It was my friend Ange's birthday celebrations last night and for a gift I gave her this necklace!



I made the beads from the pages of an old calender (2007) that I couldn't bear throwing out because I loved the images (strangely enough I had no issues with cutting the images up into little pieces for beads!). I cut the images into strips - then I rolled the strips up with the use of a trusty chopstick and glue stick. Finally I finished the beads off with a touch of nail varnish for protection and strung them on cord.

I got the "recipe" for the project from an issues of craftzine - yah! Craftzine rocks;)

Impressive! I still have a whole bunch more pieces of paper cut out so maybe all of my friends will end up with one of these Wink
