Crafting Innovation: Glitzy Cardstock Collar Necklace

Crafting Innovation: Glitzy Cardstock Collar Necklace

Collar necklaces are the height of fashion at the moment, looking best when paired with a collared shirt. The necklace simply sits underneath the shirt collar to add a focal piece to your outfit. The main characteristic of a collar necklace is that it sits flat against your body — instead of dangling down. It’s fair to say that the guests at Create & Craft bring you the best crafting innovation out there, and it’s apparent in Carley Duff’s little number. Carley proves that dies don’t have to just be used for traditional papercrafting, like making cards or scrapbooking. Instead, she has made a glitzy collar necklace from cardstock! Yep, you read that correctly — a cardstock necklace. Here’s how to make it!

Just look at the exquisite detail throughout this make. Better yet, Carley’s necklace is pretty versatile. Embellish the piece with glitter and gems for a glamorous accompaniment to your New Year’s Eve party outfit, or colour with paints and inks to coordinate with everyday clothing. You don’t have to die-cut the die in white cardstock, either. Mix it up and use patterned, glittered or foiled cardstock for a quick and simple necklace design. All you’d need extra is a lovely coordinating ribbon to tie the collar around your neck. There are so many creative possibilities!

You Will Need:


1. Cut 3 lace neck collars from white 300gsm cardstock.

2. Layer each die-cut on top of one another with Everyday Essentials Glue.

3. Next, apply a layer of glue on top and add glitter.

4. Add gems, ribbon, and embellishments.

5. Now you’re ready to sparkle in style!
