Truly frickin' awesome - and got your priorities right - you can hold your drinks and drink from them too!

Cinnapaste, I have good news - I went back to the Joann's where I found the lantern finding, and they had re-stocked it!  Not only that, they were also carrying it in antiqued silver and copper colors too - both of which I picked up while I could.  So there's hope for you yet!

beki, I even added one to my wristlet wallet, which is the only thing I take with me for short shopping jaunts (even tho' my phone is inside the wallet).  I must be time-obsessed.  Wait, no more like obsessed with not dropping my phone Wink

Cinnapaste, I clearly recall getting that lantern finding at a Joann's, but only the one near where I work (I got the last one) - it was on a sales rack that had been almost emptied.  I checked at the one where I live, and they didn't even have the same line of findings - I gather from this that what they offer is up to local management (I'm totally guessing here, but the 2 store's offerings were very different).  Good luck finding it!  And oh yes, the tube is actual glass.

Long-time lurker (and admirer of y'all's work), finally de-lurking to show something I made for a new bag.  I thought about putting this in bags, but I guess it really is more of a trinket.

I just got this bag, which has the right size and organization for what I need, but it needs a little sumthin-sumthin, ya know?  (and interestingly enough, this designer usually has WAY too much bling for my taste)

I was inspired by this site to make a bag charm (scroll down):


So I set about making a little bling for it, to the style of vintage (got most findings at Michael's and Joann - Michael's in particular has a great new line of "handmade found" findings, I threw the labels away already but you can't miss them):

Closer?  Ok:

I particularly wanted a working watch on it, so I wouldn't have to keep pulling me phone out to check the time (especially when traveling in airports, I keep dropping my phone).  Here's a real close-up of just the bag charms:

I can post pics of the individual findings later (this post is getting pic chubby), but they're super cool - the little boxes open, and the lantern style opened so I put some tiny beads in there.  Enjoy!   Cheesy

Thanks for the quick suggestions, Suz, I'll try them today and let you know how they worked out.  BTW, not sure where exactly your are in N TX, but I spent most of my life there (a good chunk in FW and Dallas), so HOWDY! shout-out Wink

This is such a super idea, I went out and got all the supplies (I finally found the jars at Walmart), and went about making them up.  But, ran into a snafu. 

Once I had made up the lid completely, and run the bead of hot gun glue around the edge of the lid ring, I couldn't get the lid to screw on to the jar!  I even popped it back out (thus ruining the lid ring - luckily, you can get the lids separately from the jar), and took out some filling, but still, couldn't get the lid to screw onto the jar - it's like there's too much thickness to the whole she-bang once you finish all the gluing on of stuff.

Help!  Any tips?  I did it exactly as described in the tute ... These are suuuper cute, and am hoping to make a few as gifts soon...
