Altered Silver Brooch Box using Vintage Jewels on special this week!

Hi everyone! I'm SUPER excited to be back with you for another GREAT Creative Charms project today! You will not believe this but Creative Charms has a special this week--two specials actually...and it's MY favorite thing--BLING!! You get one of EVERY single gradient gem pack in the first special, and one of EVERY single Vintage gems in the second special. Yes this is one special that you could just use over and over! It's such a STEAL. I am not sure if they've sold out, since it's already Thursday--but you might hop over there and see at this special price!

Here is the first special of EVERY single color of Gradient Gems (these are self adhesive too which I love) for only 7.99 (This is a 30.00 value and includes TWELVE entire sets of gradient gems in all colors! eeeeek!

o
Here is the second special of EVERY single color of Vintage Gems (these are also self adhesive--be still my heart) for only 6.99 (This is a 22.50 value and I think it has 9 sets)

Now my awesome and amazing sister Karey has her birthday coming up August 20'th, so I wanted to make her something that included her birthstone, and was also beautiful and elegant like she is. So I found an antique silver small brooch box, and used the GREEN PERIDOT stones from both the Vintage gems and the Gradient Gems. I love it because the stones are the exact SAME peridot green!

I think it's wonderful when we can use our crafty stash in altered projects that otherwise would have no business in a crafty post! lol!

Here is the box that I have created for my sister's birthday (inside will be a special  lil monetary gift so she can do something NICE for herself). My sister's friend committed suicide two weeks ago and she is so sad and broken-hearted. I wanted to do something that would lift her heart.

Isn't this a GREAT way to use that bling! eeek! I know she will love it! So elegant and Victorian in nature.
Here is a pic of the top looking down.

How EASY peasy was that? I love that Creative Charms has the perfect embellishments to add just that special touch!

Okay so make sure you HOP over to my blog Getting Cricky! and leave me a comment there too. I'll choose one super special blog reader and follower to receive the ENTIRE Vintage Jewel set FREE! Don't worry you will want to stock up on these, so head on over and grab a set or two! If you win, you will be glad to have TWO of these fabulous deals! I still can't get over that they are 70%. Just eeeeeeek!

Have a very special day today--and remember if you have little lost treasures or vintage finds...alter them! Make them your own--it really is a purposeful and fun art that is very green and really is one of a kind!

Love Kristal
