Charm Tutorial

I've been making these great charms for those bland places on my jewelry. I thought I'd make a tutorial for all of you because these are so easy!

All you need:
*Paper of choice (I used old hymnal pages)
*Round plastic pieces (You can use metal as well)
*Water base glue (I used Mod Podge)
*Mod Podge Dimensional Magic

These are some plastic tabs I took off of an old necklace.

 I made a heart-shaped hymnal box for one of my friends on her birthday. I had a million little heart pages left over. This put the to good use. :)

I just traced the circles over words I like or pretty music notes.

I put a small amount of glue on the paper and the black tab.

 After the glue dried I used a lighter to burn the edges.

The if you're using metal tabs definitely use pliers or tweezers to hold the tab, I used my fingers but I wouldn't recommend it. 

 Sometimes the plastic curls. You can use your knife to cut the thick edges. Personally they don't bother me so I just left them.

Now your going to take those small pieces and cover them with a generous amount of Dimensional Magic.

Pop any bubbles using a needle

Let dry over night

Once dry, poke holes and there you have it. 

Thanks for your time! Comment below with questions.
God Bless.

Thought I'd throw up a quick post showing the dandelion pendent I've just made. I used a small metal sheet and acrylic paint. I'm hopefully going to use this in one of my pieces really soon. :)
Have a great weekend! God bless.
