Elephant pin

Good morning and thanks for coming to see another post for Sakura Hobby and Craft by me.  Today I want to show you how you can make your own pendant and making it look like it's under glass.  First I took an empty eyeshadow container and cleaned it out real good.  Remember to recycle as much as you can!!!  
I broke the case so that I could get the metal piece out.
and here it is.
Then I printed off a picture that I really liked (remember I am an elephant fanatic) and cut it down to size to fit snugly into the metal frame.
I then filled it with 3d crystal lacquer
and let it dry for about 24 hours.  It wasn't quit dry in time for the post, but the cloudiness will disappear, I promise.  Make sure not to touch it cuz you may leave a fingerprint...don't ask how I know this. 
I think I might put a pin back onto this and pin it to my jacket.

Don't forget you still have a few days to use the coupon terri04 to get 20% off of the crystal lacquer.

I hope you've enjoyed my little project and hope to see you again soon.  You can always find me here too.
As always, have a great day and God Bless.


  1. GREAT JOB Brenda & great recycling project indeed! THANKS for sharing!

  2. WOW - I never thought of that, it would make a great container unit for crafting. Love the image you choose.
