Feed 20-30 cm lengths of fishing line through each of the holes in the main diamond piece. Secure each line in place with a knot. Attach each of the three smaller gem pieces to the three loose ends of fishing line at the bottom of the diamond and secure each with a knot. With the fourth piece of fishing line attached to the top of the diamond, tie a small loop at the end so you can hang it off a hook.
• Choose one side of your card stock to be your “wrong” side. Mark it with a pencil. The wrong side should be facing up each time you’re tracing a window shape onto the reverse side of your selected paper.
• When working with glitter card stock or paper, you might find that your right side (the sparkly side) might not want to attach to the frame of your gem if you don’t use enough glue. If this poses an issue, just use some sticky tape to hold it in place on the reverse.
• If you’re using a sewing needle instead of a hole punch, you can feed your fishing line through the needle to make it easier to get the line through the hole of the gem. I call that a hole in one.
