Charms Galore!

Happy Thanksgiving to those in the USA!

As promised in my WOYWW post yesterday I'm posting the special ordered charms I've been working on the past couple of weeks. One set is for Halloween, where I was asked to make as many charms as I could with the supplied paper, any style. Boy, is it difficult to photograph glossy accents and not get a terrible glare! So in the semi-light of early morning I was able to get some decent pics. I really wanted you to be able to see the stickles and how some of it bled into the g.a., like the orange.

Then we have 10 Christmas charms. The request for these was to leave the back blank and they needed to fit onto gift bags. The woman is using them a tags for her office party gifts. How cool is that! So the back of the charms is just a cream colored paper with a small holly stamp in one corner.  Plenty of room to write a name. The dangles for these gave me pause as I wasn't sure how to attach the head pin to the charm.  So I used a 4" head pin and wound the excess on my spring winder! Pretty cool. Love the itty bitty springs on these dangles!

Have a wonderful day everyone! I'll have another post later in the week.
