They are called purse blings. A nice decorative item to add to your purse, backpack or keychain. Here are the two that I made. Why two? This is a lottery challenge so the winner gets all the projects submitted that month. So the one on the left is for me the other for the challenge.
I started by using Tim Holtz's swivel clasps I purchased from Joann. To the clasp I added beads and gold metal leaves I've had in my collection for years! The red maple leaf is actually a brad. I cut off the brad part and punched a whole to convert it into a charm. As a finishing touch I added a typewriter key from TH. F for Fall.
So this is the purse bling that I will give away in the lottery.
This is the purse bling that I will keep.
My 7 yo son decided to get in the game. So he made a backpack bling for his little 'friend'. Although not very pretty its awful sweet! I did enjoy spending time with him doing something other than playing or talking about BeyBlades. Any of you moms out there with a 6-10 yr old boys know exactly what I'm talking about. :-(
Lastly . . . a little confession. I did end up ordering the Nantucket Kit from Pink Paislee during the HSN 24 hour crafting show. Oh my! :-)
