Works Like a CHARM!

I'd like to share with you my "Charmed Birthday" set, which appeared in the December/January 2008 issue of Paper Trends magazine. I designed this "charming" card to be an invitation to a young girl's birthday party. The invite includes an attached bracelet with one charm. Guests are instructed to bring their new bracelet with them to the party, where additional charms will be given away as prizes. I also designed simple charm holders to showcase the prizes.

Materials:
Bracelet:
  • Accents: chain from Metal Madness, assorted charms by Fancy Finery, 12mm lobster clasps by Jewelry & Craft Essentials
  • Tools: needle-nosed pliers
Card:
  • Cardstock: Assorted Box of Cards & solids from DCWV, white from Hammerhill
  • Adhesive: 3M's ATG gun & tape, Pop Dots from All Night Media
  • Fonts: Fontdinerdotcom Luvable & Rickles from fontdiner.com, Round No. 1
  • Tools: Crop-A-Dile by We R Memory Keepers, computer
  • Other: charm bracelet, see above
Charm Holder:
  • Cardstock: Assorted Box of Cards from DCWV, white from Hammerhill
  • Accents: assorted charms by Fancy Finery

What an awesome, original idea! What little girl would not LOVE this. I so wish I knew some little girl to use this on, but will definitly be keeping it for future reference.
