(got mine from my MIL’s old sample collection-she is an interior designer)
(find these in at a craft store or etsy!)
1) On one side of your leather piece, pre-draw your angled shape.
Leave enough room on the top to fold over the chain later.
2) Cut out your shape and continue to cut slits along the diagonal sides of your shape (about 1/8 in.) at different lengths.
3. Measure out your chain and attach the jumprings and lobster clasp with a pliers.
4. Turn your piece over, and add liquid stitch (my best friend) along the top edge and fold over the chain at the bottom middle section. Let dry.
You can make your chains different lengths for a tiered necklace look! If you can get your leather swatches from an interior design friend, than the total cost is only the cost of your chain and attachments. Have fun:)
Since this was a party with lots of little ones and double the amount of adults, I focused on having a relaxed and open setting with good food, drinks, and activities on hand:) I wrapped both the food table and kids table with kraft paper (you can buy it by the roll). The kids could use their space to color and it also makes for an easy clean up! Since it was a party for Gabriel AND Veronica, I used Navy, Lime, and Bright Pink as the color theme. I had such a hard time finding these colors in stores (especially navy) so I was thrilled when these shops came through for me! ….
