Just BEAD it!

And for the movie buffs… I’ve got the need, the need for BEADS! Alright, all jokes aside! I’ve been looking for new ways to use some of my old craft supplies on my cards. With money tight for a lot of folks these days, I think creatively using supplies already on hand is a great way to minimize cost but still yield a great result!

As part of my overall love for crafting I explore different realms of crafting to discover new crafts to keep my creative soul thriving. One my creative endeavors involved making hemp bracelets and necklaces adorned with an assortment of beads. That endeavor has left me with a decent sized container filled with an assortment of beads.

Instead of passing the beads off, or banishing them to the abyss of my closet, I decided to investigate my embellishments and see how I can incorporate the beads into my cards. I have to say I am mighty happy with the result.  The embellishments that I paired with the beads are small metal pieces available in packs of 25 at Michaels Arts and Crafts Store.  As seen below, I simply threaded the beads onto the winding metal to add some dimension and sparkle to the card.  The best part: I didn’t need to go out and buy anything, both items were already on hand, and the result is a unique embellishment.
