I am participating in a charm swap over at Ink Stains. We had a choice of making 5 general charms or 5 Halloween themed charms or both. Since I have never made a charm before I signed up for both of them! Yep 10 charms!
Now where to begin......YouTube. Looked up what is considered a charm, general construction and most important "how to open a jump ring"! I had no idea...
I am now informed and I think my Halloween group of charms turned out pretty cute. I used the new 8 x 8 G45 Happy Haunting paper pack. The images turned out to be the perfect size for a one inch punch, which fit nicely inside my bottle caps. After trying unsuccessfully to bend actual bottle caps (what a video that would have made :D) I scored some online! Much easier to have them already partially flattened!! LOL
Enough of my chatter.....here are my Halloween themed bottle cap charms.
and the backs
Yep, still need 5 charms. Stay tuned.
