Make pie chart paper pendants

If charts, graphs and metrics are your thing, you might enjoy crafting some pie chart pendants. They're made entirely of paper. Oh, and a little glue, thread and a jump ring if you want to get technical. Which you probably do, if you're the kind of person who likes pie charts.

With a punch (I used a 1" circle), cut out about 12 circles of cardstock. You can add as many circles to the pendant as needed to get the thickness you want, of course. The ones I made are 1/8" thick.

Glue the circles into a stack one at a time. Be sure you get the glue all the way to the edges, and use just a small amount so things don't get messy. Stop at the half-way point.

Double a small length of thread and tie it to a jump ring. Make sure the opening in the ring isn't covered by the thread. Glue the thread to the paper stack with the ring sticking out, then keep adding layers on top until the pendant is the desired thickness.

Cut some wedges of colored paper for the top layer and glue them on. When all the glue is dry, the paper pendant will be very hard.

To seal it, you can brush it with polycrylic or Triple Thick. To make a shiny, glass-like surface, try some Mod Podge Dimensional Magic, Aleene's Paper Glaze, or Diamond Glaze. Test the products first on a scrap of paper to make sure colors won't bleed.

The little DIY color-blocked necklaces are cute and light-weight. Just don't wear them in the shower!
