Step One: Stamp flamingo. Hit once dead center. DO NOT LIFT. Tilt upper right, hit. Tilt upper left, hit. Tilt lower right, hit. Tilt lower left, hit.
Step Two: Stamp heart. Hit once!
Step Three: Tape blank down. Stamp “think” using the Deco font. Start in the center with the letter “i”, then stamp to each side.
Step Four: Remove tape, stamp “PINK” using the Lollipop font around lower half of blank on edge as shown. It helps to turn the blank as you stamp, keeping the letter you are stamping centered as you go.
Step Five: Apply enamel and paint with a cotton swab.
Step Six: Wipe clean with a paper towel. Make sure you wipe so you don’t mix the colors in the stamped areas. (Add pink to the first blank you stamped, wipe off excess.)
Step Seven: Use a ruler and a non-permanent marker to mark the placement of the hearts. Start by marking the center top to bottom and side to side. Then make evenly spaced marks for a total of 16.
Step Eight: Stamp hearts as shown, turn the blank as you stamp. Add pink and black paint to hearts with cotton swab, alternating colors. Wipe off excess with a paper towel. Wipe towards edge so you don’t mix colors.
Step Nine: Use the 2-hole punch to pierce the circle and washer blanks.
Step Ten: Add paint and enamel to washer using cotton swabs. Wipe off excess towards edge with a paper towel. Be careful not to mix the paints.
Step Eleven: (You can add some texture to the edge of the washer blank with a chasing hammer.) Connect all three layered blanks using a jump ring.
Step Twelve: Wrap twine around smallest end of tassel tool.
Step Tbirteen: Use the second length of twine to secure the twine. Thread it into the opening on the top of the tool, wrap, knot.
Step Fourteen: Remove tassel from tool, continue wrapping. Knot and add a dab of glue to knot to secure. Smooth twine ends down into tassel. Trim ends with scissors.
Step Fifteen: Thread a jump ring into the top of the tassel, secure closed with pliers.
Step Sixteen: Thread the pendant and the tassel on your chain.
