I love the petit h ribbon charms. If you don't know what they are: the ribbon charms are small pieces of leather in various shapes, mostly critters, that Hermes attaches to the ribbons on the petit h products.
Heart & monkey ribbon charms
I now have four of them from various petit h items, including the two on these birthday gifts above. In addition to the heart and monkey above, I also have a turtle and a round one. I feel like it's such a waste to not be able to do something with these charms, so I searched You Tube to see if anyone had posted a video of ideas, but amazingly I couldn't find any. (I did find that people sell them for at least $50 each, but that's another story.) Since I couldn't find any suggestions of how to wear them I came up with a few ideas of my own.
Mini Kelly pochette with twilly & ribbon charm
First I took my mini Kelly pochette and wrapped the handle with a beautiful twilly a friend gave me a few years ago for Christmas. Then I slid the heart ribbon charm on one side. I think it looks adorable!

Second, I experimented with sliding the monkey charm on a small Hermes scarf, which was also a gift a number of years ago. The monkey ribbon charm worked like a scarf ring or even just a decoration.

A unique decoration
Whether adorning a bag or a scarf (Hermes, of course) around the neck or wrist, I think these are great ways to utilize the ribbon charms. If you have any other ideas I'd love to see them!
