Make yourself a beautiful monogram necklace, follow this tutorial to learn how. Charm necklaces make a great personalized gift. Great for teacher gifts!
I would like to start by saying this is not a sponsored post. I am showing you how to make these necklaces because I love giving personalized jewelry as gifts, and I love the product.
For my day job, I work at Stampin’ Up!. At the end of July, they hold their annual convention for all of their demonstrators. This event is something that my team works long and hard on to make sure that it is a successful event. There are 10 people on my team including myself. It is kind of a tradition to give a little gift to everyone when the event rolls around. I was very excited about my gift this year and really hoped that everyone would love their monogram necklace.
Stampin’ Up! is a company that specializes in rubber stamps, and ink and paper coordination. July is a busy month for us because it is also when the new annual catalog comes out with all of our new products. My favorite is the Designer Series Paper. I absolutely love all of the different pattern papers that we come out with. I thought it would be perfect to put a swatch of some of our new patterned paper into their necklaces. Here are the papers that decided to use.
The necklace components came from craftfantastic.com, and these kits are great for making your own jewelry. They make the process super simple, and the kits aren’t too expensive either.
The kit comes with a glue that you put on the back of the glass piece and then stick to the paper.
Let the glue dry for a couple of hours and the I trimmed the paper around the square glass piece.
The next step is where the monogram comes in. I found these perfect silver alphabet charms.
I added a silver jump ring to each letter and then attached to the base of the square pendant.
But of course, I need some cute packing to put them in. At the craft store, I also picked up these necklace envelopes.
But I couldn’t leave them plain! So I added some fun stamping to the front of them.
I strung the monogram charms onto 30″ fine ball chain and put them in their packaging.
Here are all 8! I didn’t make myself one (although I’m wishing I did), and the other person on our team is a guy, and I didn’t think he would appreciate it, so he got a big bag of candy instead.
