    Charmed, I’m Sure! - Open Media Mail Art Swap~Due April 8

    Due date: April 8
    Signup/withdrawal date: April 2
    Number of Charms: 6 for 6 or 8 for 8
    Number of Players: 15
    Media: Open, should be handmade or hand assembled (no loose glitter)

    Make some original charms and get some equally unique ones in return (choose 6 or 8). They need to be no smaller than 1/2” and no bigger than 2”. Anything goes for the materials used (except loose glitter) such as felt, fabric, beads, buttons, lace, ribbon, bottle caps, clay, wood, scrabble tiles, etc. Example pic posted below.
    When returns arrive, you can attach smaller charms to a simple chain link bracelet, while larger ones could be necklace pendants or keychain fobs. All charms should be handmade or assembled, no purchasing a pretty dangle at Michaels and calling it good. They all need to have a jump-ring attached, or some way to hang them. They can depict flowers, birds, animals, or abstract designs. Please do join in the creative fun!

    Guidelines/Mailing:

    - Protect each charm individually in an ATC sleeve or snack-size baggie. Include your username on a small note or tag.
    - PM for my address when ready to mail, and send in a small padded (or bubble) envelope.
    - I will re-use your envelope to send your returns, so do include an address label and $2 bills (I will return any excess).
    - Internationals, please include $4 USA bills along with your address label.

    Come join the fun! You can concentrate on charms made from what you feel most confident doing, or you could do a variety of media. I know some people (not me!) are really good at beadwork, some might enjoy anything fabric, lace, and ribbon. I feel I am probably best at clay sculpture, like the little panda picture example. I will probably try to make and post some additional charms made of clay.

    Lurking ... Cici - how did you make the holes in the bottle caps for the rings?
