Some of you may know my birthday is coming up...(in 13 days, to be exact).
I've been looking around for fun ideas for my 40th Fiesta - here's my Pinterest board.
I wanted something special to wear, like jewelry.
I'm not a flashy jewelry person. I like simple, classic & unique.
I'm loving hand stamped, washer-style pendants.
In fact, I made some for Mother's Day a few years ago.*
While searching online for my own hand stamped cutie, I decided to try making one (again).
*my first attempt left me frustrated & needing to wash out my mouth with soap.
This time went much better.
Here's what I started with.
I got my stamp set here. The washers came from Lowes (~$1.20/3)
Oh, grab a Sharpie too!
I picked 9/16th size washers because I liked the size
(and I had lots of letters to add)
I kind of eyeballed the placement of the letters, that's why they are a little wonky.
After I filled in the letters using the Sharpie..it looked like this
Dampen a paper towel with rubbing alcohol to remove the 'extra' marker
I plan on trying it again, to see if I can even out the names.
And to make better impressions of all the letters.
But you get the idea.
I'll probably hang it on a simple ribbon
(maybe with a bead) and give it to myself as a gift :)
Have a great Tuesday!
