Max with cupcake design was cut out and adhered to a printed paper background. Circle pendant with cupcake is printed paper with glitter added. Rectangle pendant is washi paper.  

 

Directions

Carefully trace around your pendant blank to get a pattern for the insert. Trim as necessary and check the fit. TIP: Save this pattern for future projects.

 

Trace the pattern onto the wrong side of the paper with a pencil. Cut out and place inside the pendant blank to check the fit again. Trim as necessary.

 

Decorate your paper as desired or leave blank if you just want the printed design. If you are stamping a design, test any inks and/or coloring media to make sure that the colors will not run when it gets wet from the Glossy Accents.

 

Use a small piece of double stick tape on the back and adhere to the pendant blank. Place the pendant onto a flat surface. Carefully squeeze some Glossy Accents into the piece. NOTE: Remember not to shake the Glossy Accents bottle to avoid air bubbles.

 

You can add some fine glitter or small beads if you want. Continue filling the piece with Glossy Accents. Use the sharp in point to pop any air bubbles. Set aside to dry. The Glossy Accents will dry clear.
