Teacher Gift Necklace, Plus Giveaway

I am not feeling very well today, but I still wanted to put up a project.  My daughter is doing a Summer Academy this summer and I wanted to have a cute gift to give her teachers at the end of the month.

It was a really simple project.  I cut the paper to 1"x1" and used the rub ons for the letters.  Put the glass tile on top of the pape , and then trim the little overhang off.  Put the glass tile aside and put a mini glue dot on the back and started wrapping the twine around it.  Make sure there is excess twine to wrap around the front.

Side view to see the twine tied up the side.

Using craft glue to attach the paper to the tile make to get glue around the twine, and squeeze.  This part gets a little messy but easy to clean up after. :) 

After the image is all glued down wrap the twine around the front of the glass tile and tie a bow.  Flip the tile over and attach the bail using craft glue.

That's it Super Duper Easy!  I just an not sure what I want to do for the necklace...any ideas?


Giveway!!!
