Today I am starting to share projects from my new series called Seven Weeks of Christmas. Each week I will be sharing with you three videos and blog posts featuring Christmas projects ranging from cards to gift ideas and packaging. Today I am going to share with you a video on how to create a paper bead bracelet and the gift packaging to put it in. I created a Mini Pizza Box gift box to put the hand made paper bead bracelet in. Here’s a look at today’s project.
The mini pizza boxes are perfect for jewelry such as the handmade bracelet that I made for this project. Both of these projects can be made rather quickly and all great as a gift for coworkers, friends, family and neighbors. It’s a gift that they will wear all year long. Here’s a look at the bracelet.
Mini Pizza Box:
The mini pizza boxes make this project so super easy and fun. The hardest thing about this project is the spritzing the box. To spritz the mini pizza boxes all you need to do is take a Stampin’ Spritzer or some other type of spray bottle fill it with alcohol and add anywhere from 25 to 30 drops of the color of ink refill that you are going to use. You may have to adjust the amount of drops depending on the shade you want. Once you have that ready you need to find a box to place the pizza box in before you spritz it, this will protect your work surface. Once you have the pizza box sprayed you have to let it dry completely before moving on to the fun decorating part.
I used the Quilted Christmas Photopolymer bundle to create the decorations for the box top. I stamped the quilt start in basic black and then stamped the two pattern pieces in Lemon Lime Twist and Real Red Classic inks. I pulled the colors from the Quilted Christmas Designer Series Paper Stack.
These beads are all made with current and retired strips of Designer Series Paper. These are a great way to use up some left over Designer Series Paper. You can get two beads out of one strip of Designer Series Paper. You can see how I created the bracelet and beads in the video tutorial. Now, just let me say my way of making the paper beads isn’t the only way to do this. There are many different videos out there on YouTube.
