Pixie Cottage Saturday Tutorial


Swirls of Beads

Materials used:
Design paper
Pixie Cottage Stamp "Hanna at the Pond"
Distress reinker colors
Coloured beads
Beading iron wire

Step One
Cut 30 cm (2 inches) of iron wire and fold in half. Now insert the bead.

Step two
Enter the other beads until you get near the end of the wire. Now fold the two wires inside the beads and let them go over to close the work. 

Step Three
Turn the wire with the beads around a pencil or a circular object to create a swirl.

Now you have created the swirls for your work.

Step Five
Insert the swirls of beads into your creation.
I incorporated mine into an easel card!

I hope you have fun with this tutorial and remember that we will return with New challenges in September.
Happy crafting.
