A Charming Tale!

So, have you heard of Origami Owl? This company has living lockets that tell a story through little charms that are placed inside the lockets. It is like wearing a shadow box around your neck! What makes these charms unique is that you can change them out day to day or outfit to outfit-so many charms to choose from.
I ordered this Origami Owl chain and locket for my future sister-in-law's birthday. Inside, I placed her first name initial and her birthstone. Then, I purchased other charms to tell the story of how she met my brother. I used my scrapbooking tools to create this little card for her. An envelope template was used to create the little pockets which held the charms: hair dryer, scissors, bow and arrow, American Flag, crystal dangle, cowgirl boot, ring. This is how it turned out:
She loved it! It made for a great birthday gift!
