Patchwork pendant with origami paper

I love blogging.  Have I ever mentioned that before?  Maybe three or four times, right? One of the reasons is, because of this phenomenal community of bloggers, the latest and greatest news gets shared.
  Through my friends,  Jenn at Rook No.17, and Carol at The Answer is Chocolate, I found out about WholePort's Creativity Expo.  All I did was request one of the free choices of  a crafting supply sample.

  My choice was some fantastic origami paper. All I had to do, was a make a great project from the sample. This is what I made with it...

These are papers that they sent to me...

I punched rectangles out of the two papers on the left hand side for my pendant.

Using Mod Podge, I carefully put them in place.  After letting the Mod Podge dry, I trimmed the excess and sanded around the edges.  Then I added about three coats of Dimensional Magic--being sure to let each coat dry thoroughly in between.

I'm posting this on WholePort's facebook page.  If I get enough "likes" for my project, I could win some money to spend on their site! That would be sweet. 

Check me out over there when you have the chance--thanks!



  1. Oh wow, that turned out so fun! What a great idea!! I'm gonna head on over there now and vote for it!

  2. So awesome!!! I'm still in disbelief that they sent this stuff out free! And their prices are great anyway.

  3. Christine, it came out so beautifully! So creative, original, and gorgeous!

  4. So pretty! 3 coats of Dimensional stuff? wow... I'm surprised you had the patience to wait 3 times! I bet it's really glossy and smooth....

  5. Oh I so so so love that paper! So I can just do a search for WholePort's and find them???

    Christine, yours is definitely one of my very favorite entries in the Creativity Expo. It doesn't look like they've posted it to their gallery of entries though. Even though I'm in the contest myself, I really want to vote for your project. Have you contacted them?

    Thank you for being a part of "A Little Birdie Told Me..."!



I won't deny it, I love comments! Thanks...
