More Trash to Treasure

Last Friday, at my Stampin' Up team meeting, we celebrated Heidi's (our leader) birthday. Of course, since we're a crafty bunch there were lots of hand made cards and gifts. My contribution was a necklace with two pendants. I did all the beading, and made the pendants from small game pieces. I covered them with some old sheet music, colored the paper with glimmer mist, and did a little wire wrapping. Then I tried something new to finish them off and protect them. I dipped them in Mod Podge....a little drippy and took forever to dry, but there are no brush strokes, and the finish is nice and thick and glossy.
Here is a close up of the altered game pieces:
By the way, the sheet music is from Snow White. The first piece has the word "some", the second has "will come." As in, "some day my prince will come." Makes me smile. But, lucky Heidi actually has found a prince.
