Welcome to the
Disney Pixar Blog Hop!
If you love Disney Pixar and crafting, you've come to the right place! We have an entire month of fun planned for you, with a new group of crafting bloggers every Saturday in June.
If you came here from Jenny's blog, then you are in the right place. If you just happened upon this Blog Hop, make sure to head over to Shawn's blog so that you see the full hop from the very beginning.
Here is my Very Special Project I made for my granddaughter, Charlotte, who is over-the-moon enthusiastic (like most kids!) about Disney's newest release, "Frozen".
I made Charlotte this Anna & Elsa necklace:
To make this necklace, I used Close To My Heart's new line of wearable art, including the pendant, glass dome and chain.
Here is a link to the CTMH Base & Bling Wearable Crafts page:
I printed out a cropped image from an advertisement for the movie, onto photo sticker paper. Once the art was adhered to the pendant base, I smoothed a layer of Liquid Glass onto the back of the glass dome and adhered the dome to the photograph. To the back of the pendant, I applied "ice cubes" (as Charlotte calls them) -- a one-inch square clipped piece of adhesive rhinestone resin from The Buckle Boutique.
Now that we have front row/center seats for the upcoming "Disney on Ice - Frozen" show, playing after Christmas in Philadelphia, and Charlotte has her Elsa dress, I'll have to make a few more "Frozen" charms for Charlotte's necklace.
So now, let me move you back on through the fantastic Disney Hop. But, before you go, make sure to sign up to win some AMAZING PRIZES from our sponsors! Our sponsors for this hop include:

I've gotten many requests on information on how to make your own charm(s) for the special children in your life. Here's what I used, and links on where to purchase the supplies:
First, I Googled the image and cropped one I liked from an advertisement to 1" square, using PicMonkey (shown at right). Bear in mind that using any image you find this way is still subject to copyright protections, including what can be considered "fair use" and "for personal use."
Print and trim the image to 1" square. I used photo paper to protect the image's colors from running under the glue.
Your shopping list should include:
Pendant frames: Style #Z1962 (Faux Silver), $4.95 for 3
Pendant glass domes: Style #Z1967 (Square), $1.95 for 3
Liquid glass adhesive: Style #Z679, $6.95
Optional: Matching Faux Silver Chain, 30" , Style #Z1940, $5.95 each
To make the charm: Trim the image to 1" square. Place a small (3/8") dot of Liquid Glass to the flat side of one square glass dome. Smooth the Liquid Glass over the entire FLAT surface of the glass piece, taking care not to get any bubbles in the glue. This should be a thin, smooth coating.
Carefully line up the glued flat surface over the printed Anna & Elsa image, and then place the glass piece of the image straight down -- without rocking, sliding or otherwise smudging the glass over the image, to prevent the ink from transferring and smearing. Set aside and let dry. After the charm is dry (about 40 minutes), trim any excess paper off of the image so that there is none hanging over the edge of the glass piece.
Now put a generous 1/2" dot of Liquid Glass into the recessed area of the charm. Center the image/glass piece over the glue, so that Anna and Elsa are right-side-up, under the bezel of the charm. Push the glass piece onto the glue with a firm hand-grip. If any Liquid Glass oozes out, be sure to wipe the top of the glass cover clean, using a baby wipe, before the Liquid Glass dries. The charm will be dry and ready-to-wear in about 30 minutes.
Now it's time for you to head over to Tami's blog.
The full hop line up for this week is below in case you get lost along the way. . .
Be sure to come back to visit the Disney Pixar Blog Hop EVERY Saturday in June. Each day's starts with Shawn Mosch; she will post a list of each week's participants on each Saturday. (I'll be back on June 21 with another super Disney project!)
