I received a sweet gift of pretty handmade paper beads in the mail last week from Passion For Paper. Thanks Dee! I have not made anything with paper beads since this post. Brinn has been asking for me to make something for her so I played around with a bracelet to wrap around her wrist a few times.
I love the yellows, turquoise green and oranges in these beads. I had some orange waxed Irish linen and added Czech seed beads to make the loop. Simple knotting between the beads, silver end caps and threading one cord on the outside of the beads added some extra interest to Brinn’s little bracelet. I designed the loop just large enough for the end bead to slip through tight enough to act as a clasp.
Dee also sent a sample of some of her other paper beads. I collected stamps as a child and I had quite a collection thanks to my grandfather. I have something in mind for the replica stamp bead below!
Hope your week is going well!
We are gearing up for school. 13 days and counting. Brinn starts Kindergarten and could not be more excited! Nick heads into 5th grade and sort of wishes summer could go on forever. Me…. I love Fall. Gorgeous weather in Northern VA. All the excitement that the new school year brings. Fresh paper and pencils – a full day of getting things accomplished! How about you? Are you looking forward to the fall routine?
Update: Dee added a comment with a coupon code if you would like some paper beads of your own!
