- 1 inch by 1 inch photo
- Glass tiles (I bought the ones I used from this Etsy shop)
- Exacto knife
- Super glue
- Dimensional adhesive
The first thing I did was to find a close up photo of the kids that still looked good when it was shrunken down to 1 inch by 1 inch. I resized the picture in a Word document. After printing it out, I placed the glass tile over the photo and used an exacto knife to cut around it.
I put a few drops of the dimensional adhesive on the tile and used a toothpick to cover the entire surface. No bubbles!
I carefully put the photo face down on the tile and made sure that the edges were flush with the surface of the tile. Some of the adhesive oozed out and I just used a paper towel to clean it up.
Next I used super glue to attach the bail to the pendant.
And then one more layer of dimensional adhesive to cover the photo.
After making sure that everything was super dry, I put the pendant onto a ball chain. Now I've got my girls with me all the time!
Since this was such an easy project, I made matching pendant necklaces for the three older girls. Now we have a matching set, and they love wearing them.
