This stuff is incredibly addictive - and that is not just the fumes from the adhesives talking.  I love the origami paper from The Paper Place on Queen West in Toronto, and bought a couple of their scrap packs to make these pendents.  Now I want MOOOOOOORE!!!

My favourite is the red one!

Very nice!  The paper is GORGEOUS!

How did you stick the paper on the tile?  And the bail on?

How did you stick the paper on the tile?  And the bail on?

I used a thin layer of Diamond Glaze to glue the paper to the tile, then a thin layer of the glaze around the edges to seal them (be careful and wipe up or scrape off any drippings).  When that was dry, I put two coats of sealer on the back to seal the back of the paper.  When that was dry, I used Bond (I think it may be Beacon now) 527 glue to attach the bail.  Some people prefer E600 I think.  527 is thinner, but I prefer it myself.

Yes, that is quite a nice little scrap packet - some of the peices are only a fraction of an inch wide, but that is more than sufficient for my needs Cheesy

Oh shush, your package is SEALED already  Grin

The square ones are about 2.2cm square, and the rectangles are 2.2 cm x 4.6 cm long.  Both are 4mm thick.  They had larger sizes, and circles too.

I know this probably sounds silly but where did you buy them, the tiles that is?
