I needed a last minute gift for my friend birthday. I decide to make her a bath salt and a turtle cellphone charm that can be attached to any necklace or bracelet. On the inside of the charm is .her name and a tiny round mirror. She is a big turtle fan, turtle stuff everywhere. So I knew this would make a great gift.

The dollar store I shop once a month at for craft supplies has a pretty nice craft selection. Its only one aisle, but a lot of great finds. The items I bought are listed below:
-Epsom salt
-Food coloring
-Tiny craft bells
-Plastic jar
-Glitter nail polish
-Ribbon
-Jump rings & eye pins
-Lemon Potpourri
-Tiny round & square mirrors

Items I didn't buy but used to complete my project are listed below
Clay, clear glaze, letter stamps, card stock tag, and tropical essentials oil.
