Tucker McBride

Return to a time when a boy could be a boy; when life was more clear from the top branch of a tree; when a kid could trade anger and disappointment for action and adventure; when the whole neighborhood was his playground; and the sloppy kiss from a dog could make everything right.

Have Fun in a Snap

Tucker's grandmother enjoyed creating new things from used objects, like a crazy quilt out of favorite fabrics and a new sweater from used yarn. I, too, love to entertain my creative side by making important things for me.

I enjoy snap jewelry. So, I made a snap from the picture I drew for the cover of my most recent Tucker book, Tucker's Perfect Day. 

  Use a picture you want to display in a new way or fabric with a unique pattern. 

Supplies are available online.

With craft glue, affix it to the flat side of the domed top. (Dome on the right) Try not to move the picture.
Let it dry for several hours or overnight. Next, glue the dome with the picture showing through to the button base. (Far left) Put the snap in your snap jewelry, or order a piece from the internet. As you can see from my necklace, I ordered some elements that can hang from a chain.
YouTube has several good videos demonstrating the making of snap jewelry.  

Whatever you choose to create, make it fun. And, remember, live all of your life.
