Custom jewelry deserves a custom jewelry card. A simple DIY craft tutorial idea. A necklace card is great when selling jewelry or giving it away as a gift.
Last week I shared a tutorial for DIY Jewelry Pendant Necklaces. They turned out beautifully and I am very proud of them.
Since these were made as gifts for some blogger friends of mine, I knew I needed to add that extra detail and create a necklace card for them. The necklace card is super simple to make and shows that you took that extra step to make the gift look even more presentable.
Supplies Used: Some links may be too similar items when exact items couldn’t be found online.
- Gray Cardstock
- Tag Topper Punch
- White eyelets
- Eyelet Setter Tool
- Sentiment Rubber Stamp
- Black Ink Pad
- Cellophane Bags
Begin by cutting a strip of gray cardstock to 2 x 8 1/2 inches. Use the Angled Tag Topper punch from Stampin’ Up! and punch both ends of the strip.
Add white eyelets to the hole on both ends of the strip. It has been forever since I used eyelets, and I forgot how fun they are plus the fun finished look they provide.
Fold the strip in half. On the bottom of the front side of the card, stamp your sentiment. This is an optional step, but I just love that attention to detail.
Here are the necklace cards so far.
The next step is to cut slits in the card so there is a place for the chain to hand from.
For the template, use 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.
Take the smallest hole on your eyelet setter tool and punch two small circles in the card to hold the chain in place without wrinkling the card.
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.
Tie the front and the back of the card together with a piece of white ribbon. This beautiful gift is now all ready to give.
This simple necklace card would work for many types of necklaces. Whether it is DIY jewelry or it simply needs a nice card to be presented in.
