YouTube crafty swaps are so great. I love participating whenever I can. The last swap I was involved in was an altered cork charm and altered bag swap. It was hosted by TheScrappyBookworm1. She partnered us up and we were to make 2 altered cork charms and 1 altered bag filled with crafty goodies. My partner was the oh so talented Lydia, who is iTripledogdareu on YouTube. She sent me the most amazing altered corks and bag. I show the all goodies she sent me in this video.
I had never in my life altered a cork before, so I had some research and learning to do. After several tutorials, I gave it a try! I actually love how my corks came out! I just went on Etsy and ordered like 40 wine corks for about $3. You can't beat that! I had such a great time altering them. I used my Tim Holtz swivel clasps, lots of seam binding and lace, Tim Holtz memo pins, Prima vintage trinkets and a vintage charm. I used Prima Lyric paper to attach the charms to and also used that collection to create my altered paper bag. Pictures are below and the video where I share all of my creations can be found here.
