- memory game
- paint and/or ink
- Punch out the chipboard squares of the memory game.
- Cut a piece of scrapbook paper to the same size as a memory game tile, and glue it to the front of the tile.
- Dab a tiny bit of paint on a cotton ball (I used metallic copper); then blot the cotton ball on a paper towel to remove most of the paint. Rub the blotted cotton ball lightly across the surface of the paper. If you use a textured paper, the paint will appear mostly on the higher parts of the texture.
- Give the pendant base an aged look by dabbing a cotton ball on a black or brown ink pad and applying it to parts of the paper.
- To embellish my pendant, I used a plastic leaf button. The button had a loop on the back, which was easily removed with a pair of nail clippers.
- Once the button was glued to the paper, I added a touch of copper paint and black ink to it as well, since the button also had a textured surface.
- Glue a pony bead to the back side of the pendant. Use the bead to string the pendant onto a cord, and it's ready to wear!
