Does it get much cuter than this? This is a fun spin on a locket necklace. Using simple materials to create a fun and personalized accessory. These make great gifts or are perfect just to make for yourself.
Here's what you need:
- oven-bake clay
- rolling pin
- x-acto knife
- blank necklace pendant
- super glue (or other glue of choice)
Preheat your oven to 275 degrees F.
Next cut your card stock. You'll need two pieces for templates. You can make the size based on how large you want to make yours. Our pieces measure 1 inch by 1 1/4 inches and 7/16 inch by 3/4 inch. Cut your piece and set them to the side.
Roll out your clay to a thin even layer. Using your larger template, cut out 2 sections of clay.
Using your smaller template, cut out a square from one of your larger pieces of clay.
Press both pieces of your clay together.
Your edges may be a little messy, but they can easily be cleaned up by carefully using your x-acto and your fingers to smooth out all of the sides.
Next you will want to bake your clay for 15.
While its baking you will need to size and print your photo. It will be the same size as your smaller template. Ours was 7/16 inch by 3/4 inch.
If you want your photo to be permanent, glue your photo in and you will want to seal it. If you want to be able to change it out to your heart's content like us, just use a little piece of tape to hold it in place.
Glue on your necklace pendant, put on your chain, and you are set!
