Yep, pretty funny looking...

I hope her lawyer doesn't start claiming that she's the first to ever put out bows w/interchangeabe centers!!

LOL

I was told that she can only trademark her name. She did not invent the magnetic bottlecap. The necklace can't be patented because she did not invent the nylon necklace, washer or magnet. Each of those things have there own patent.

You are right...But it wont stop her from trying to convince us all otherwise. And it wont stop others from falling for it!

I came uponed this article about magnets and pacemakers. Just for your information. It is a good idea to let people know that the necklaces have magnets.

I tried making my own chokers, and it really works!! I took an old pair of my daughters, probably about a size 4, and cut them a little over an inch wide(1/2 inch just looked too thin at the time). It's really small, but I got it over my six year old's head!! I would suggest NOT using a toddler sized pair of tights, but it really does work!!

And it rolls up, just like Christie said it would. You can't tell it's cut from a pair of tights. It kind of reminds me of those things we used to weave pot holders with when we were little girls. KWIM??

Thanks, Christie for the tute!!

So, I tried printing them at home on photo paper but when I glaze them the graphics smear. Do you have any suggestions for protecting the image from smearing or possibly using a different kind of photo paper?

I have tried putting clear packaging tape over the image first to protect it, but that didn't work. It still smeared.

Thanks so much!

I don't know if you ever got an answer on this or not. Walgreen's may not print images that are copyrighted like disney, sports logos, twilight, etc. I have several Walgreen's around me and one of them won't print images, but the other I have had no problems.
If you print the images out on photo paper from home you need to seal the images with a sealer. The sealer is sold with spray paint and it's basically a clear gloss. You would need to spray them images several times before glazing so the images won't smear. I have also heard that you can coat with Modge Podge and that works too, but I have not tried that one.
