Recently I got fun mail from Expressionery, my first and favorite licensee! They sent me a box of new stationery using my daisy designs (note cards, flat notes and round labels)! I accidentally bent a note card in the corner so I decided to re-purpose it. I love to use things that otherwise might get thrown away to create some new fun things.
The girls love to make things for their dolls. We made this necklace and bracelet for Saige, one of our American Girl Dolls, first. It is tiny, doll sized actually, but the same technique could be used to make jewelry scaled a little larger for girls of all ages.
These are the materials that we used: the note card, Mod Podge For Kids, Glass Pendant Square and Circle, Brush and Wire (wire makes it easy to bend around the doll’s wrist and neck)
To attach the wire to the glass back after I cut it out, I used hot glue. If you are making this with kids, I recommend that you do the hot gluing!
I still had a lot of note card left so I decided to make some fun push pins for my bulletin board.
I used the same basic technique but substituted a Beacon adhesive to attach the note card to the glass circles. I then used hot glue to attach them to the buttons (from my Laura Kelly collection of colors licensed to Buttons Galore of course) and to the thumbtacks.I think they came out super cute!
I really love them on the board.
The last thing made from the note card was mini note cards for Saige, the American Girl Doll! You can find out more about that on the blog post on Doll Diaries.
Happy Making Things, Up-Cyling, Recreating and Creating,
