Guest Post: Cute Dog Tags with Scrapbook paper

Last week I guest posted this on http://ready-set-create.blogspot.com.  Thanks Aleesha!  Here is my cute Dog Tags that I Mod Podged scrapbook paper on with some adorable embellishments!  Super easy and FUN!!

Here is what you will need:
-Dog tag (purchased HERE)
-Mod Podge
-a piece of pretty patterned scrapbook paper
-craft knife
-self-healing cutting surface
-glue gun
-paper flower or whatever you want to embellish your necklace with!
-emery board
-ribbon or ball chain

Here we go!  First put your dog tag down on the wrong side of the scrapbook paper and trace around it like this:
Next, cut it out with the craft knife, being careful not to rip the paper.
Then, slap some mod podge all over the wrong side of the paper and glue that baby on the dog tag, matching up edges. Let it dry for about 1/2 hour.  Then add a letter sticker for whoever you are making it for.  Add some more mod podge on the top of the paper once you have attached the paper to the dog tag.
OOOh, love that nice blue mat!  Yes, it has been well used.

Let the mod podge dry for at least 1-2 hours.  Then using an emery board, sand gently around the edges, making sure you are working down, so not to lift the paper off the dog tag. 

Next add embellishments!  I added a paper flower with a pink round pearl in the center.OOPSEY!! I couldn't tell where the glue was going.  It's hard to take picture's while you are crafting:) You get the idea, right?

Here is the finished necklace!  I used a pink ball chain that I purchased HERE
Here's another one I made.
