Las Vegas Charms

I am taking a scrapbook with me on my holiday of a lifetime holiday to Las Vegas so I thought I would make a charm for it to attach to one of the rings in its binder and one for Lucy to put on her keying or whatever …..

I found a suitable map image on Google and shrank it down and printed it off  to fit two of the 1in x 1in glass squares/tiles, that I bought years ago.  I’ve done a quick search and they are easy to find on e-bay and etsy … and not too expensive.

I gave the tiles a light coat of Rangers Glossy Accents, as it dries clear and the finish is usually quite smooth, and stuck it onto the image, leaving them to dry overnight.

Once dry I cut a square of thin silver mirror card on the back to give it a more professional finish and a silver bale, jump ring and lobster claw fitting that can be attached to all manner of things …..
