Scrabble tile pendants tutorial

Here's something I've wanted to do for a while, so today I decided to try it :)
Scrabble tile pendants look great and are inexpensive to make. The materials used for them aren't too hard to find, I got mine off ebay. The best thing about them is that the pendants can have absolutely anything on them; photos, artwork, magazine cuttings etc.


You will need:
  • Adhesive
  • 1 Inch square epoxy stickers
  • 1 Inch square wooden tile
  • A bail
  • Decorative paper/artwork/photo of your choice


Cut an epoxy sticker from the sheet, leaving the film on it to prevent any dust from sticking to it.




Place the sticker on your chosen image, be very careful not to touch the back of the sticker whilst doing this. Press down on the sticker to remove air bubbles.



Cut around the sticker. Be careful not to cut the actual sticker itself.




Using a strong adhesive, attach the image to a wooden tile, it probably won't be a perfect fit but that doesn't matter.




Use the adhesive to attach a bail to the tile.





And that's it :) These pendants look best on a ball chain.
