Happy Thursday! A little while ago my lovely blog friend Cobs from The Cobweb Emporium (check out her blog to see her gorgeous makes) suggested that I could make my own card/scrapbooking embellishments with jewellery making findings and beads. I’m not one to say no to a good idea so out came my beads and head pins.
This is what I came up with. I basically strung a few beads on head pins and put a dab of glue at the bottom of the last bead. They were a little fiddly at first (superglued fingers, eeek!) but I soon got the hang of it. I did try with other glues but really super glue was the best as it dried quickly. Once made I decided to see how I would use them in card making.
I started out simply with a Gelli printed page and a hand written sentiment but decided I needed to do more.
I loved how they looked in the bouquet of flowers. In terms of gluing them down glossy accents and patience is your friend 😉 They add a lovely decoration and dimension to a card.
Thank you Cobs for the suggestion. When I finally get my Etsy shop up and running I may decide to sell some in packs.
