Pocket Watch Challenge-Inspiration Emporium

We had a challenge sent out to the Inspiration Emporium Design Team - use the Idea-ology Pocket Watch and make anything you want. Check them all out here.

Not a problem....I have lots of stuff I've hoarded to throw at this project!

I removed the back of the Pocket Watch and punched 2 holes in the base...not an easy thing to do, but I got it done.

Then I strung beads on the wires and put them through the holes.

The Chain Tassel, Heart Charm and Pearl Bauble were looped through as well and bows tied.

The Crinkle Ribbon was dyed and tied in a bow.

I have had the Collections vintage photo forever. It seemed to need some color, so I tinted it with markers. Fussy cut and edged.

The Rubons are on the outside of the glass. Some lavender Rhinestones, Heart Button, and LIFE pin are glued into place.

I cut out the other papers and used as background over the smallest square from Tim's Lost and Found Paper Stash Collection.

It was the perfect size!

The  Locket Key and Philosophy Tag were added with a Large Swivel Clasp.

So jump on over to look at the other girls gorgeous creations, and get a Pocket Watch of your own to make into a little treasure!
