Make a XOXO Necklace with Cricut
Hugs and kisses never go out of style. This pretty necklace features word art cut with the Cricut machine, layered and then finished off with a gold adhesive foil. You could also use the holographic vinyl, or paint on layers of glitter. Make a whole series of these love charms to create a whole new look. I've set up a Cricut Design Space canvas to help get you started. See below for details.
- Cricut Machine
- Cricut Design Space
- XOXO necklace design space canvas
- Pink cardstock
- Gold Adhesive foil
- Mod Podge or glue
- Jewelry findings and tools – jump rings, necklace, pliers
- Safety Pin
- Follow the on-screen instructions to cut the different layers of XOXO word art from both the cardstock and adhesive foil.
- Layer cardstock and Mod Podge or glue to attach the cardstock layers together. Make sure to remove the glue from the tiny holes on each word cut. I use the point of a safety pin for this step. Press the cardstock layers together. Allow to dry.
- If you find there are glue lumps around the edges, just file them down a bit before sealing the charm.
- Apply the adhesive foil. pressing firmly to ensure it adhears well.
- Optionally seal the charm and let dry. I applied a layer of glitter nail polish first and then applied a layer of Mod Podge to seal it all.
- Using the jewelry pliers, add a jump ring through each hole in the charm and then add the necklace.
