I have been working on these flower beads for a little while now. So I woke up early this morning and decided that today I was going to stop looking at them and finally put them to use! I hope you love these necklaces as much as I do!
All I did was make little flowers from my favorite scrap book paper ( a thinner paper seemed to work best...but then again alot of different papers that I ran across would not work out for some reason! You may have to experiment with different paper)
This is when it got tricky... my sister and I used every product under the sun to try and find something that would harden the flowers into beads so they would not break or come undone. And I mean we used everything! !!!!
What did seem to work: if you make the beads smaller this is what I did to finally get them close to what I wanted ( if you have any ideas that would be great!!!)
A layer of Collage Pauge, then a layer of mod podge, then end it with a layer of paper glaze. Any one layer of one product just did not give the results that I wanted, so when I was playing around with them this is what seemed to work the best.
I am open to suggestions!!!!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
