4th of July Necklace

Cyndi of Lovely Lula Here. It’s coming up on Independence Day and that means this crafting girl needs something red, white and blue to wear. I used the cartridge Just a Note embedded in the Cricut expression 2: 5th Anniversary Edition to cut pin wheels out of while shrink plastic, colored them red and blue with Sharpie markers. I used a hole punch to make a hole in the centers and shrunk them. I also create circles and gears in this same fashion. I used T-Shirt yarn, braided and knotted to make the “chain” part of the necklace.

Happy 4th of July!

Happy crafting xoxo Cyndi aka Lovely Lula.Ā  Follow me on Twitter I am Lab5.
