Design Team: Kim Gaughan Week 16 Term 4

Heart Necklace
 
Kim Gaughan is getting ready for Halloween! She has created a fabulous necklace that is creepy as it is elegant. See how she did it below!
 
Hi Everyone! Happy Tuesday!
Halloween is almost here and I am still craftin' things for it! As I said a few weeks back in my skull bracelet tutorial, I am loving creating jewelry with my eBosser.
Today's tutorial is for a creepy necklace that's easy to make, and would be a great accessory for a witch costume!
 
 
Supplies
 
-eBosser
-Cooler Concepts Shrink Film
-printer and ink
- Dictionary and Green Floral Digital Papers from The Chillingsworth Manor Collection by Echo Park (Available at JessicaSprague.com)
- Happy Halloween 3"x3" Combo Die and Embossing Folder by ProvoCraft Cuttlebug (I just used the die, not the embossing folder)
- eCraft and circle basic shape or 1 inch hole punch
- 1/4" circle hand (hole) punch (Mine are by Fiskars)
- 9 6mm jump rings
- 1 lobster claw clasp
- Flat-nose pliers
- Needle-nose pliers
- Embossing Heat Gun
- Jewelry Chain
 
 
First, I printed the Dictionary and Green Floral Digital Paper from the Chillingsworth Manor Collection onto the Shrink Film by Cooler Concepts and let it dry.
Next, I cut out the heart section of the dictionary paper (vertically) with the die shape from the Happy Halloween 3"x3" Combo Die and Embossing Folder by ProvoCraft. I then punched holes in the top with my 1/4 inch hole punch.
Using my eCraft, I cut two 1 inch circles out of the Green Floral digital paper. Using the 1/4 inch hole punch, I punched a hole on one side of the circle, and then another hole directly across from it.
Then I shrank all of my cut out shapes with my embossing heat gun. After they were cooled down, I attached the shrink film charms together with jump rings and attached them to chain, adding a clasp and jump ring at the ends.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! If you have any questions please ask below. Also, let us know if you are using your eBosser to create spooky jewelry for Halloween!
See you next Tuesday!
