I was going through my stuff that I had left over from the Big Sale. Somehow the Nester’s cool lockets ended up in my pile. I immediately sent her a text to see if she wanted them back and where she bought them. She replied back that I could have them (she is so generous) and that she had purchased them at either Michael’s or Hobby Lobby.
As I looked over the lockets, I had several ideas pop into my head. Then three people that are on my Christmas list popped into my head!!!
For this project I was going to need perfect cut out circles for the lockets. Luckily I have this bad boy. If you don’t have one of these, grab your 50% off Micheal’s coupon and go out and get one. I have used this over and over again for cut out circles in different sizes.
I was just going to use regular college rule notebook paper because I love the old schoolness of it. Then I remembered I had this paper in my stash.
I still wanted to use the notebook paper and grabbed my $1.00 Micheal’s alphabet stamps to create words that reminded me of these three friends I was making the gifts for.
I glued the two circles together with a glue stick.
I buy ball chain in bulk on Etsy, I usually get around 100 necklaces for $20.00, but you can order a lot less then that. You can buy ball chain at Hobby Lobby or Micheal’s as well. It’s just great to have around to create fun necklaces for friends or for my daughter and her friends to play and create with.
One very cool inexpensive necklace that can be worn two ways.
Ok L, B, K don’t judge the gift by the amount spent! Remember it’s the thought that counts! xoxoxo
Are you giving any handmade gifts this year!?!?
