How to make scrapbooking papers into resin jewelry
I don’t scrapbook, but somehow find myself drawn to that section of the craft store whenever I’m in there. I love the colors and patterns of the papers and thought it was a shame that they couldn’t be jewelry. Until now.
You can easily make scrapbooking decorative papers into wearable jewelry with just a little resin. (and a little bit of leftover resin is all it takes for this project)
I used a one inch hole punch to cut out interested designs from my collection of scrapbooking papers.
Using a 1/16 inch hole punch, I then punched a hole in the papers for the jump rings or earrings. You will want to make sure to leave enough of a margin between the hole and the edge of the paper so that your finding will not pull through. Note: You can always wait to punch your holes later, but I wanted to go ahead and punch the holes as a guide. That way, I knew I was going to be happy with their placement before I brushed them with resin.
By the way, I had these papers punched and ready to go for the next time I had leftover resin, which was actually a couple of days.
I had leftover Castin’ Craft Easy Cast epoxy resin for this tutorial. I used a brush to apply a thin layer of resin to each side of the paper. You will then need to leave them on a piece of wax paper to cure.
Once cured at least 24 hours, peel the resin papers off the wax paper. Trim up edges with scissors as needed.
Not shown: Use a hole punch to go back through the pilot holes already made.
Add the appropriate findings to your resin papers.
Imagine the possibilities!
