Back in July

Back in July I made this little gift for my Secret Sister. The swap that I was involved in was a 6 month commitment. Now that it's done and I have a new SS in a new swap, I can share some of the projects that I made for her without revealing my secret identity!! hehe.

The card layout is a favorite of mine. Simple and clean.

I made this card and a box for her as it was her anniversary that month. I knew she liked wine, so I made some little wine charms for her to use for guests to be able to identify their individual glasses of wine.

The charms were fun to make, but took quite a bit of time as I was unfamiliar with techniques used to make jewelry and I fussed a lot with my presentation. They could make fun earrings, too, if you don't mind mismatched ones!

This last photo turned sideways on me for some reason, but you can see how the charm rests around the stem of the glass. I would love to make more of these for myself...I just don't seem to have time.

If you have any questions about these projects, feel free to leave a comment.
