A place to find a list of paper beading sites, and maybe a creation made by me from time to time!

Paper bead Christmas tree earrings!!!

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!!!
xoxo- Julie

These are so awesome! I don't think I would be able to do very well though because of my tremor. Maybe I can buy a set of yours?! I'm going to watch the video though.

I love these! What are the dots made of? These are so cool!

Janice- the red dots are acrylic paint. I dipped the end of my skinniest paintbrush in the red paint and touched it to the bead where I wanted a dot. Then a coat of varnish over top! Thanks for all your nice comments!!!!!
