How to Make a Mini Book Pendant Necklace Gift for Dad on Fathers Day
CRAFTS MATERIALS NEEDED:
- 5 jump rings
- perforating pliers
First we draw pages as rectangles of 2.5 cm x 3 cm. Make as many as you want. I made 16.
Cut them out.
Take one page and measure it on leather to make the covers. Allow the cover to be slightly bigger than the page.
Cut the covers out.
Put the two covers one over the other.
Using the perforating pliers make 4 holes on one side.
Place one cover over a page …
… and mark the holes.
Use again the perforating pliers to make holes on the marks.
Do the same for all the pages.
Using pliers put an open jump ring through the first hole of one cover.
Add a page…
… then the others…
… and finally the second cover.
Close the jump ring.
Put the other jump rings through the holes…
… like this.
Put another jump ring through the first one and close it. We will use it to tie the cord on it.
Take the cord and fold it in half.
Place the loop through jump ring…
… then bring the ends through the loop.
Pull the cord to tighten the knot.
Now open the book and write what you want inside.
I wrote “Best dad ever !”
And this is the book pendant .
