Introduction: Magic Mirror Necklace

Step 1: Foil

The main ingredients (?) for this are a mini cameo frame, which you can buy from amazon or a craft shop, and kitchen foil.

Lay the foil over the frame and press down with your fingers to make a crease where the edge if the picture bit is, then get a biro and draw on the non-shiny side.

(I accidentally drew on the shiny side the first time, but i cut out the foil roughly and trimmed it to fit so it wasn't as good as the second one anyway).

If you are writing mirror mirror on the wall like me, or another message, remember you need to write in mirror writing for it to be forwards when you stick it in. If you aren't comfortable writing backwards, you could draw something, like hands trying to get out would be cool, or write it on paper and trace it onto the back so you can just copy the letters. It might help.

Step 2: Glueing

Carefully cut it out.

Put it on a smooth flat surface and firmly rub your fingers over it to smooth it out. The writing will still be there but it should look smoother and just better.

Then glue it onto the frame. I used PVA with a brush because i only have a small end superglue which i was worried would make lumps, but it seems fine. Nail glue would probably be good because its strong and has a brush.

Leave it for a few hours to dry.

Step 3: Finishing

Put a jump ring on the frame and thread it onto cord or a chain. Then put crimpers on the ends and a clasp.

Necklace is finished :D

Of course, you don't have to have it as a necklace, it can be a keyring or earrings or anything you want. Thanks for reading i hope you like it

Cool! I like the imprinted effect on the foil. I'm not familiar with a "biro". Is that some kind of pen?

Ballpoint pen, sorry
