Thanks to an idea posted by Diana Gibbs where she created a key ring using these products, I decided to create my own purse charm.   I'm a big fan of Miche Bags (thanks to Patty Bennett), and they have purse charms.  I thought it would be fun to make my own using the Simply Adorned products and a key ring.  It is easy too to switch out the designs on the Simply Adorned Charm so that the color matches the purse, outfit, or the season.   This is going to be such fun to have and to use.   I want to purchase a couple more charms to add on to this purse charm.

If you are not familiar with a Miche Bag ... it is a purse where the outer shell is changeable.   So you buy one basic inner bag and then as many shells as you want.   LOVE THEM. Quick and easy to change the shell plus there are dozens to choose from.

Here's some photos of what I made using a key ring, the bracelet, and the charm.   I plan to add in some more charms, but need to order them as I only had the one as a sample.  Now I wish I had more on hand.   These will make GREAT gifts and can be personalized for the person you are making it for.

I hadn't worn the bracelet at all because it was 8" long and didn't have any jewelry tools to shorten it.   The purse charm didn't take any tools at all.   I hooked the toggle on the bracelet, then divided the bracelet in thirds.   I took the loop at the 1/3 and 2/3 mark and hooked into the key ring.   Then I attached the charm using the lobster claw clasp.   The key ring fit ring over the Miche Bag handle rings. (The bag style shown is Phoebe.)  Doesn't it look great!!!  One side is a heart stamped in Poppy Parade and the other side is tiny flowers stamped in Concord Crush.  All images were from the Tiny Tags Stamp Set, item #118091 - wood OR item #118592 - Clear Mount

So whether you want to create your own jewelry, key ring, or purse charm Stampin' Up! has the products you need to make your own one of a kind pieces.  You can even add in Baubles in crystal or pearl, each have a lobster claw clasp.
