Well, I did it. I created something out of my comfort zone. (my comfort zone, being handmade greeting cards, or scrapbook journals.) But this is a paper craft item, because the designs are made using scrapbook and/or designer patterned papers. I've never attempted anything like this before. And, I am happy to say, that I really like the end result. I created these using old scraps of patterned papers. However, the one pendant on the far left was created using simple Rub-Ons! They are done in a snap! Yes, just rub right onto the washer. And it doesn't even require any gloss...pretty the way it is! It is actually one of my favs! So, my fellow card makers and scrapbookers, once again, an adorable hand crafted item, great for gifts, and they only cost about $5.65 to make the very large one, and $2.65 for the others. You can view some of the tutorials, I listed on earlier posts, by going to the right side of my blog, and under the "Labels" heading click on Washer Pendant Necklaces.
I've included a picture, here of my favorite pendant, using the simple Rub-Ons:
And here is a picture of the same washers from the backside. I used my metal stamps to create these sentiments. As you can see, from the "Cherish" sentiment, I got a bit better with some practice. But, that's what makes it handcrafted, right?
I have more pendants that to post here, so check back. I will have these and more available at the Rummage-A-Ramma, located at the Manitowoc County Expo Center this coming Saturday, November 14th. The Rummage-A-Ramma will run from 8:30am-2:30pm this Saturday. See you all there!
