It felt like a million degrees outside on Saturday, so I decided to stay in and do some crafting. I had found a Mexican matching game that had the best largish square tiles that I thought would be perfect to alter to hang onto a LONG chain.
I started with the text from the pages of a 1920s spelling primer. I covered the entire tile and sides, too. I then inked the edges to age it a bit more. I then rubber stamped the image of a very old typewriter. On the other side I added a bit of lace.
I used Mod Podge to seal it all down.
I went to Friday for the Arts on Friday evening and bought a necklace from my artsy buddy, Rose. She put it in the prettiest little bag and I saved it. I thought it would be perfect to cover another tile.
I again covered the entire tile and then added a bit of lace and a vintage flower button. I left the back as it as I liked the design.
I really like them both. I will test them out later this week on a really long chain.
What have you made from your trash lately?
