I know it's a bit early for making Christmas presents but I have 5 "Crafty Things" to make for the girls at work. I always try and give them something I've made. Last year was felt mice. Another time it was name plates. This year I thought I'd go for something different and make a charm to hang up at work/home.

Ruth and I popped into our local craft shop last week and I got 5 Maya Road bird key chains.

They're just plain chipboard that needs to be covered.
Perfect for using up scraps of paper, of which I seem to have loads.
A few bits of bling and a homemade beaded charm and we're done.

As one shape was an owl I had to give it some Googly Eyes.

One down - four to go!!
