Krylon Paper Finishes Spray adhesive- I purchased mine at Hobby Lobby
crop-o-dile or other small hole punch (not pictured)
After you have selected the paper you want to use for your pendent, peel both sides of the brown protective wrapping off the pendant.
Determine what part of the paper’s design you want on the pendant.
Cut the design out, leaving some extra space to allow for easy handling.
For the bird pendant, I punched the circle out with my circle punch. Then I attached it to the green and cream paper with a tape runner.
Place your paper on the cardboard outside.
When I go outside to spray the glue I usually put the pendants separately in my pockets. This prevents them from getting scratched and from the glue landing on them.
Once you thoroughly spray the paper, pull the pendants out and press the paper firmly to the pendants. You could even use a one folder or a brayer on the back to ensure a firm bond.
Let the pendants dry- I usually bring them inside to dry
Once the glue is dry or you can’t wait any longer, use the craft knife to trim the excess off. I used it for both the square and round pendants. For the round pendants, I also used some small Fiskers scissors to finish off little bits of paper that were hard to get with the craft knife.
It is great to use double sided paper so the pendants look finished on the back. If you choose a single sided paper you can finish off the back by attaching paper or stamping on the back. I applied ledger paper to the back of the square pendant using a tape runner. I stamped on the back of the circle pendant using distress inks-this can make for a nice personal gift.
Use the small side of the hole punch on the crop-o-dile to make your hole in the paper. Then add your jump rings which are included in the package.
Here is the finished product! They kind of look like vintage wallpaper.
A quick and easy project. These would make great gifts too!
I would love to see what you make!
