Then I created some charms and attached them to the heart tags. This tassel is made of beads strung on beading thread. I sent this to a special follower as a surprise.
This charm is made from an old costume earring. I love the pearls effect and how it dangles.
Each of these charms is attached to a lobster clasp and can be used for zippers, charm pins, decoration on curtains or pillows or anything else you can think of.
I just love the look of lace on the tiny little envelopes. The photos do not show that the lace continues on the flap to complete the look. Therefore instead of sealing the flap I chose to tie ribbon around the envelope to close it.
A little beaded surprise wrapped in tissue enclosed in a tiny lace covered envelope. Yum!
I still have a lot of these tiny envelopes so I shall be putting on my creative thinking cap.
Please share any ideas you might have for using them. I think I have a balance of at least 400.
I am still weeding, trimming and cleaning house in preparation of company arriving. The hours and days are passing so quickly. I must adopt the attitude that whatever I do get done will be far more than nothing. Got to get back to my duties as "daylight's a burning" so Mr. C says.
Happy Summer Creating...
