Being the Mom to a couple of teenagers our life could not move forward without ipods and itunes so as a result we have numerous itunes gift cards. These cards are particularly brightly colored and my daughter Ivy and I got to thinking......We made heart charms that came out so cute and were super easy, fast and fun!
These are a few of the cards we had, any plastic gift card would work.
We cut each card into 8 squares.
Then using just regular scissors, cut the heart shapes. I cut them free form as I think they look cool a little uneven.
Then we "sanded" them with a basic nail file. When the hearts got roughed up they
took on a whole new look!
Just punch a hole in one corner with a basic craft small hole punch.
Add a jump ring.
We added a little glass seed bead on a head pin for an accent color.
Put it on a chain and you're done!!
Too cute! Great for a party activity. Go crazy, make two for earrings,
cut different shapes, maybe squares that link together for a bracelet!
