Charmed! (Tim Holtz Inspired Purse Charms)

I recently had the pleasure of participating in a Tim Holtz inspired purse charm swap. I had never made purse charms before, but I find it fun to get away from paper-related crafting every now and then. For this swap we had to create two purse charms (one for each of our two partners). My favorite thing about these charms is that I ended up using elements which all came from different people through various other swaps I've done. The only part of these charms that I had previously purchased myself were the Tim Holtz clasps. The reason I ended up being so pleased with how these turned out is that even though all the elements were from different sources, they were all perfectly color coordinated!

I decided I wanted to create a special little presentation for my partners so I created petal boxes using some of my Tim Holtz card stock. I then wrapped some hemp around them with small name tags threaded through.
I hope you've enjoyed this little project share! I've noticed I hold myself back from blogging because I feel like I should only post when I have some massive project or a tutorial, but that's just silly. I'm going to try to start just sharing what I do because it honestly is what I love!
As always
Of course... if you have any questions or comments- I would LOVE to hear them!!
