A little tutorial on how to make a pendant using a chipboard button, an embossing folder and Perfect Pearls powders.

The chipboard buttons are from the Tando Creative buttons grab bag, the embossing folder is So Trendy M-Bossabilities by Spellbinder and I used Patina Blue, Patina Green and Pewter Perfect Pearls by Ranger on the square button pendant, Copper, Bronze and Gold on the round one.

If you follow the video and would like to have a go yourself, here's a checklist you can copy and print out for reference as you work:

1. Colour a chipboard button black with something permanent (eg Copic marker or acrylic paint). Do the edges as well as both sides and allow to dry thoroughly.

2. Emboss the button with a folder and your die cutting machine. Folders with small patterns work best on pieces of this size.

3. Dab embossed piece lightly with Versamark and brush on Perfect Pearls colours. Repeat if you want to intensify colour in any areas.

4. Spritz with water to fix the Perfect Pearls. Allow to dry.

5. Cut a length of bamboo skewer that is slightly longer than the two holes in the button. Add colour with a Copic marker and some Perfect Pearls if desired.

6. Attach a chain by threading from the back of the button up through the first hole, wrap round the skewer (I went round twice) and back down through the hole. Come up through the second hole, wrap round the skewer and go back down through the hole. Juggle the two ends as necessary by easing through the holes and round the skewer so you get even lengths of chain each side.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
