Photo Pendant {Tutorial}

Recently, Shutterfly ran a special where you received 101 prints for free. I jumped at that offer as I have almost 300 Disney pictures from our 2012 trip to scrapbook.

The bonus with Shutterfly orders is that you receive the index print sheets. My daughter suggested we use our new Epiphany cutter to make pendant necklaces with photographs from Disney. The index photos are the perfect size for this craft!

It was super simple ... we just chose the photograph each of my girls and myself wanted to use in our project

This little cutting machine is so super easy to use ... just pop the photo or scrapbook paper you want to use in the window. Add a clear sticker {also made by Epiphany} and press down hard.

Next, just place the finished product into a pendant. {These pendants are also made by Epiphany - though we have made these necklaces before without the holder. Just use lots of glaze on the back of your photo or scrapbook paper.}

This next step is important ... we glued our picture into the pendant using Glossy Accents. Then I went around the photo with a line of glaze to seal it up.

Here are our three pendants drying ... the girls each chose a picture from Bippity Boppity Boutique and I went with a picture of all three kids in front of the castle with their mouse ears on.

And, our finished necklaces. I used Disney themed ribbon to string our pendants but, you could use a silver chain or whatever strikes your fancy.

So glad to finally get all of our Disney photographs scrapbooked and what a great bonus ... fun new necklaces!

Those look like a fun project to do with the kids (and much better than leaving those tiny pics in an envelope stored away). Also love that ric-rac paper you have!! Would love to get some of that. Thanks for linking to Craftastic Monday at Sew Can Do:)
