Beautiful Beads

If you’re looking for products that you can use to make a handmade gift and a card? Well, look no further. In this post, you will see some new products that will be available tonight at 10 pm EST at Papertrey Ink. Beautiful Beads includes a die that allows you to cut multiple pieces of paper to roll into beads and create jewelry. But, that’s not it! You can use the patterned paper and die shapes for your paper crafting as well.

 

For my card, I created a “wallpaper” using the Beautiful Beads die and patterned papers. I alternating each strip of patterned paper to make the background.

Here is a close-up shot of the design. I stitched around the border of the card front as well. I also die cut a cute little row house from Boards & Beams from rustic white cardstock. The coordinating dies to Boards & Beams will be available tonight!

The card base is soft stone cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in true black ink in on the inside.

I rolled my each die cut from Beautiful Beads and the coordinating patterned paper using this technique. I used an elastic clear string to thread each bead and create a bracelet. I added other beads for interest.

Here is another shot of the bracelet alone.
