here's my first commissioned work, I made it for my grandma for $20. Grin It took me two sittings to make it. I learned the technique from a book and it was my second attempt at it. I think that it turned out really well.  Let me know what you think. sorry for the blurry pics hopefully I'll get a good camera soon.

Wow, how did you do that? I have a bunch of tins that I could do that too and about a million beads.  Roll Eyes Did you just string on the beads and glue it down?

Betty: Well, it's not the fallin', it's the jumpin'.
Rube: I'd feel a whole lot better about the jumpin' if it weren't for the fallin'.
Betty: Fallin's easy, you just fall. Jumping involves strength of will.

Looks great! I made one of these as well, probably from the same book, and I'm curious about what brand of double-sided tape you used, or if you used another method.

Thanks. Grin it was probably the same book, but I can't think of the name, i think it was an intro to seed bead book.  to make it I used terrifically tacky tape, a glue-like double sided tape, and strung the beads on.  afterwards I used a few layers of mod podge.  my grandma gave me the tin to use. she loved the final result Cheesy.  she put a mirror in it and turned it into a makeup case. i made my first one for my father and I'll post it later

The book is called Getting Started with Seed Beads. Below is a link to my project from the same book.
