Guest Post : CrafTreat Decoupage Papers

Hello Lovely Friends,

This is second part of my Guest Post using CrafTreat products. Today I will sharing some ideas on using decoupage papers for jewelry making. I have used decoupage papers for the first time and believe me its very easy to work with them as compared to napkins.

The first decoupage paper that I have used is called "Steam Punk". All the four papers that comes in this pack are well suitable if you are planning to make decoupage jewelry boxes, organizers or jewelry itself.

Truly speaking I had pretty hard time figuring out how to use these beautiful papers as I was not interested in using them on wooden boxes n similar articles. I only wanted jewelry with these. So after a month (almost) of thinking, I came up with this idea. Lets have a look at the pendant which I have made using one of the papers -

These are four papers of this pack, I have used third paper for my jewelry piece.

I handcut the shapes. I planned to layer them so utilized incomplete gear from the paper 

Then to I used cardstock stack and glued these shapes on top. You can use wood, plastic, thin metal anything instead of cardstock

Next I took a mdf circle, colored it on both sides

Lastly I arranged all the pieces, glued them and completed my necklace with beads and chains. (please ignore my wire wrapping :) ) Have applied modpodge to seal . Look at the detail on every piece. I loved this paper !!!!

Next paper that I have used is "Metal". All the four papers have faded and rustic look. These papers are so perfect that you do not need any paint, inks to achieve distressed, rustic look. I have made jewelry with all the four papers. I have used metal lying in my stash as my base for sticking decoupage papers. 

This is the "Metal" Decoupage Papers I have used -

And here is the pair of earring I have made -

Look at the rustic effect on papers :)

A Pendant made using faded n distressed jeans type paper of the pack -

And lastly I have made a reversible pendant using remaining two papers -
This one is one side of the pendant -

And this is another side of the reversible pendant -

Both the sides together -

So thats end my long post here. I hope I have inspired you in some way. Do let me know how you find my jewelry ideas. 

Thanks for stopping by :)
Have a happy & blessed 2018 !!!
