Memory Glass Charm

I've signed up for a swap on ccswaps, where we are to use some type of clear item or embellishment. I choose to make a charm out of 1-1/2" memory glass pieces. I layered a vintage image on top of some music paper and added words and a small piece of iridescent wrapping paper to the flowers. Used copper metal tape to hold the two pieces of glass and the front and back papers together. Added some beads, a small moon charm and tied on a pretty ribbon.
On the back side, I stamped an image over music paper and added an appropriate quote from Shakespeare.

You need to solder this lovely object! The adhesive on the copper tape is not designed to hold long term - just to hold long enough for you to solder. If you don;t solder it will start to lift and eventually fall off....

You have the supplies LOL and you know how - so go do it!
