    Baubles, Bangles and BOO! -Halloween themed Charms/Open Medium -Due November 6

    Due date: November 6, 2022
    Signup/withdrawal date: no deadline, just communicate
    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 Halloween themed 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.
    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 should all be Halloween themed but let's keep it light and fun, no blood and gore.

    Guidelines/Mailing:

    - Protect each charm individually in an ATC sleeve or small 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 the same amount of postage it took for you to mail it to me.
    - Internationals, please include $5 USA bills along with your address label.
    - I will also be happy to accept postage through Paypal, Venmo or CashApp. PM me for info.

    Who's ready to create some BOO baubles?

    This is kind of what I'm picturing.

    I would also like to challenge you to look at found things in a new way and give some "junk" a new life!

    Each charm goes to a different player, right? So they can all be more or less the same? (excepting of course the differences that are inherent with hand crafted items)

    I'm going to lurk... I'm not confident in my altered item skills. I will say that those altered dice on the pinterest link are AMAZING!!

    I am currently fighting a sprained wrist. Will see how it heals the next couple of weeks. Hopefully I will be able to join. Love this idea for a swap.
