Quick Craft: Paper Necklaces

My daughter has been asking me to make her a necklace and I had the chance to experiment with paper and waxed cotton cord to make her one. My daughter’s favorite color is turquoise and I stuck with that color to make sure she likes them! I listed the materials I used at the bottom of this post ;) Have you made any necklaces or jewelry lately? For me, I’ve barely delved making a few pieces with one or two tools and an “adjustable knot” technique with charms. For these two necklaces I used 2 shapes of birds made out of white chip board. I cut these at Ben Franklin’s die cut center and the possibilities are endless! I need way more hours in the day to craft ;)

Thank you for reading and as always, I can’t wait to hear from you!
