Washer Charms

I found this project at thecreativecrate.blogspot.com. They have a video you can watch. First you have to find a washer; I went in the sacred place "The Garage". My husband does not need to know I was in his garage, but he has plenty of washers. The ones I found were 1 1/4" wide with a 1/2" center. I placed the washer on the paper and traced around it. I cut the outside first just inside the lines, then I punched a hole in the center and very slowly with baby cuts, I cut the center out. With my finger I rubbed a small amount of Mod Podge onto the washer, place the paper on the washer and rub more Mod Podge on top of the washer. The paper will wrinkle up and look terrible, but it will flatten out, just leave it alone and let it dry. After it dried, about a day, I took some brown ink and inked the edges. I took the Glossy Accents (dimensional goo) and spread it on top of the washer. This will give it that bubble look. I did the same technique on the wood disc. I should have drilled a hole in it before I put the dimensional goo on it. I'll just put a magnet on the back and stick it on the fridge. I think I'll hang it on the Frienship bracelet I made or maybe I'll try to print on paper and then stick it on a washer.
