Bracelets & Boxes- 3 part series- Part 1

Hi Everyone,

I thought for the next three Mondays I would share some stylestone bracelets that I created a little while ago. The stylestone that I used to create the bracelet are no longer available through Clearsnap, but you can buy a similar product that works just as well through Stampbord

I just love the different looks that I received when I designed these bracelets and the boxes that I made to go with them. All of the boxes where made with those nifty little Altoid boxes. Those boxes are perfect to use for small jewelry.

Be sure you come back here on the next two Mondays for my follow up bracelets and boxes. You're not going to want to miss any of these and with the holidays right around the corner, these bracelets and boxes would make wonderful gifts for all of those lovely ladies in your life!

Thank you for joining me. Until next time...
