Here Comes the Bride Month

June is right around the corner - bridal showcases are popping up all over Etsy and you need something to set yours apart from the crowd. So think outside of bride's maid necklaces - How about a truly memorable gift box favor!
Take some colors from the wedding and a charm that highlights either a hobby the bride and groom adore, their honeymoon vacation spot or even a cathedral - the sky is the limit here - for a focal charm. In the favor box you can include an inexpensive chain necklace and zipper pull hook so that your guests can turn this fabulous box charm fob into a memorable necklace or zipper pull to be treasured!
With favor boxes you are looking at creating over 100 pieces, so make life easy - a beaded fob and a charm - super simple and can be done very inexpensively. Tip : ask your supplier (Here) for special bulk discounts - you would be amazed at the discount you can get when you purchase items like charms 100 at a time.Assembly: lay out your beads and do a bit of sample layering to see what combination looks best. Grab a head pin (1.5 - 2 inch) and start building - mix up bead caps, pearls and crystals for a fun, sophisticated look. Trim the head pin and make a loop. Add a jump ring to your charm and slide both pieces onto a twisted jump ring. This sturdy ring will make a perfect bail for later.
