  1. Ream holes to accommodate the eye screws using your bead reamer. The holes must be wide and deep enough to accommodate the screws, to prevent splitting the wood. They should be at the top point of the star and at the indentation directly below the top point. Use your chain nose pliers to secure the eye screws as you gently twist them into the star.
  2. Paint the star on all sides and allow to dry. Use the screw tops as handles to prevent smearing while you paint, and rest the star on its side on two points to prevent smudging while it dries.
  3. Brush a small amount of liquid laminate on the back of the paper image and press it on the front of the star. Repeat with the word, placing it overlapping the top of the image on an angle.
  4. Paint the entire star with Sparkle Mod Podge, allow to dry.
  5. Paint the top with a layer of liquid laminate and allow to dry. Repeat. Make sure you have no air bubbles, pop these with a small pin or gently shake them out.
  6. Create coiled top head pin dangles with the three bicone crystals. Slide them on an 8mm jump ring. Attach this to the bottom of the bottom screw with another 8mm jump ring. Attach a final 8mm jump ring with the open circle tag to the crystal jump ring.
  7. Attach the swivel lobster to the cell phone lanyard jump ring using pliers.
  8. Check back through the jump rings to ensure that they are all securely closed.
