I made this from paper.  I designed the heart in photoshop and cut it out with my wishbade.  I guled 6 layers of paper together with eye pins in between the middle layers (can't see them here) and then used UTEE and silver embosing powder in it to make it shiny and interesting.  Its about 3" across.  I then strung it on some stretch cord with seed beads.

With a heat gun! its Ultra Think Embossing Powder - use it the same as the fine powder stuff but you wanna do several coats. Its more grainy like sand.

Really well done.  I clicked the pic to see your description, because I wanted to see if it was metal or resin or what.  I NEVER thought paper and UTEE, great job! Smiley

That's amazing. I don't really understand the construction, but the finished product is brilliant!
