Hi friends,
   Do you need spectacles for your mini display or for your doll. Lets make one. We need jump rings(here i used gold colored rings), paper clips, Metal cutter, tape and glue.
Now using metal cutter , cut the two paper clips as shown in image below.
Cut the part shown in image below and glue it to two rings as shown below.
Now take the two pins we have cut before and align them as below before gluing. Make sure the bottoms should align with the jump rings and the placement of arms or temples or side arms of spectacles should align with the nose bridge. See the image below to understand it better.
Now glue them carefully and it takes time to set. Use tapes to keep them in position while gluing.

When the two arms are set properly in place , spectacles are ready. That's it Njoy:-)

  Today i'm going to show you, how to decorate the box we did before. Its kind of interesting and fun... Lets go back to our childhood, we used to transfer coin designs onto paper, not tracing , i'm talking about embossing... Ya, i'm going to use the same technique here.
 We need a box, aluminium foil, coins with designs on it,  big staple pins, toothpick and glue.

I have collected three sizes of pins. Smallest one is the regular one and the middle one i used for making box and the biggest one is the one which i'm going to use here.
 I have collected some coins with interesting floral designs.
I separated two pins from the bigger set and i have selected this coin for embossing.

Glue the two pins as in image below and set aside. This will be our frame.
Cut a  piece of foil with the measurements of  above frame. Keep the selected coin below the foil and using the toothpick gently run on the foil. Make sure all the details are covered. Use the bottom of toothpick initially and for minor details use the tip of it. Be careful while doing this, foil is very delicate.
Technique for embossing

This is the embossed design on foil
See the details
After doing this we have to smooth the surroundings. Use any tool of your choice and make sure the design shouldn't get disturbed.
After smoothing

This one is my favorite...need to smooth the center more.
Now cut the foil and glue it to the frame.

Now the design is done and ready to be glued on top of box.

That's it. Njoy:-)
