Chapstick key chain

Saw this on Pinterest and couldn't wait to try it.
Here's my version:
I bought the ribbon at Wal-Mart yesterday and cut the roll up into 8" lengths.
I hemmed the bottom and had a huge bag of D rings so I sewed one to the top.
Then folded up the bottom and side stitched it up.
This is how the back looks.
Can't wait to attach it to my purse. I made more to sell at a craft fair next month.

Tassel bead necklaces

I bought these crackle beads in Key West last week and wasn't sure what I was going to make with them.

I decided to make Christmas presents in the form of tassel necklaces.
I bought the completed 18" necklaces from Michael's craft store today, made the jump ring and formed the bead chain and firsr attached the bead to the necklace chain.
I then cut chain in 5 pieces: 9 links, 11 links, 13 links, 11 links and lastly one more at 9 links then added them to another jump ring attached to the end of the bead chain.
I'm so into tassles since I learned how to at a class. (I'll post that in a post later on in the week.)
