DIY Valentine's Day Card Locket Necklace
This necklace is new to my shop, and perfect for Valentine's Day. A miniature envelope locket holds a miniature Valentine's Day card. I designed the card on PicMonkey. The lovely envelope locket is available at Wholeport.
1 envelope locket
16 inches of chain (I used red for Valentine's Day)
Light Weight Card stock
Clear Packing Tape
1 "made with love" heart lock and key charm (optional)
Make a Valentine card. You may personalize it as much as you like. You can make one by hand or design it on PicMonkey, like I did. My card reads "I am leaving my heart with you". There are thousands of free printable Valentine's day cards on the web too. The important thing to remember is you will need to shrink the card down, to fit in your envelope locket, approximately 18x12mm. I chose to use packaging tape to laminate the outside only of my card. This way the front of card will be protected, but the inside may still be signed and dated, to further personalize it.
Use your jewelry pliers and jump loops to connect your envelope, chain, and clasp. I also attached a "made with love" heart and key lock charm near the clasp.
Not feeling very crafty, head to my shop TLC Creations, to purchase this necklace instead. My shop recently got a face lift, I would love for you to check it out.
Well that's what I have been up to, what about you? Come share at our weekly Anything Goes linky party.
