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

Oh God, these are cute!

I found a blog just today that featured these ultra cute Christmas tree earrings made from corrugated cardboard! That blog is Smart Poodle Publishing. I was so enthralled, I just had to try and make a pair myself. Here they are:

These are not the traditional paper beads, but yet they are a bead-like portion of the overall tree. I think I love them. I painted the inside of the corrugated areas, but the originals over at Smart Poodle, only painted the flat surface of the cardboard, and left the corrugated part brown. I like them both ways. My cardboard did not look at pretty as theirs did, so that was why I went ahead and painted mine. I could see these being worn by tree lovers everywhere. I would like to make a pair especially for Earth Day next year, using brown beads in the middle part for the trunk, and leave the star and sparkly base off. Yes, I can see them now!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I don't have a tutorial for the chain bracelet. I just fly by the seat of my pants when I make my jewelry. I wish I was one of those people that planned and drew everything out ahead of time, but I'm just not. I plan on making some paper beads this week. Live in SW Missouri and we are in a rare blizzard warning. Work has been canceled already so that is on my to do list on my snow days.
