 Why not make a necklace.
Things You Need.
  1. Scrap Leather * Hobby Lobby in the leather section a whole package of scraps for $6.00

 Making a template.
Measure your paper about 2 inches wide and about 6 inches long.

 Fold your paper in half
 Mark diagonal lines with your ruler
different widths.

 Cut on your lines.
on the last one make a cut out the middle
 Line them up the way you want
 place them on your leather scrap and trace with a pencil.
 Cut them out with an x-acto knife and a ruler.
 Use your hole punch and punch your holes.
 Add your large jump rings and about a half of an inch of chain between each piece.

Measure about 24 inches of chain
Run the chain through the top jump rings.
I added rhinestone to my necklace( optional)

Add one medium jump to your clasp and add that to your chain.
Add the other medium jump ring to the large jump ring.
Add the medium jump ring to the other side of your chain. ( the large jump ring is where the clasp will hook to.)
