1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / square paper beads? on: April 18, 2011 07:01:05 AM
Does anyone know how to make square paper beads like these?


I'm thinking its probably molded paper mache or something, but I am not sure. Dying to figure out how to make some though!

This is a hat I made for a solo performance at the school I teach at's culture festival.  Though I bombed the singing part, I got compliments on my hat and outfit lol.

This hat is made out of a gray fake flower, black zipper, black ribbon and black organza set on a thin hair band.

Yay thanks for the comments!  This took a really long time to make and was hand stitched together. though I did use some fabric glue for extra reinforcement ^_^

Though it is almost winter, it is still spring in my mind and heart haha.  This cuff bracelet is made out of printed leather, green print fabric, paper mache printed paper for the flowers, buttons, wooden lady bugs, and green leather cording.

Arg hate my crappy camera and I apologize for the blurry pic.

This is a pin brooch I made out of two layers of sterling silver sheets.  The black parts are oxidized.  It is supposed to be an angel with skeletal wings.  Overall I think it came out quite pretty.

This ring is made out of sterling silver as well.  Since I made it a while back it got a little oxidized but I quite like it that way.  The concept was fun and motion.  The band was the hardest part to make as it has two layers and etchings in the middle.  I then sodered (not sure if I spelled that right) some thick silver cord to act as a pole and then place two silver squares on some tubing onto it and then capped it with a small chiseled square.  The two squares "spin" around as your hand moves.  It's a bit high and thus can be dangerous but I love it all the same.

Oh my gosh I love them!  So awesome. I'd have a hard time parting with the ring as well ^_^

Thanks for the comments guys! It seems the zipper one is the fave all around ^_^ Maybe I can make more versions but dang, it's so hard making things more than once.  I like to just make it and move on to something new haha.  Currently I'm thinking of making pendants and bracelets. 
10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Cute Punky Bracelets on: October 09, 2010 05:12:11 PM
So after making a bunch of hair bands, I thought I'd get into making bracelets and this is what I came up with ^_^

This is a very rocker/punk style cuff bracelet made out of black leather, a white zipper, a bunch of twining white crochet yarn that entwine through...not sure what to call them...those circular hole stud thingies.  The inside is lined with yellow flannel fabric.  Overall I like it quite a bit.

This was my first attempt at making a cuff bracelet and it is made out of felt that I have sewed into tubes.  To accent it I crocheted small bands randomly as well as for the ends; the fasteners being braids and buttons.  As for the decorative piece, it is made out of a red zipper, crocheted circle and a metal fastener thingie.  I thought it came out pretty well and gave it to a friend as a present ^_^
