I started by cutting a strip of gray cardstock to 2 x 8 1/2 inches. I then used the Angled Tag Topper punch from Stampin’ Up! and punched both ends of the strip.
The next step is to cut slits in the card so there is a place for the chain to hand from. For the template, I used another strip punched by the Angled Tag Topper Punch and traced the angled edges with a pencil, and then carefully cut the slits with a pair of scissors.
For the inside of the card, I needed something to hold the chain in place and not get tangled. I thought I had some mini zip bags you use for jewelry, but I couldn’t find them. Instead, I had some thin cellophane bags used for stacking treats like M&Ms or Skittles. I cut the bag down to about 2 inches long and glued to the inside of the necklace card. You can see how well it holds the chain in the picture below.
