I found some really fun geometric necklaces on craftgawker, but they were made out of paper/paint chips. I kinda laughed at the idea because "Paper is way too flimsy to wear." Right? I kept seeing more and more of them being posted and then I finally decided "Why not try it?" (They were very cute.) So I pulled out some paper, glue, and a little nail polish. Since I wasn't using paint chips, which naturally have a sheen, I painted on some clear nail polish. It not only gives it a shine, but protects the paper.
Very quick and super easy.
- Draw a "V" on the corner of a sheet of paper. Make it 1/4" up, 1 1/8" across, and 1 1/8" up, and 1/4" over. Cut on the line. Cut out three "V"s, each out of a different color.
2. Rub glue on the back of all three colors. Place them down on a white sheet of paper, putting the bottom color down first and so on up.
3. Cut around the outline.
4. Brush on a light coat of clear nail polish. Let it dry. Poke one hole in the top of each corner.
Put a link of chain in each hole and then attach desired length of chain.
You are ready to wear it!
