So you’ve got a collection of scrapbook papers. You love the colors. You love the patterns. And you’ve thought it was a shame that they couldn’t be jewelry until now. Turn your scrapbooking paper into resin jewelry in only a few steps.
(and this is a perfect leftover resin project)
Step 1: Select your design
Use a one-inch hole punch to cut out designs from your collection of scrapbooking papers.
Then, use a 1/16-inch hole punch to put a hole in the papers. Your jump rings will go into this hole. Leave enough margin between the hole and paper edge so that your finding won’t pull through when you wear your resin jewelry.
💡 Pro tip: You can always wait to punch your holes later, but I like adding them before I brush with clear epoxy. That way, I know I’m happy with their placement before coating them with resin.
Step 2: Apply resin
Then, leave them on a piece of wax paper or silicone mat to cure. That will take as least 24 hours.
💡 Pro tip: If you want a glossy finish on both sides, do one side, then let it completely cure before doing the other side.
Step 3: Assemble your jewelry
Add jump rings or other jewelry findings to each resin paper.
Ta-da! You just learned how to turn scrapbooking paper into resin jewelry.
Imagine the possibilities!
⭐️ BONUS: If you’ve got more scrapbook paper you want to use in jewelry, then you’ll love how to use it to make earrings.
