Getting Creative With Our Forever Family Blessing Coin

I have a friend who sells Origami Owl Lockets.  The company tagline is “Every Locket Tells a Story…What’s Yours?”  The idea is that you create a locket with charms or a necklace with dangles that represents your life.  I’ve created several themed necklaces (3 in fact…I’m kinda addicted) and I love them!

We recently designed a Blessing Coin with an adoption theme.  We call it our Forever Family Blessing Coin and it represents my own personal journey to adopt our son.  Turns out, it also works well with the Origami Owl dangles and a few of my adoptive mama friends thought so too!  The Happiness, Hope, Love, Tree of Life, initials, Karma, and Heart dangles all tie-in to this theme of adoption.  We all created our own special version of what adoption means to us and they are each just slightly different from the other.  I love that.

I also love that our products can be so versatile.  Whether you use our tokens as a necklace charm, a talismans for your pocket, a physical daily reminder of positive thoughts or just a pretty desk sitter – there is no limit to the energy they can create if you give them the power.

Tell us how you’ve created something with a token or stone.  We want to see!

You’ll need:

  • Red Glass Pocket Hearts
  • Inexpensive frame from Dollar Store or craft store
  • Scrapbook Paper
  • A photo of someone of love
  • Craft Glue

I spruced up a plain black frame by gluing hearts on each of the corners.  I found a frame with a cut-out of a heart in the center which I glued a sheet of black and white scrapbook paper to.  I then glued on a few hearts creating a perfect Valentine’s Day gift!

A trip to your local dollar store can provide a variety of ideas for displaying your Red Glass Pocket Hearts.

  • A large wine glass or flower vase filled with Red Glass Pocket Hearts adds a simple elegance to your table during the month of February.
  • Surrounding a candle with Red Glass Pocket Hearts makes a candlelit dinner with your sweetheart even more romantic.
