Christmas Preperations

I love Basic Grey papers and the Figgy range is no exeption! and I've added some dry embossing with the cuttlebug folders onto a couple of the more plain papers.

Sarah [Christmas Preparations] has been coloured with distress inks

The paper beads are also made from the same BG range and are really easy to do:

Cut a strip of matching design paper approx 6″ x 2/3″ and cut both long sides from the middle to the end to make a point:

Then take a tooth pick or something simular and roll the paper along, starting from the widest [uncut] bit.

before you reach the end, add some glue so it sticks to the bead when closed.. pull out the stick and voila.. you got your own hand-made bead that is a perfect match to the papers you are using!
