How to make charms out of cardboard – an idea you will love!

This was an idea I first covered a few years ago.

Back then, I was getting paid to supply step by step guides for subscribers on a popular US website.

Eventually, the website got bought out by someone bigger and the guides were put onto YouTube.

They are still being shown there to this day, including my original idea, how to make charms out of cardboard.

Since I first created these charms,  lots of people have adopted this method and it seems to be quite popular.

For those who have not seen my original tutorial on cardboard charms, I decided to make a video.

You can see the video on my YouTube channel Rainbow Lane by clicking here.

And click here to see a previous post about using scrap card to make jewelry.

The original charms I made for the tutorial back in 2015 – watch the new video here.

If you have ever wondered how to make charms out of cardboard, you will love the video!

Whenever I want to learn something, long drawn out videos frustrate me!

I usually click off and find another video that is shorter and more to the point.

So I keep this in mind when I make my videos. I try to show you what you need to know, quickly and easily as I know your time is precious.

So this video is fairly short and as easy to follow as possible, without me actually being right there with you.

I also try to help busy crafters who don’t have easy access to craft shops, or have time to spend online sourcing the supplies I use in my videos, by sourcing the products and putting links to them on my Amazon Craft Supplies page.

All items were available at the time of writing but that may have changed with time.

But what about the images I used in How To Make Charms Out Of Cardboard?

Yes you can, because they are from my own designs which are available to download from my Etsy shop here.

Making these  gorgeous little charms really is so easy!

It’s so easy to make some really impressive little charms by using cereal box cardboard for the main material. And waste cardboard is partially free – right?

What could be better than craft supplies that are virtually free and, save even a teeny bit of rubbish from landfill!
