  3. Use a craft knife to trim away the extra paper. Then carefully trim out the hole in the center of the washer.
  4. Apply Modge Podge Dimensional Magic around the outer edge and around the hole in the middle. Then fill in the space between, too. Allow to dry for at least 3 hours.
  5. Adhere a coordinating paper to the other side of the washer.

  8. Apply the Modge Podge Dimensional Magic, the same as before, and allow to dry for at least 3 hours.
  9. Determine how long you want the necklace to be and cut the cording. Fold the cording in half, put the loop through the center of the washer and then bring the ends through the loop. Now put the ends through the center of the washer.
  10. Use a lighter to melt the ends of the cording, to prevent fraying. Then add beads and knot the ends.
