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.

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. 🙂

Shopping Haul Video Featuring Tuesday Morning, Michael’s, and Hobby Lobby

Shopping Haul Video Featuring Tuesday Morning, Michael's, and Hobby Lobby

Don’t you have fun when you go shopping for art and craft supplies? I try not to do it to often. My goal this year is to reduce the amount of items in my studio, not add to it daily. lol But sometimes you have to go out and get a few things.

Here is a video of all the goodies I got. Enjoy

Paper Arts, My Hearts Fancy & Hobby Lobby Haul

Sharing a Paper Arts, My Hearts Fancy & Hobby Lobby Haul and Bonus How to make a Laurel Burch Wild Horses Card. Having the opportunity to visit local shops is a wonderful thing. It is good to visit those local shops to help them stay in business.

Paper Arts, My Hearts Fancy & Hobby Lobby Haul

For this shopping excursion, I had a mission to find a few supplies for upcoming projects. Looking around Paper Arts I found some really cool looking dies that I knew would be perfect for projects.

Drove over to Hobby Lobby and picked up a watercolor journal that I will use for a Traveling Journal Round Robin I’ll be at the end of this month. There was a really nice spiral journal that I feel will be perfect. I’ll have to remove a few pages as we are doing a monthly journal and there are 12 of us in the group. While there I also picked up a pad of watercolor paper to make a journal for another group. This journal will be a watercolor journal swap.

While at Hobby Lobby I wondered over to the clearance section and found a fun die set that says Celebrate. When I saw the letters I saw – Create, Art and knew there were more words I could create. In fact, I did a google search and found a website WordMaker where you can type in the letters and it will tell you the words that can be made. This will be a fun purchase.

At My Hearts Fancy, I found a beautiful Laurel Burch Stamp Wild Horses. Recently while in Santa Fe New Mexico I purchased a beautiful Laurel Burch tote bag that has super cute puppy dogs painted on the outside.

When I walked into My Hearts Fancy I saw a new display of Laurel Burch Stamps and knew that I needed to get one. The Wild Horses stamp spoke to me so I purchased that stamp.

Video of the Paper Arts, My Hearts Fancy & Hobby Lobby Haul:


Once I got home with all my goodies and shared them in the video. I had to make a card too. Pulling out the Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven and a few colors of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists – Party Pink, Denim Blue, True Turquoise, Night B4 Christmas.

Stamped with Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven using my MISTI. Heat set the ink. Spray with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists – Party Pink, Denim Blue, True Turquoise, Night B4 Christmas. The pinks were on the right and the blues were on the left.

Heat set the sprays. Then using a paint brush I colored the areas that I wanted darker.

I love the shimmer that Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists add to projects. This stamp will be one I’ll enjoy playing with over and over.

Hope you enjoyed my shopping Paper Arts, My Hearts Fancy & Hobby Lobby Haul and Bonus How to make a Laurel Burch Wild Horses Card.

Hobby Lobby & Michaels Haul & I made a Stencil

Hobby Lobby & Michaels Haul & I made a Stencil. I did a bad thing as my husband would say. I went shopping. Mainly because I had a gift card and because I wanted to get some items for my Happy Planner.

Hobby Lobby & Michaels Haul & I made a Stencil

Boy was I lucky that I went shopping! While at Hobby Lobby I found a Happy Planner 9 hole punch for $17.99. I was going to go to Michaels and purchase the one they offer but it was $39.99. So I figured I saved money even if I have to make two punches for an 8.5 in. x 11 in. page. It was worth saving the money.

Since I didn’t have to use a 40% off coupon to get the punch I did pick up a package of 12 page protectors. These I knew would be fun to add items to my planner.

But I did make it to Michaels because one of my Facebook friends posted that there was a new display of Unicorn items. She was so bad for doing this! LOL I just had to go see what was being offered. Thankfully I had a 60% off coupon I could use and was able to get a great deal on a set of stamps, a package of unicorn washi tape and even stickers. I’m so excited to be able to use these in my planner.

Here is a little video of the items I purchased.

Finally while watching a video by Karen Burchill on youtube about her making a stencil for her planner. I got an idea to make a stencil on my Silhouette. This stencil fits the boxes in my Happy Planner. When I want to decorate a box and not make a mess outside of that box I can lay my stencil down and it will protect the area around the box.

Being excited about making this stencil I ended up making 3 patterns and a plain box. I see myself making more of these. Now to draw some designs to scan into my computer!

What kind of images would you like to use on your stencils? I would love to read your ideas, it may spark an idea to help me create my own stencils. And maybe I’ll even share the file with you if you have a Silhouette.
