Charm packaging

You may remember my vintage and rock princess chunky charms a couple of weeks ago. Well, they are packaged up and heading to the swap hostess. One of the requirements of the swap, was to make a cute presentation of the charms. Pretty packaging. I wasn't sure how to do that, but this is what I came up with.

My Rock Princess charms are on some DCWV Rockstar paper that I have had forever and wasn't sure what to do with. It has hot pink foil lips on it!. I added a skull from Indie Art. I used an Inkadinkadoo stamp and stapled it over the charm to help hold it in place. To finish it, I added some black, shimmery ribbon.

The vintage charms are on paper by Karen Foster. I hand cut paper flowers out of some old book pages and added a Prima flower to the top of it. The brads were gold, but I scratched them up with some sandpaper and used brown Staz-On ink to make them fit in with the vintage theme. Brown velvet ribbon is stapled across the charm.

I had just as much fun making the packaging, as I did the charms. I hope you will try some too! Happy crafting!
