If bespoke gowns and one-of-a-kind garments are a little far from your reach, ensure your accessories are setting you apart from the rest and craft your own! This statement necklace will bring that sixties summer vibe to your everyday get-ups in no time.
1. Make a selection of flowers from various colours of cardstock, using small, medium and large palm punches. Layer smaller flowers on top of larger ones and punch some centres with the different sized nibs in the Xcut Screw Hole Punch. Adhere one in the middle of each flower.
2. Use a circular nesting die to cut two pieces of white cardstock and one from white funky foam. Layer these to create a sandwich with the foam in the middle, and fix in place with Anita’s Tacky Glue. Arrange your flowers on top and secure in place when happy with the distribution. Punch a hole centrally through the top of the disc (the chain will go through here) and cover the front generously with a layer of Anita’s 3D Clear Gloss. Leave to dry for approximately four hours.
3. Die cut two alphas from Xcut Xtras A5 Adhesive Cork Sheets and one from funky foam, and create another sandwich with the foam in the middle. Secure together, using the sticky backing, and carefully punch a hole in the top. Pass a chain through the punched holes on both necklace components and your jewellery is complete!
