What DO you do with a charm anyway?

One of the items I enjoy making is the charm. They are small and pretty and delicate and affordable among other qualities. Most people think, "Charm=Charm Bracelet" and that's very true...BUT there are many other things one can do with charm.
Below I will list a few ideas:
1. Turn the charm into a pendant
2. Tie charm onto a teacup handle (check out the "All Dolled Up" post for the picture) with pretty organza ribbon for bridal shower or tea party favors
3. Attach a lanyard clip and clip onto, well, anything...a cell phone, a purse, belt loop, etc.
4. Use that lanyard clip and attach to a zippered sweater for a sparkly accent
5. Dress up a present by tying the charm onto the bow
6. Put on a silk cord and use as a bookmark
7. Attach to a ribbon and tie around a napkin for a napkin ring/gift for your dinner friends
What are your ideas? I'd love to hear them!

Hello...sorry it has taken me a while to get in touch with you. I have been through a family crisis and have not thought of much of anything else.

I have you in Heidi's swap.Just wanted to stop by and say hello.

Love your charms. I don't really collect charms but these are cute.
I like the idea of putting on a ribbon and using to tie to a cloth napkin...or for a wine glass trinket.
