Valentine Charm Box

You know what I just said about I have to make my own fun at my age LOL Well I was in my messy studio and run across a drawer with altoid tins in it and I love to decorate these so thought I would make a couple. I have one friend who appreciates my homemade art so I made her one also and mailed it to her for a surprise since we don't get together anymore

I should mention my charm box is sitting on top of a pair of little red velvet girls vintage shoes
                                                                   
I really enjoy doing this sort of thing I don't measure and make everything perfect I just cut and glue and have fun creating                                                                
             
               These are sweet little buttons off of a baby dress  that I adored the girls outfits with and rhinestones of course,pretty silver glitter braid for the edges                                                                                                            
    I used some Valentine card papier  I got at a wonderful shop here once before it closed down, I hoard pretty papers. I tried to make a charming hat for one of the ladies,I think they were circus performers                                                                        
 Her Bottom with the gold button feet little glitter

A few little treasures added to my box                                                                                    
                         
A couple little hearts, crown charm, few old safety pins, rhinestone bracelet ,fleur de lis,and some do dads, fried cake button,topaz  pendant,bar pin,heart shaped button . Made with Love
