Creative Ways to Use Your Extra Charms

Charms don't only have to be used in necklaces, bracelets, and earrings- they can be used for so much more!  They are so versatile that you can use them in any craft or project you can think up!  Here are a few examples of ways you can re-purpose your old jewelry, or other charms you may have hanging around the house if you don't want to throw them away or sell them:

Gift Tags 
(nautical theme - these are so cute!  use a shape paper punch (or cut with scissors) to cut our your tags, then using a pair of wire cutters, snip off the top hole where the jump ring connects, if desired.  make sure to file down any parts that are sharp, then simply attach each charm to your tags with a glue gun or another similar glue.  you can also glue them to scrapbook pages!)

 Handmade Note Cards

Gift Packaging
(embellish small or large presents with your charms!)

Candy Jar Embellishments
(add charms to candy jars, plates, bowls, silverware, or any other ceramic 
dish you can think of to add a little 'charm' to your style!)

Shoe Charms
(attach a charm to your shoe for a little added bling, interest and design)
