During that time, I pulled out all my UFOs of which I have 12 (that I need for Katelyn's Crossing) and was able to finish up quite a few. First came the necklace displays that will going into the gift section of my Christmas shop. The first two are from gifts I received from two wonderful ladies from one of my Yahoo groups. The displays are made out of left over craft foam (from when I made a bunch of flip-flops) Easy to cut and inexpensive.
These two minis below are what I came up with and am happy at how well they turned out.
Here is the template I used with some changes. I did elongate this to make it taller and cut off the side flaps. I used a piece of folded
cardboard to prop it up with..
Just for the heck of it, some of you may find the guide below interesting.
While I had all my jewelry findings out, I made some candle sticks.
I really like the tarnished look and as an extra bonus, they don't tip over!
Finally, I painted some bead caps to look like fancy bowls. The blue one looks like sterling silver with turquoise inlays.
Most of these minis went real fast. I had already put all the beads and supplies I needed in individual boxes so it was just a matter of some cutting, assembly and maybe a little paint. But the
Christmas ornaments I'm making now will take a little longer.
Well, that's about all for now. I hope you all have a safe and enjoyable weekend!
