25 Days of {homemade} Christmas Gifts-Day 7 Tile pendant

Todays gift is a tile pendant.

Here are some of the supplies that I used for this gift:

Tim Holtz acrylic tile fragments-$8.99 use your coupon-These are in the scrapbook section.
Glossy Accents- This should be in the same section as the fragments
double sided scrapbook paper
glue on bail-found in the jewelry section
craft knife
E-6000 adhesive

Use your acrylic tile to help you decide what part of your paper you want to have on your pendant.

Then add your rub-ons to the part of the paper you are going to use. I decided to add a little bit of glitter to the flower.

Once it's done, add a glob of Glossy Accents to the paper and then squish the tile down on top of it. After it's dry, use your craft knife to cut around the edges. If you cut your paper a little jagged, you can use some finish sandpaper to even it out.

Now, I accidently got Glossy Accents on my fingers and touched the top of the tile, so I added a layer of Glossy Accents to the top. It gave it a wavy look because I didn't get it very smooth. I would try to avoid having to do this! I also put a coat on the back so it would protect the paper from rubbing off. Let this dry overnight.

Once it's dry, add a little bit of E-6000 to the glue on bail and put it on the back of your tile.

I would let the E-6000 cure for a day before wearing it. Now you are all done!

These same supplies will be used on another gift, so make sure you check back! And don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win a Michael's gift card! Happy holiday crafting!

OH! I Love this! I have everything but the glue on bail to make it! SUPER FUN! Thanks for sharing! I never knew what to do with those tiles LOL! I wonder if you could use the charms like his and then omit the glue on bail?

So cute! I can't believe the only thing I'll have to buy is the jewelry bail. A very versatile project anyone should be able to do and anyone would love to receive.

I love, love, love this necklace! This is so cute. I went and purchased everything but the bail. Michael's and Hobby Lobby did not know what a glue on bail was.
