My Mermaid Amulet! What will you make?

Hi friends! Sometimes I am just playing with supplies and I feel a bit of magic happen. Old supplies mix with new and fun things happen. That is how I felt when I made this:

I love funky jewelry. I had a box of 100 small kraft jewelry boxes from our sponsor Papermart and I wanted to do something different with them. They are really rugged and I thought they would make cool shadowbox necklaces. I went with a beach theme but you can do whatever you like with the supplies you have on hand. You can use mini photos to make more of a locket too! Watch the video to see how I made mine.

I can think of dozens of themes for these necklaces all using the vintage stuff I have collected over the years. How about you, are you going to try ┬ásomething similar? I hope you do and share pics over on Facebook. Oh, and I’d love it if you pinned this idea on Pintrest and shared it on your favorite social media, sharing is caring! Thanks for stopping b and til next time happy crafting!
