Project Pinterest - my first project

Have you checked out pinterest yet?  You will find so many cool ideas and inspiration.  From color schemes to animals to books to art projects.  I found these necklaces and wanted to try to make these.
Aren't these too cool!
Original source HERE

I bought my supplies from Sun and Moon Craft Kits.  I've thought of trying these necklaces for a while.   Here's what I came up with.  
I really like the white flower with the red background
Can you see the Rooster in the last one on the right?
I had so much fun deciding which papers to use.  I could link these up and make matching earrings or a cute bracelet.  The possibilities are endless.   I may try image transfer next.

This project was so easy.  If you get the kit mentioned above the only other item you need is the E6000 glue.  Here's a short tutorial:

1) clean the glass
2) choose your papers, cut to the size of the glass
3) adhere the paper to the glass using the glue that comes with the kit (I think you can use mod podge also).  Wipe off any side drips of the glue.
4) seal the back of the paper with more glue or mod podge - let dry
5) attach the bail using the E6000 glue - let dry completely (maybe overnight)
6) put on a chain and enjoy your new necklace!  (the kit contains necklaces!)

You get a more detailed how-to from Sun and Moon as part of the kit.

Easy Peasy.
Linking up with Project Pinterest with Sandee over at In the Hills of North Carolina.
