after seeing the fabulous ones done by other craftsters, i tried my hand at it with the modge-podge equivalent of glossy accents (which just totally blows my mind!!) I was running out of washers, so i turned my attention to anything else I could possibly make into something (because it is VERY addictive) and noticed my little silver fishing lure things from the dollar store that i have had for so very long .. . worked perfect!!! used scrap-booking paper, magazine cuts outs, pages from my battered copy of Gone with the Wind, and nail jewels!




(LOVE the print ones)





and for my son, i made some lego-themed ones . . . they make totally awesome zipper pulls!!!

Great job! I've been making these too, also using the Modge Podge stuff since it was the only stuff I could find. Great idea of using the fishing lures and as zipper pulls. Never would have thought of that.
