My Phone Charm

I don’t often make stuff for me ……
Gingerbreadman Phone Charm
But I’ve had this gingerbread man  for a couple of years now, it was taken from a nursery ornament in the shape of a tree which had a gingerbread man hanging on each branch., I waited and waited until it was reduced in the shop and as soon as it was, I bought it and disassembled it just for the gingerbread men, (something I have a big thing about)
My Gingerbreadman Phone Charm
I threaded it onto a mobile phone lariat (from e-bay) and a silver jump ring – et voila!  I’m not sure how long it will last, as it’s bound to get snagged on something, but perhaps, as I love it so much, I will be more careful.
This may also explain to you why I am always on the look out for the perfect little gingerbread man cookie cutter, so I that can make my own version of this sort of charm.
