Charming Altered Container for LESSology

I was digging through my closet of items to alter the other day and came across this document tube that was looking pretty sad. Then I happened upon LESSology's Charming Challenge and a project was born!

The paper modged podged onto the tube was previously a very old catalog, the Eiffel Tower was an earring and the old necklace I used to outline the clear rose charm came out of the metal scrap bin! 

Here is a side view of the charms. I liked this photo, it looked like the lady is holding a lantern, but it is really just the sun shining in!

And one more photo of the charm itself. I'm holding it so you can see that it is see through. I taped a clear plastic piece behind my German Rose sticker and then covered the top with some Modge Podge Dimensional Magic. Also threw in a pearl and some glitter! Love making these!

Happy Tuesday!
