Please take notice of this (earlier mentioned) great idea of Peppermint Plum. I like to share with you how to make a slightly different version: this stamped m&m treat necklace. If you like to read some more about this m&m treat, just go here, here and here.
- a big bag flat (without nuts) m&m's
- small letter stamps
- a decorative stamp like in this nice stamp box of Djeco
- an ink pad
- colorful threads
- colorful ribbon, 3 mm wide
And 4 large paper sheets of traditional Canson Mi-teintes. I used two pieces of light yellow for the backs, one green and one magenta colored sheet for the fronts.
Use different colors for your upper and under thread in your sewing machine. Sew two circles together, in the beginning fixing a double folded piece of ribbon of about 70 cm (or some longer). Leave an opening of about 3 cm.
Enjoy! How the kids will open it is up to them...
