Chipboard Chunky Necklace
Roberts (our big local craft store) is going out of business. Sniff. But, I have been stocking up on some goods as they are closing out their merchandise. With some of my goods I came up with this necklace.
Largish Jump Rings (I had square ones)
So, first I laid out the shapes in a way that I liked.
Then, I traced the shapes onto scrapbook paper and cut them out. Then I applied to the chipboard with mod podge. After that I filed the edges to give it a more worn look.
Then, apply a layer of Mod Podge to the top of that and let dry. After that is dry,
add a lay of Diamond Glaze and let sit at least overnight.
Repeat for the opposite side, because the chipboard will flip. Choose the same paper or coordinating paper.
Then I used my Big Bite to punch holes through the sides.
After that I put about 5 jump rings in between each chipboard piece. Then I used my pliers to cut the chain to the length I liked, and attached the chain with more jump rings. Then I used one final jump ring to attach the chain together. (It is long enough that it slips over my head and doesn't need clasps or anything)
