Paper Circle Necklace

Last week I went to a workshop in Coventry and whilst there I saw a paper circles necklace it was amazing. I emailed the lady who made it for instructions but whilst waiting for a reply a thought I would give it a go and try to make it myself, so on Friday night at Ilkeston Dabblers the lovely Alyson and wonderful Jaqui punched hundreds of paper circles out for me using 3 SU circle punches sizes 1-1/4", 1" and 3/4"  and 3 different SU A4 card colours Perfect Plum, Pale Plum and Mellow Moss, the ribbon is also SU 1/4" Grosgrain in Elegant Eggplant. Then I spent the next few days trying to find the time to punch a hole in the middle of each one. When they were all finally done I threaded them onto Tiger Tail and made this necklace.

I'm not sure how many circles it took I'd have to count them but I love it and it is so light weight, just don't wear it whilst it's raining which is every day at the moment!! 

I was just so proud of it I thought I would share it with you all.

Bye for now

Hi Chris,
I used the first circle I pierced a hole in as a template for the others. Then just line the circles up and pierce through the hole into another circle etc...
Thankyou for commenting
