This is such a fun item! Ready? A friend(THANKS ELIZABETH) sent some gun casings. She had drilled a hole in the top and made tassels, so I did the same! I attached the tassel to a small friendship pillow! ALTERED ART for sure! Who would think that a gun shell casing would make something pretty! What a great idea right?? Thanks for sharing Elizabeth! I added some words onto the casing itself too! Just plain FUN!!!!!!!!
Hey, the weekend is here! HURRAY! Time for some art!

Sweet Patti! You can even make gun casings beautiful! These are awesome! Fantastic altered art here :) Love the tassels; perfect with your pillows. I can see many uses for these gun casings. There's a shooting range not too far from us; I just might have to take a trip :) Wonderful! Love, Marilyn

First of all, I join in the chorus of approvals on your altered art, gun casing craft!! So adorable, unique and fun.

Then I'll say, I'm glad you got your purse safely, I always worry, when I don't insure it.

But finally, you are so sweet, you don't owe me anything, it was YOUR prize you WON!!! but of course I will treasure anything you made if you already sent it. Thank you for the kind thought. Hugs!
