Christmas Wish Bracelets

Christmas Wish Bracelet 
I have made single Wish Bracelets for my “cookery girls” when they go off to do their GCSE’s but I have been thinking of ways to adapt the idea for Christmas, and this is what I have come up with.

The charms were from a couple of sellers on e-bay.  I already had the “wish” charms, but it took me a little while to think of two other suitable charms to go with them, in the end I decided on snowflakes (£1.50 for 10 plus P&P) and stars (99p for 35 plus P&P), I’ve also got some wishbones on order (from Hong Kong!)

I am sadly lacking in the area of the poet, so this is the best sort of verse/instructions I could come up with, perhaps I should make my own wish ……to become more poetical.

To keep the threads all in place I have stuck them down with small sticky labels and then to give the whole package a professional look I have cut another piece of card the same size to cover the back when put in a cello bag .

To seal the cello bag I have used some snowflakes stickers  that I think were free with a craft magazine a couple of Christmas’s ago.

I am going to pop one of these in my many pocketed Advent Calendar.
