Gifts for mother: Beads Of Love Card Tutorial

Beads of Love

In the midst of Chinese New Year celebrations, I'm also making Valentine's Day cards. Being a couple of continents away from America, I wanted to get my cards out nice and early this year. So here's my first 'LOVE' themed project of the month - something in the Clean and Simple style (which my regular readers know is NOT my forte). Let me know how close you think I came to a CAS card.

Always Love went out to Tara McCormack.

Tutorial :

  1. Divide your paper into 3 panels measuring 4"x5.5" each

  2. String about 10 beads onto a 12" long thread

  3. Coat the thread with white glue (I just used my fingers)
    Space out the beads at random intervals and press down
    Wait 5 mins for the glue to dry

  4. On Front of Card (middle) panel, bring the needle through the top of the paper : from front to back. Thread the other end and do the same at bottom of the paper

  5. Repeat for another 4 strands
  6. Secure the thread ends with tape. Fold the InSide Flap (right) panel over and tape to the back of the Front of Card (middle) panel to hide the thread ends

  7. Write your sentiment on the Front of Card
