Quick Tip and Technique of the Day!

Easily dress up your mini-album with metal.

Tools and supplies required:
jump rings
bottle cap metal trinkets
Tim Holtz Swivel clasps
Vintaj bare brass circle

This project was inspired by a charm bracelet that I saw in my wife's jewelry box. The idea is you can add to this chain when you discover or collect things you find along the way. I love IBC Root Beer it reminds me of when I was a child and played little league. I would always have a Root Bear after our games so I put a bottle cap on the end of the chain. The Vintage Trinket Birdhouse represents my beautiful wife who inspires and motivates me in everything I do. The measuring tape charm represents how much our family has grown and the five is for how many family members we have. 

Here is a video that shows how I put this project together enjoy!
