A Little Something From Victoria's Secret!

A couple of years ago, Victoria's Secret sold
these cute little bejeweled boxes filled with
mints.
From the minute I saw them, I was thinking
about what I could make from the ornamented
lids!!!!(Just call me Dr. Frankenstein!).



Luckily, the jewels popped right off and and with
a little hot glue and a pin back, the mint box
lids were reborn!



A fun pin for a boring sweater...





A fun pin for a fun sweater...




A little something to spice up a satiny clutch...


Even the mother of all magnets!
Ahhhhhhh, isn't recycling fun!!!

  22. These are so pretty! Reminds me of some things grandma had in her jewlelry box. I always loved for her to show me those pins. Victoria's Secret was wonderful for getting these beautiful boxes out there...... You would think they were vintage...I love all of the creative ways that you reinvented them!

    xoxo,
    Queenie!
