Here is the step-by-step video, where I make a cute Minion version of this necklace! If video isn’t your thing, you can watch the step-by-step further below.

Start by bending your paperclip into an L, then opening up the sides to make a triangle.

Cut a piece of Duck tape.

Place your paperclip triangle on the sticky side of the Duck Tape, centered over the chosen design. Make sure the design fits inside the triangle.

Trim all three sides. Clip in the corners.

cut to fit

Start folding in all the sides. Cut away any excess tape, and trim around the edges. Open up a jump ring, and poke it through the top of the charm. If you like, use a pin to poke the hole first – that will make it easier to get the jump ring through. Then close the jump ring.

Your necklace charm is complete! Just put it on a necklace chain, and you can wear it.
