I made this necklace for my twin sister. Its made of two Dr. Pepper cans. I still need to string it, but I was wanting to back it with something (my sister says it will break because of how small it is?) any suggestions? We got the design off of a necklace on Tatty Devine


Thanx

I love dr. pepper!!!!  really neat idea...  I wonder if you could back it with felt or something so that it also wouldn't irritate her skin....  Hmm.... I'll have to think of some other options...

Sticky sheets of felt would work.

Otherwise, isn't it going to cut her?

Thanx for all the replies, the only problem with felt is that I don't know if I can keep the intricacy. But no I don't think it would cut her the edges aren't too sharp but its always a possibility.

I suggest simply dipping the back on it in glue and letting it harden... That should thicken things up and make the back kind of rubbery....  just a thought.

That might work.  Flip it over & brush a few coats of decoupage on would probably work as well.

Sorry, but I really have no idea how you can do that. I just had to say how awesome that is and that you have one lucky twin.

dip it in resin. it would give it a plasticy thick coat that would last forever, plus it would be durable.
that's what i'd try to do, anyways. but i'm sure decoupaging it would work, too.
