The Things I Have Bought

In an effort to reduce my stash I have been pulling out all sorts of bezel blanks that I have purchased over the last five years. I can't even remember why or when I bought these. Are they money clips, tie tacks or just a cool paper clip? The bezel is very shallow so there was not a lot of depth to work with. I have 12 of these so I thought I might make test set. I think they will look lovely on a card where I layer lots of fabric to create a pocket they could cling to. Then the card recipient can choose what to do next with these pretties.

Now here are some crafty links for you to review!
