Today is my day to post at the Cricut FANatic blog!
So, I thought I would do a little special Halloween decorating of Me And Ashlyn!
I have wanted to make my own paper beads for a while now, and when I flipped through the DCWV The Bewitched Stack I knew it was time.
I chose two patterned papers, a glitter polka dot paper and the gorgeous orange glitter cardstock. Love it!
I used CCR to stretch a simple triangle from the George cartridge for my beads.
I made two different sizes one being 1.5″ wide and the other .75″ wide.
The length of your triangle will determine the thickness of your bead.
I used a kitchen skewer to wrap the paper around and glued the ends with Glossy Accents.
I set them aside to dry for a few hours.
Now comes the fun part.
I dug into the wonderful collection of Blue Moon Beads that DCWV sent me to make my jewelry. Thanks DCWV!!
A full view~
I must share that these were super easy and fun to make.
I even made all those paper beads without gluing my fingers together. Yippee!
And even better was the fact that my teenage daughter was actually a little excited to try the jewelry on.
She even smiled while wearing them. Double Yippee!!
