Repurposed Vogue Magazine Cover Craft #2 : Necklace and Lapel Pin

This post is Part #2 of repurposing a coffee table book of early 1900’s Vogue Magazine covers.  I decided there might be a market for vintage Vogue items because vintage Vogue Magazines are a hot seller on Ebay.  These items are vintage Vogue with a modern twist!

I tore this page from the coffee table book and set aside the VOGUE at the top to use for my necklace idea.

I wanted to give an “artsy” feel to the lapel pin so I gave her a cool blunt cut.  LOL.

Use a glue stick that works on metal, then you don’t have to worry about the image lifting from the edges OR bubbling when you apply the sealer on the top.

After she was finished, I added a sassy black earring!

Using a glue stick formulated for metal, I attached the V O G U E letters to copper ArtEmboss and punched a hole in the top of each letter to attach to the necklace chain. Next, I punched holes in the bottoms to attach beads.

I tried to space the letters so they would still spell “Vogue” when the necklace is being worn.   Two Vogue Magazine crafts down, next post will be my final Vogue Magazine cover idea!

THIS NECKLACE IS LISTED IN MY ETSY SHOP!
