
Cover the wreath with paper glaze. This will give it a glassy, glossy finish and protect it from damage. Poke a hole in the top and two below to feed jump rings through later.


Step Two:
Edge the bird with ink to give it a little depth, then glaze.



Step Three:
Pierce holes in the cork heart and attach with jump rings



Step Four:
Attach bird with glue dot and letter stickers (cover any exposed sticker backs with pieces of cardstock).



You can hang your pendant from a leather string or ribbon, or you can attach it to a card with a brad to give as a gift! The card above was also made with supplies from the May kit!

I don't know about you, but summer is a busy birthday season for us, and I am running low on cards. In preparation for our busy month, July, I will be hosting a week of card tutorials in June. So gather those stamps and scraps and stay tuned for the exact dates. Let's have some fun together and get ready for those parties and BBQs!

  6. You can get paper glaze at the craft store or the scrapbook store. It's usually in with the glue. I like Aleene's paper glaze or Ranger's glossy accents.
