I found a great magazine article on vintage Halloween decorations and knew I had to use the pictures to make something fun.  After looking into my stash I remembered I had two "martha stewart" charm bracelet kits one that I received in a swap and one I bought on clearance.  Anyway, I cut out the images using a template and then adhered to the charm and covered with an epoxy sticker.

I loved it with the images alone but it really needed something so I found a pair of dangly bat earrings and took them apart to use as bat charms.  First time in a long time I have made something for myself!

Cute, and clever!  Smiley Where do you get epoxy stickers, though? Didn't even know that they existed, and sounds waaaaaay easier than doing the whole resin thing!

The bracelet is wonderful. Aren't vintage illustrations beautiful? Something about the way they were printed, perhaps.
