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 resin paper jewelry with just a few steps. (and a little bit of leftover resin is all it takes for this project)
Step 1: Select your design
I used a one-inch hole punch to cut out interesting designs from my collection of scrapbooking papers.
Then using a 1/16 inch hole punch, I 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.
Step 2: Apply resin
I had leftover Resin Obsession crystal doming 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.
Step 3: Finish papers
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.
Enjoy your finished resin paper jewelry!
Imagine the possibilities!

Eager to get started with resin but confused where to start? I hear you. It happened to me too when I started creating with resin fourteen years ago. It’s why I wrote the book, Resin Fundamentals. It condenses everything you need to know about resin into an easy-to-follow book that you can read this afternoon. Buy now and you can download it in minutes!
