Paper What?! Bead Earrings – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Paper Bead Earrings and Earring Card

Paper Bead Earrings and Jewelry Card Holder

Yep, these earrings are made of paper!  For The Cutting Cafe design team, we got to work with the Paper Bead Set file and I must say these were fun and easy.  The file comes with 9 different bead shaped and sizes and a small box .  I decided to make earrings and will probably make a necklace or bracelet with the other beads (because they were too fun to make to just stop at two).

I have displayed them on a jewelry card made from the Jewelry Holder Set.  It has several different styles of earring holders, and a couple boxes.

Blinged Out Girl’s Flats

28 Dec

I have a friend who has a six-year-old granddaughter who loves bling – glitter, rhinestones, foil – it does not matter as long as it is shiny or sparkly. I recently got a pair of flats covered in crystals and she just loved them and wanted to keep them  on her shelf. Not! For Christmas we got her an outfit with lots of bling and matching accessories. So, I decided to bling out a pair of flats for her with my i-Rock to go with her outfit. My intention was to cover the entire shoe with rhinestones, but the process was taking too long. After a couple of hours, I settled for a few rows and an initial on each shoe. She loved them just the same. I used the pink/black/clear i-Rock rhinestone pack. Here are some before and after photos.
