A fun project

I can't believe I never posted what Gina made for Mother's Day presents. She got the idea from Creative Juice on DIY. She really wanted to make them with her picture in them. They were so easy, she really did them all by herself.
I don't have an after picture, and these pictures are really cheesey, but you know how 4 year olds can be. They are flower key chains with a photo gem for the center. Photo gem is just the flat glass marbles with a picture glued to the back. She used polymer clay to make the flower (purple of course). Then we used a jewelry finding to attach the key chain. Super simple, and she was so proud of them. I think modified from a flower to some other shape, they might make a great Fathers day gift.

What a cute little project.

I had to laugh at your comment about the photo. I'm always saying to my boys, "don't smile, look natural. no! don't smile. no! don't make THAT face either." lol

looks like fun!
A thank you is in the mail, as well as your swap (I've made it into a Summer swap, instead of spring since I am SO belated!!!)
Your package was awesome! It was waiting for me when I got back from my grandmother's 90th birthday bash.
Sorry to be such a bad swap buddy...:( I didn't realize how crazy things were going to be around here. OH, I have one more thing I want to add to your package, can you e-mail me your initials? Thanks!!
