Photo Locket How-To
Keepsake lockets make lovely gifts for Valentine's Day, and even for wedding or shower gifts. Use a new locket, or search for unusual lockets at thrift stores and flea markets.
- Heavyweight paper
- Photo locket
- Jump ring
- Card stock
- Micro hole punch
Start by making a template for the photo: Press a piece of paper into the locket opening, and score around the edge with a pencil. Cut it out, slide it in, and resize it as needed.
Print the desired photo on heavyweight printer paper. Use template to cut photo to size, then slide into locket.
Add a jump ring, and thread with cord. For a valentine, choose an image that can incorporate the locket (such as by attaching it to a baby's hand or placing it on an artist's easel). Print it on card stock, make a hole with a micro punch, and tie the cord through it.
