Package For Bracelets, DONE!

Hi Everyone,
Just a quick post to show off the way I packaged the bracelets.  I just love how they came out.  All that is left to do is for Rory to add the To - From tags. I decided that a pull up package would be perfect for the bracelets and I think the girly-girls will love it too! The graphic and paper is Stampin' Up and the pull up fold over was easy peasy. Here are the pics:
How Cute are they?? I Just love this awesome SU stamp set!  This fold over was so simple after scoring it I hand colored the stamps and they look awesome. I really think these bracelets will go over big, I have been wearing one for a few weeks now and I have gotten a lot of compliments. I see A.C. Moore and Joann's are now selling completed bracelets for $14.99.  I think Rory and I did a great job and brought them in for less.  I bought the charms at retail, mostly from Oriental Trading and Joann's and when I did the math the charms worked out to be just under $1.00 a charm. If you add the in the retail value of the bracelet, which is about $3.50 and the fact that there are 9 charms, the cost is $12.50. So in my book we made an awesome gift from the heart that was affordable and nicer looking than the $14.99 bracelet (because of the amount of charms) that was being sold at the craft store.  Our theme was snow and the theme carried through from the bracelet to the package.  I am so happy with the way this all turned out that I have made them for my work peeps as well.  I also now have a new addiction for charms.  I have already been buying Halloween themed charms for next year!  Hope you all are having a festive weekend.  Thanks for visiting,
