Mod Podge “Dream” Necklace

Hey, friends!  You may remember that as soon as I got back from the CHA {Craft & Hobby Assn.} Mega Show, I couldn’t wait to tell you all about some of the fun new products Plaid is releasing this year.  Today, I want to show you one more; Faceted Podgeable Shapes!  You may have seen {and played with} the regular, flat Podgeable Shapes in the past, like I did when I made my “definition of a Mother” necklace.  These new shapes are similar, but I actually love them even more for jewelry making!  The faceted edges add elegance and dimension, don’t you think?  Take a look…

One of the great things about the Podgeable Shapes is that you can use them with anything!  You could make a charm from a dictionary definition, a photo, sheet music, scrapbook paper, or pretty much any other paper you like.  For my necklace, I used some of the things found in the Antiqued Urban Podgeable Papers.  I like the way they have coordinating designs, some of which are already sized to fit the shapes, and they allow you to create your own little design.  Here’s what I used:

{disclosure: my papers, shapes, and Mod Podge were provided by Plaid Crafts}
– Antiqued Urban Podgeable Papers
– Faceted Podgeable Shapes
– Mod Podge Gloss
– scissors
– toothpick
– jump ring and chain
– jewelry pliers

Step 1: First, I cut the circle that I wanted to use as the background of my pendant.  It was already sized to fit my shape perfectly, yay!  Then I cut out the word “dream,” and carefully cut around a small butterfly.  I didn’t worry about getting everything perfect because I wanted it to have a handmade, scrapbooked look.

Step 2: I used a small amount of Mod Podge to adhere my word and butterfly onto the background.  Don’t overdo it with the Mod Podge here; everything will get adhered to the shape in the next step, so as long as you use just enough to stick everything in place, you’re good.  I have to tell you it was super tempting for me to add glitter at this stage, but it just didn’t seem to jive with the antiquey-vintage feel of the design, so I refrained.

Step 3: Spread a thin layer of Mod Podge onto the flat side of the shape and adhere your design.  I also like to spread a thin layer on the back of the design as well to seal the paper and protect it from damage.

Step 4: Poke a toothpick through the hole to pierce the paper.  Then, add a jump ring and chain.

That’s all there is to it!  Just a few minutes, a few supplies, and you have a one of a kind pendant that’s sure to make a statement wherever you go.
