Making these Fairy Forest Domino Necklaces are very easy. I will say that you will want to make these on a nice weather day as moisture will cause issues with the Diamond Glaze and with the glue drying. When the weather is nice there are no issues and everything works beautifully.

How to make a Fairy Forest Domino Necklace

Select images from the Fairy Forest Digital Images – these are domino size 1 in. x 2 in. Trim out to the size of the image.

Using a paint brush apply a layer of Diamond Glaze to the domino, then place the image face up, on top.

Trim the image close to the domino. Use Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven to cover the white edges of the paper. This will also help blend the paper to the domino.

Coat the top of the domino with Diamond Glaze. Go slow when squeezing the Diamond Glaze so that you don’t get bubbles. Bubbles are hard to get rid of, you will have to poke these with a pin.

Let air dry, depending on the moisture in the air it could take thirty minutes or it could take a couple of hours. I have found that if you try to dry with a heat tool it will cause the Diamond Glaze to bubble.

Once the Diamond Glaze is dry flip the domino over and apply Loctite super glue to adhere the bail.

When the super glue is dry it is ready for the necklace. How to make a Fairy Forest Domino Necklace

How to make Shaker Box Charm Pendants

How to make Shaker Box Charm Pendants using Calico Collage Fanciful 1 inch digital images, Shaker box pendants and tiny glass diamonds. Super cute and easy to make!

When I found the Blank Slate pendants I knew these would be wonderful shaker box charm pendants. I purchased all they had at the store as these were on clearance and I didn’t want to miss out on having these in my stash.

Later I got a message from the owner of Calico Collage and she asked if I would do a tutorial on jewelry using her images. Things then clicked together and these are the pendants I made.

How to make Shaker Box Charm Pendants

Supplies used for How to make Shaker Box Charm Pendants:
Calico Collage Fanciful 1 inch digital images
Judikins Diamond Glaze – on Amazon
Hammered Bezel with Clear Acrylic Insert 33mm Hobby Lobby
Blank Slate 3 mm Crystal Faceted Glass Stones – Hobby Lobby
Mini Silver Filigree Butterfly Charms – Hobby Lobby
Metallic Glass Microbead in gold – on Amazon
Loctite super glue – on Amazon
3/4 inch square punch – on Amazon

The little Shaker Box Charm Pendants are so easy to make!

Here is a video to show you How to make Shaker Box Charm Pendants:

Download the Calico Collage Fanciful 1 inch digital images and print. I sent mine to Staples to have them printed on a laser printer. These were printed on standard white paper and look beautiful.

Trim the sheet into rows of images so that it is easy to use the 3/4 inch square punch – on Amazon on the images you want in the pendants.

Inside the Hammered Bezel with Clear Acrylic Insert 33mm Hobby Lobby place a drop of Judikins Diamond Glaze – on Amazon then add the image on top. Push down so that the glue spreads out to the edges of the image.

Select items to put inside I used:
Blank Slate 3 mm Crystal Faceted Glass Stones – Hobby Lobby
Mini Silver Filigree Butterfly Charms – Hobby Lobby
Metallic Glass Microbead in gold – on Amazon

Once all the bits and bobs have been added inside place a drop of the Loctite super glue – on Amazon in each corner of the bezel. It doesn’t take much of this glue. I like that is a gel and doesn’t come out fast. I’ve also found that unlike other super glues this one doesn’t dry up in the bottle before you get to use all of the glue.

Place the acrylic insert on top. Since the loop at the top is from front to back you will want to add a jump ring or use small gauge cord and tie a knot for the necklace.

I hope you enjoyed seeing How to make Shaker Box Charm Pendants. Make a few and share with friends and family. They will love these. 🙂

How to make Bottle Cap Magnets

Download the Collage Whimsey Digital Images, print. I decided to send mine to Staples so that I got crisp laser images.

Use a circle punch on the images you want to use. A paper trimmer is handy as you can trim down the rows of circles so that you can punch easier.

Go around the edges of the image with Brutus Monroe Detail ink – Raven. Using a permanent ink will be important so that the ink won’t run or fade.

Select a bottle cap and place a drop of Judikins Diamond Glaze in the center. Place the image you want on top.

Add a “Spare Parts” clear epoxy sticker on top of the image.

Adhere magnet with Omni-Stick glue.

Admire your creativity.

A video of the whole process is here:

Making these little bottle cap magnets would be great gifts. Great for Teachers. Could also be a great craft fair item to sell.

I placed a few on my magnet cabinet in my studio. These will hold important notes and art.

How to make Scrabble Jewelry

How to make Scrabble Jewelry, using Calico Collage Digital images – Simply Spring Charms, Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven, Judikins Diamond Glaze, 8-Ounce and jewelry findings.

How to make Scrabble Jewelry

Recently while shopping in the clearance isle at Hobby Lobby I found some black mixed media scrabble tiles. I knew that these would be perfect to make Scrabble Jewelry.

Supplies used:
Scrabble like tiles on Amazon.
Calico Collage Digital Images – Simply Spring Charm images.
Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven
Judikins Diamond Glaze, 8-Ounce – on Amazon
Jewelry Bails – on Amazon.
Square Punch – on Amazon
Scissors – on Amazon

These are super easy to make. And since I used the Diamond Glaze I can choose to make one or 100. Diamond Glaze doesn’t require mixing. No need to know the exact amount for the project. Just pour on what you need.

What I really love about the Calico Collage images is that they are crisp clear images even when only 1 inch in size. I was able to use a small square punch to select the images. It was easier once I cut the images into strips. That way I could put the punch where I wanted.

The little Scrabble Jewelry pieces will make great gifts for Birthday, Mother’s Day, Anniversary and evenChristmas. Or if you are wanting to make a little money, just gather up all the supplies and make as many as you want. It may even turn into a full-time job.

However, if you are not into making these, hit me up. I’ll make some for you, just tell me what kind of images you like the most.

When I made these I didn’t even purchase necklaces. I used cord that I had in my stash. Can use leather cord or even nylon cord, the choice is up to you.

Here is a video on how to make Scrabble Jewelry:

Who would you give Scrabble Jewelry to in your life? My mother might like one of these. Now I just have to decide which image she would like. Or I guess I could take a selection to her so that she could choose.
