Happy H{ippity} Hop - August 30, 2010

I made these necklaces for my sister and I to wear at CHA.  My camera didn't take a very good picture, but the red things are velvet gift bags I made for the necklaces.  I had embossed them with the same stamp I used to make the charm.  The charms were very simple to make.  First, I stamped the image (using Stazon Opaque - white) on black cardstock.  Then I used Mod Podge to adhere to the back of the glass stone (these were found in the floral department at Michael's they are used in the bottom of containers) and trimmed the edges.  Third, I glued the bail on (I used Weld Bond, my E6000 was dry I found a hole in the tube).  I let everything dry for 24 hours.  Last (the hardest part, I think), I threaded the chord through the bail (3 times) and attached the clasps.  Thanks for looking!
