tutorial: recycled magazine jewelry…

 

 

(As you can see, my first attempt at making these was a real big fail!
I adapted this tutorial to get my final result)

 

  • Step 1: Tear out magazine pages.(make sure they are the brightness that you are looking for in your coil.

  • Step 2 and 3: Fold them in half length wise, and then in half again (this is the part I adapted because I found that folding them in half created a bulkier strip than I desired)

  • Step 4: Cut the page along the folds

  • Step 5: Fold the strips in half length wise, and then in half again.

(make sure your folds are tight.  At this point you will need to heat up your glue gun)

 

  • Step 6: Get a toothpick and begin to coil the end of the magazine around the toothpick tightly, just enough to start the coil. (This is the part that I adapted because I found that a wooden skewer was too fat)

 

  • Step 7: Remove the toothpick and begin to coil the strip with out fingers, winding it tightly. When you are finished hot glue gun the edge down.

  • Step 8: Start with another strip and hot glue it down to the edge of the previous coil.  Repeat until you have the desired size of flower.

  • Step 9: Cut out a circle (a little bit smaller than your flower) out of felt.  Hot glue gun the eye pin and the felt on the back of the flower.

  • Step 10: Admire your recycled magazine pendant!

  6. I needed to send you the bit of word to help give thanks the moment again just for the superb guidelines you have shown above. It’s wonderfully generous with you to deliver openly just what most of us could have offered for an e book to get some cash on their own, most importantly considering that you might well have tried it in the event you desired. The techniques as well served to become a great way to fully grasp that most people have similar passion the same as mine to find out way more with regard to this problem. I am certain there are several more pleasurable occasions up front for those who look over your blog post.
