Remember this from Suze Weinberg’s July newsletter:
–Push out the die cut shape from the papers (shown at R)… (there are a few different triangular bead shapes)
–Roll it on anything cylindrical (a pencil, etc), pull it off and glue the tiny end of the paper bead to the now rolled bead. The size of the cylinder determines the size of the bead center.
–Hold with tweezers & roll the Beadle in melted Clear UTEE in The Melting Pot. Never panic….A heat gun can always be used to smooth out any rough edges.
–BTW: if you prefer….you can take the paper bead, coat it with clear embossing ink, dip it into Clear UTEE powder & heat with a heat gun !
Jewelry Idea from Suze Easter Update 2008 newsletter:
“No Glass is needed in this new technique !
–Work on Craft Sheet. Melt Clear UTEE then add 1 drop of To Dye For & stir in color slowly.
–Insert paper image into Memory Frame. Yes it will be a bit loose in there. Be sure frame is laying flat on work surface.
–Pour UTEE into frame to fill. Looks like colored glass when finished. Embellish frame with rhinestones!
I used our sterling silver jewelry bales (attached with Loctite Brush On Super Glue) to attach the extra hanging bale on the bottom of the green frame.”
