Birthday gift for a colleague.....D

What great weather we have today - so good I decided to take a days leave from work and crack on with a colleagues birthday present.  She will be 40 this week and the girl has everything already so what to do??  I decided on a bag charm and a box to hold it.  Beats wrapping it anyway lol.  

I forgot to take a pic of the original box I altered DUH! so found a similar one to photograph instead. 


Beautiful huh! lol

Anyway, I covered it with lace and pearls and made some teeny bows for the sides.  I covered the inside with wadding and white satin I had kicking about.

For the bag charm I basically used 3 strands of chain (you know what I am like with metal lol) and fixed all sorts of embellies to them.  Alot of the charms came from earrings, bracelets and necklaces from car boot sales.   The beads and crystals are new from my stash fixed to eye pins and bead caps.

That's it really - just hope she likes it!







I apologise for the terrible photos of the charms - difficult to photograph and show it all - I did my best lol.

Hugz to all
