Family Jewels

Turn your family portrait into a must-have mom necklace. You get to be proud twice: once for your family on display, and once for making your own pretty jewelry. (Sugar Bee Craft Edition)


What you’ll need:
a glass tile; a bail (that's the hook that goes on the back); family photo; diamond glaze; a small paintbrush; superglue, a chain to hang it on; X-acto knife; and pencil.


Directions:
Take your tile, and trace it onto the back of your photo (you may need to shrink your photo to fit). Then, use an X-acto knife to cut just outside your border. Squirt a pea size of diamond glaze on the back of the tile, and use a small paintbrush to spread it out. While the diamond glaze is still wet, set your photo facedown onto the tile and rub to attach. After five to 10 minutes, squirt diamond glaze on the back of the paper and spread it out with a paintbrush to seal in your paper. Let dry several hours. Finally, use superglue to stick a bail to the back, and a thread a chain through to wear.
