Mothers Day is just around the corner so I thought I would share a paper craft gift with a difference with you today.
Yes I have used Emerald City Crafts UK papers for this. I try to think outside the box and make as many different things with them as I can because they are such a good weight and I want to show lots of ways you can use them.
So here it is .... a pair of paper bead bracelets.
I made two, one with little pearls and one plain
A close up with the pearls
I have used the little gift box I made from Les Beaux Oiseaux collection to finish off the gift
And here is my wrinkly wrist showing what they look like on
So how did I make them?
I marked half inch lines on the back of the A4 paper and then in each line I marked diagonally before cutting them out. Once all the pieces were cut I rolled each piece tightly around a cocktail stick and glued the end down. It takes a bit of practice but I got there.
And to finish off the Mothers day gifts I made a couple of fridge magnets. My mother in law collects them so I will pop these with her other gifts
All the papers used in this post are from the Madamoiselle Collection
Next time I am going to shown you a picture using the Nostalgia Collection.
If you have ordered and used the papers let me know what you think in the comments
Until next time, take care
