Rodeo Poster Bracelet

Posted on Nov 4, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 1 comment

Our Paper Bead Idea #5 is the Rodeo Poster!  The paper beads came out in a nice wine color, I let it sit on my work table matching different beads that can go with it……..not easy sometimes.   And then, I found these fabric beads and it’s a match!  I’m happy when I find an excuse for my stash of beads not that I need one 🙂


These beads are made from this Poster.


The brown and maroon color of the fabric beads complements the paper beads well and I love that they are also light weight.


Another project off my table 🙂

Paper Beads For Japanese Girl

Posted on Nov 2, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 1 comment

I just fell in love with this little Japanese Girl Pendant my daughter picked up for me from Forever 21.  I know they have cute stuff, I was not quite sure they have jewelry that will appeal to me.  She said it reminded her of me ( I must have looked like this at one point in my life 🙂    It is I think painted on ceramic and hangs on a silver color chain.


I named the little Japanese Girl Bochi, my pet name for my baby grand daughter Lana (I hope it does not translate to anything bad)!  I love this little necklace but it looks like it needs something.  The chain looks so bare and boring begging to be decorated.  Since I’m adding a new category to this blog Ordinary To Extraordinary, little Bochi will be the first project to go in that category.  Here are my two choices:  Double sided patterned paper (my Idea # 8)


And, Rice bag! (Idea # 7).  I was so excited when I found this bag sitting on the shelf of my pantry.  I did not remember buying it.  Organic brown rice?  It turned out that my daughter Lyra has gone organic on me 🙂  I don’t mind as long as they come in pretty bags like this.


So, I will get busy today cutting them up and rolling them into beads and then we will see which one will be a match for Little Bochi necklace.

Paper To Paper Bead Idea #5

Posted on Oct 28, 2010 in Paper To Paper Bead Ideas | 8 comments

When you see me looking at a poster, most likely I am admiring the colors and texture of the paper.  There is always something going on in down town Glendora and we get fliers and posters of all sorts and this is one of them.  It’s so funny how Kayla and I gets excited about posters, junk mail and fliers.  Well, here’s why…….


Kayla got to work cutting them up in different size strips.


I love how they turned out, beautiful colors of merlot.


Paper Bead Trade Update: We are preparing the beads and the kits, hopefully to be mailed out on or before Saturday.  Unfortunately we cannot show you the bead soup mix because of our experience from last time where it was difficult to apportion the beads to everyone.

Home-Dec With Paper Beads

Posted on Aug 12, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 2 comments

We have this boring looking lamp that I got from Ross that is very inexpensive.  We thought to add interest a little drama to a section in your home is decorate it with paper beads.  It is more of a night lamp, not meant for reading, so use a very low watt bulb.  We just used the olive shaped paper beads for this project.


From ordinary to extraordinary!
