  • Here's how
    1.  Start by punching out about 50 construction paper circles
    2.  Grab some E-6000 Spray Adhesive (this makes the process a breeze)
    3. & 4.   Glue the disks together one by one until you have a 1/4" stack or thicker
    *Alternate the colors and use your favorite colors on the top of the stack
    5.  Dry them under a desk lamp on wax paper if you're impatient like I am!
    6.  When dry, sand the edges and sides to reveal the different colors
    7.  Harden with several coats of nail polish
    *This also brings out the color
    8. & 9.  Glue ring findings on the back with E-6000 glue

    Great idea! I would personally try this out with a variety of blues or purples/all shades of one color. That would make them look more natural and more pricey. If you ask me...

    I will definitely try this with my niece and nephew next time I babysit. Handmade gifts for mother's day! Boom!
