CTMH Swap Necklaces

If you read my blog often or saw me at Convention then you may have seen these necklaces I made. (I made one with the Silhouette papers for the Operation Smile silent auction. You can see it HERE.) They use washers (from the hardware store) as their base, and I found the idea with instructions on Splitcoast Stampers. (Try doing a search if you're interested in learning more, or keep coming back here because I plan to post a tutorial later this week.)

I made 45 (yes, that's right, forty-five) necklaces to swap at Convention. Needless to say, they are all gone.

Sorry the photo at right didn't turn out better. I have several more necklaces to post this week, plus instructions, so please come back. I am really pleased with my addition of a button to the original idea. I'd love to know what you think. (I'm also considering selling some so let me know if you're interested!)

Also, all of my hostesses for the rest of the year will receive their very own necklace as part of their thanks for having a gathering, class, or workshop with me (in addition to the fabulous hostess rewards that Close To My Heart already offers).

This project qualifies me for the Heart 2 Heart ABC (Anything But a Card) challenge this week. If you're not familiar with this awesome blog, please go check it out. It is always inspiring!
