Well with all this snow still on the ground and it starting to fall again the best thing to do is stay in the warm and get crafty.
I have been experimenting with making my own beads using some of the Stampin Up! designer series paper and crystal effects which is a lacquer which dries really hard and clear and is perfect.
Firstly I cut lots of long triangular shaped pieces of paper and using a cocktail stick rolled them up. Then I covered them with several coats of crystal effects lacquer and left to dry.
I am really pleased with the results and have made a necklace and hope to do some bracelets and earrings too.
As always firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to know more about Stampin' Up! products, order a catalogue or buy any of their great ranges.
Thanks for looking :))
