Come Into My Garden Bracelets

Posted on Jun 24, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 5 comments

I am taking advantage of my renewed interest with buttons.  Here’s bracelet sets to match the paper bead button ring from yesterday.  These are little garden creature buttons  strung with round paper beads.  This is what I call “happy bracelet”.  You know how you just want to be a kid again and paint you toe nails different colors?  Well, I do feel like that sometimes and if you noticed I paint my nails happy colors.  Here’s the ingredients for a well kept garden:

Garden Creatures Button Bracelet

Garden Creatures Buttons


Check out you local craft stores for buttons, they range from whimsical to vintage, just make sure the button has a shank that elastic can go through.


Paper beads are perfect elastic bracelets because they have holes that are big enough to accommodate elastic knot.  You just want to make sure to secure the knot with a little dab of clear nail polish.


Idea 1 for the Paper Bead Trade 🙂 You can make whatever you want with the kit I will be sending you, add your own beads if you like, as long as you use the paper beads that comes with the kit which comes from your new found friends.


BTW, I am not putting a limit on the Paper Bead Trade participants, the more the merrier right?  As long as you sign up on or before June 30th.  I just need you to email me your address so I can send you your kit:)


I just have to share with this guy who lives in my garden, a remembrance in my antiquing days.  He is funny and I can’t help but smile when I see him.


I would love it if you would share with me and with everyone your ideas, just email it to me and I will link it to your blog or web site.  Let’s get those creative juices flowing 🙂
