Mini Leather Book Necklace!
This is perfect for this Beauty and the Beast week!
I love mini books.
What book do you think Belle is reading?Internet speculation thinks either Aladdin or Sleeping Beauty...what do you think?
Lots of people think Aladdin because it was the next animated movie that Disney released.
And the "Prince in disguise" thing...
I made these into 2 necklaces, so they can be worn stacked or individually.
Here's a video of the process...following step by step pictures!
You could actually use these as little journals!
12 mini sheets of paper (2 by 1.5 inches)
Thick needle and thread
pin or small awl
Piece of leather scrap, about 1/8th inch taller and wider than the paper
Poke from the outside of the crease to the inside of the fold.
then back through the other.
Tie a nice square knot.
The spine of a book needs to have space to allow for opening, so practice by wrapping the
leather around the paper and make sure there is enough leather to open it.
And just on the 2 sides of the leather.
No glue on the spine area.
Let the glue dry.
Leaving the gap on the spine.
(I love a 27 inch chain...the short one is 16 inches)
Gold jump rings
and perhaps a tassel
(all of these are available on Oriental Trading's jewelry making section)
just about 1/8th inch from the edge.
Fill them to your hearts content!
