Well, I had decided that I must make these cute Christmas tree earrings I had first seen the instructions for over at Infarrantly Creative, and then today I just took charge and did it! They are slightly different sizes, but I think it adds to their charm, of course!
The video and tutorial are over on her blog, and I would just say to pay attention...especially to the way to string them up (totally awesome and soooo easy), and to the way to cut your paper to start, so that they do come out exactly the same size.
I cut my paper strips out of construction paper, and it was a mistake. The glossy fingernail polish I use to seal and shine them up with, gets soaked up so badly by the construction paper, I needed to put a ton of coats to finally get some shine going! These are still not where they need to be, but they do have 4 coats now and are sealed. So...I just couldn't wait any longer to put them together!!!
Are they not the cutest??? They look better in real life...I cannot thank Infarrantly Creative enough for all the info... and the video actually changed my life as far as ease of making earrings goes.....THANKYOU!!!!!!!
Hope you can all give paper bead making a try...especially these cute little trees!!!
