Flashback! Washer Necklace Tutorial

So this is from my old blog (before it became private) Enjoy!

I made necklaces for my friends and family this Christmas. I thought these would make great teacher gifts, Valentines for special friends or for bday parties. They were so easy that I can see myself making many more of these. All it takes is some washers, modge podge, and a hard coating…( I can not remember the name but will update later with it) and you have an instant gift! These took me 45min to make all of them.
I don’t think I have ever taken the time to realize how satisfying it is to make something to give. There is a certain pieces of pride that goes along with each gift along with appreciation for those who have gone before you. Know what I mean? Anyways if you would like to make them here is the tutorial I wrote for my other blog, and craftster; so I thought I would share it with you guys!

I found the washers at home depot from 13-38 cents, the ones with the larger holes work better.
Things you need

Paper of your choice Mod Podge Glossy Accents Washer Twine to put on it when it is done.
Step one:

Trace washer on the paper then cut it out.

Step Two:Mod Podge it by adding a layer of glue to both the washer and paper. Then put the two together and add a thin layer of mod podge on the paper.

Step Three: Put a thick layer of Glossy Accents on the washer.

Let it dry for 24 hours and then string it up and you have great gift.

I can not wait to see what everyone comes up with.!
