I have watched the tutorials etc but it just shows how to make the charms, my question is how do you attach them to your albums? Thanks

Do you mean to dangle? Poke a hole in the top of the charm as it is being made (or drill one after), insert jump ring, and from there, the sky is the limit.

How do you make your own charms? What tutorials, please?

scrapn nana, I will find those and post them. What I am having trouble visualizing is how to secure them to the album. I am off to look at the tim holtz stuff. I do have a cropadile so will try that too. Thanks

I haven't used these, but wouldn't the Tim Holtz Ring Fasteners and the Tim Holtz Buckles work to fasten charms onto a mini album?

I've purchased some of the Ring Fasteners but haven't used them yet.

Are there other items similar to these that will work?


Cmputerdazed, thanks for posting the links to charm making.

I plan ahead & put a brad through the binding material of the back panel before I put the album together. The charm is dangled from the brad.

Thanks for the suggestions. How secure is it on the brad. That sounds like it would work since I don't have the Tim hilts stuff yet.

It's secure on the brad; you'll want to size the brad proportionate to the heaviness of your charm, and put the top jump ring through the brad before you attach the brad. Then, push the brad flush to the binding. That baby isn't going anywhere! I also push the brad's "legs" flush down on the back of the spine after I push them through, then put tape down over them so the don't wear on the parts that they touch.

Have fun!
