Glass Stones Blue and Gold Neckerchief Slide


This fun neckerchief slide would be a good one to do for the boys for the Blue and Gold Banquet.  I found these cute "bottle cap images" on the site below for sale.  I bought them, and printed them on a size 4x6 on glossy photo paper.  Looking back, I wish I would have printed them on a nice regular paper.  I think having it on glossy photo paper made it hard for the modge podge to dry.


To make these cute neckerchief slides, buy the images below, and print the set of 12 out on a 4x6 paper, cut them out and add a little modge podge to the back of the glass stone, put the paper image on that and then add another small layer of modge podge to the back of the paper.  Let dry and put a back on them made out of 1/2" PVC pipe.  They did not cost much, and are a cute and easy neckerchief slide.  The company stopped selling these bottlecaps, so I made some of my own.  Click here to go to the page where I have them ready to download.


The first time I printed them I did it a size 5x7, but that made them a little too large to do them with the glass stones, so I just put a back on them.  I really quite like them.  They are cute and cheap!  You can see the difference in size above and below.


If you want to learn how to do the neckerchief slides that way, I have put that tutorial on our Akela's Council blog.  Click here.
