guess what i made em out of??....the insides of a tape! all it took was a few layer of nail polish, thread & needle, faux pearls, & fishhook earrings!! fun fun!! :]

Ok. So the first things first!!  gather your materials:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v200/isloovereal/9cb34dff.jpg

1.   needle
2.   thread (you can also use fishing wire so its see through which is also a good idea)
3.   tape
4.   fishhook earrings
5.   pearls :]
6.   hot glue gun (optional, but STRONGLY RECCOMENDED)


the most difficult thing, (but ehhh you get used to it). Rip up destroy & just do anything possible to get to the insides of the tape. Orrr if yur protective about the outer case & wanna use it for something else, I suggest the tutorial of the tape id holder, which includes instructions on removing the outer cover of the tape.

cut the tape that connects one to the other.

 then apply nail polish where you cut it. Making it stick, next apply clear n.polish on one side of the wheel. Let dry. Then do the other side. Let dry.

While its drying,, get thread through the needle. Tie the knot on the end to secure it, but dont wrry about the pearls going through, if the thread is long enough, they wont & later on it doesnt matter.

slip the wheel in (when its dry of course)

and then thread back to the pearls, loop the fishhook in as well. secure the string with 3 tight knots

cut off the excess string

(to prevent the work from slipping off the fish hook earrings, I would reccomnd adding a dab of hot glue. On the eye of the fishhook)


 and tada!!!! Flaunt your mini-masterpiece!!! :]

*jumps up and down and claps giddily* Tutorial! Tutorial!

I want to know how to get the spools out intact and where, how, and how much to put on for the coats of nail polish.

Love the subject line- "erno" is a great word.

I can't see the pictures? Maybe it's my awful laptop but whatevs. If they can be fixed that'd be rad.
