2012 is the year of organization. Okay, I may have made that up but this year I am going to organize my home, including some serious decluttering. I have two boxes/bags ready to go to Goodwill. Last weekend I started on my big craft cabinet where I found these from a long time ago project.
I think the idea at the time was to sell them at a craft show. That obviously didn't happen so it is time to get rid of them. But those charms are so pretty. How can I use them? Then I looked in my craft closet and saw the perfect solution.
They would be a super accent for my marker and scissor holders! All I would need was more beads and stretch beading elastic to make them bigger. And I already had that so I was good to go.
My favorite is the create one. When I came across the tube of those fun and colorful beads in my boxes of beads, I knew I had to use them. They just made me smile.
Of course, this one gave me the most problems and I blame the cup. Unlike the other cups, which were curvy, this one gradually got smaller from top to bottom. The first one I made was too big. So I had to restring it. Although the cup is not ideal and the charm sits way at the bottom, I still love it the best. And for fun, I put a flower bead and leaf bead in the back.
