Charm Swap :)

I was so excited when Mary-Beth asked me to be involved in a
charm swap she was co-ordinating, I've always wanted to do one of these!
So I'm catching up on lots of swaps and things this week,
and this is my little set of charms ready to post off to Mary-Beth.
My Design Team Stamps have just arrived from
The Stamping Queen
and one of the Plates I received was perfect for these little charms it was - Paper Artsy Dolls Plate D1 (the little tape measure)
I also used these CUTIE-PIE little Solid Brass 1" Charms I purchased these from
Brass Bouquet on etsy
and these amazing Czech Glass Beads came from an Aussie etsy shop
Zoe & Bruno
I used Stazon Jet Black ink to stamp onto the metal charms, and watch yourself when you are using your heat gun, they get VERY HOT!
Oh if you go and get some of those little tape measures charms, you do have to drill the holes yourself - all you have to do is buy a Drill Bit that drills through Metal,
I used a 2.5mm Viper Point Metal Drill Bit.
