Bah Humbug Challenge 21 -Sleigh Bells Ring

Can you belive we are now 6 months into the yr. Seems time now goes much quicker than when I was much younger .. why is that I wonder? It brings to mind the phrase "Time and Tide waits for no man"

Over at Bah Humbug Challenge 21 asks
We've given you a few, not so subtle, clues to our theme this week and you'll have quickly sussed that we want to see jingly-jangly dingly-dangly bells on your projects.
I am sure I had stashed away some dinky bells for such an occasion .. but for the life of me cannot think what I have done with them. They should in theory be in the 'Christmas stash box' but of course that would just be toooooo organized and simple. I did however know exactly where I had stashed away some much bigger 'jingly-jangly dingly-dangly bells' I bought them after seeing these fab. Jingle Bell Phone Charm/Festive Keyrings over at  It's All Fiddle Fart As yet I had not got round to having a go at making some keyrings. I decided that I wanted the keyrings to be very loosely 'festive' but at the same time very 'girly' As I had no small bells to further embellish the keyring I used buttons, coloured with Stazon and added a gem or 2 with some bright ribbons. The bells themselves are not at all loud, but have a gentle jingle jangle sound, so fingers crossed won't be too annoying. I now need to decide if they are going in the girls Christmas stockings or should I make a pretty box for them to be gift packaged. In total I made 2 Keyrings .. the 1st pic. shows the 'various' buttons better, in total there are 3 buttons on each keyring. Floral, round with added gem, and a star.

You can see the 'various' buttons used here better
