Design a necklace for every outfit in a flash. Print digital elements or images on photo paper and adhere them to charm frames. Carefully fill the frames with dimensional adhesive, being careful not to work too fast to avoid bubbles. Allow several hours for them to dry. Complete the project by attaching cords from your local bead store to each.
