Busy with the badge holders

So, I started out with 30 blank badge holders...I've been selling them at work for only $10 each - they have been selling crazy fast - I had to order more blank ones to keep up with the special orders.  I got 50 more in the mail on Friday.  So, I've been crazy with them.  Here are some I've made that have already sold and some I've made since Friday...First, let me show you how these work

Now to show you what I've made...

I had this crazy thought of something new to do while I was getting my nails done a while back.  When the lady (Star) is doing my 3-D nails she uses the regular acrylic and glitter and makes some beautiful stuff...SOOO I thought - 'Hey, why don't I get some acrylic nail stuff and try making things with it?'  So, I did.  Some turned out better than others.  Here is what I did:

Pretty cool huh?  Loads of beads were harmed in the making of these badge holders!  LOL  These didn't turn out quite as nice as I'd hoped, but I still like them!

Thanks for looking!

These are so amazing!!! Can I ask you, on the Winnie the Pooh teapot one, where did you get the teapot and handle beads that look like they might be bead caps and there's a turquoise bead in the center? It looks like something my mother would love and I'd like to surprise her with them! Thanks!!
