Necklace Tutorial from the Fairy Party

To make this Necklace you will need to find charms relating to your party...Here butterflies...





Leather or Suede thread....Make sure to precut them so you know you have enough for the Party, i spent $3 per child...


Fender washers....


Glue and scissors...Pretty paper of choice...


Chose your paper and glue your washer on the back side of paper. Cut around...


Repeat on the other side...


Add your charm and thread...Make a knot...



The girls loved them ....

The kids loved them so much, we made more...




My boy made a plane one...




My Fairy made a star fish one...


Here a Dolphin...


To make mine....I used this picture...



The Graphic Fairy Here


Print it it on wallet size...on pink paper...



How cute is that...Great for a Parisian Party


Here

I thought of doing it also with this Vintage French picture...Printing it on Aqua blue paper...
Would look so good....I was going to make it, then i got my back fixed and was down...But you get the idea :)

Happy crafting!!!
XOXO
Frenchy
