My first attempt at making paper beads! The project is from Kirstie Allsopp's 'Craft' (there will be a review soon, I promise). It was lots of fun to make - and pretty easy, too. I thought the cutting out and folding business would be a bit tedious, but it wasn't at all - I just did it while I watched some TV.
I like it! I think it's unusual and I love anything 'booky' (the paper beads are made from a 'spare' copy of 'Sense and Sensibility' I had), and it's got some RED in it. BUT, can I ask you a some questions? And will you answer me HONESTLY? What do YOU think of it? Does it look TOO homemade? Can I get away with wearing it outside the house? Now, we're friends, so honest and true answers, please! ;-)
