Gift Card Necklace

I'm knee deep in Fall and Pumpkin projects and needed a little break from orange and black.



So I decided to start playing around with old gift cards again.



I had this left over from the Gift Card Bracelet that I did Here and that word "crafts" kept jumping out at me. Let's not talk about the fact that I still had that little piece of plastic, okay?



I cut out "craft" using my scrapbook scissors.



I used Dimensional Magic on the front and glued a bail on the back.



Love it! The good news is, I still have more of the cut up cards so earrings should be next!

Back to the pumpkin patch!

I'll be linking Here this week.

I'm not letting my husband see this. He'll use it as an excuse to cut up my credit cards. Another fun piece--love the scalloped edge.

What a cute necklace! Now I am going to start collecting gift cards. I will blame you when my husband says "really?!?" Ha ha. Great idea! Thank you so much for sharing at Savvy HomeMade Monday!

Kammy Wielenga said...

HaHAH! I'm laughing at the comment "let's not talk about me still having that piece of plastic" cuz that is SO ME too!!! Just might want for SOMETHING! The advantages to being a scrap hoarder is you usually have what you're looking for down the road - might be 5 years later, but by George, you knew you saved it for something! haha!! SO CREATIVE you are! love it!

Kassi @ Truly Lovely said...

This is so nice and creative. I have never thought that jewellery can be made in this way other than beading.
