DIY Paper and Tape Charm Bracelet. I have never used this simple technique - and normally I only post crafts I know will work, but this looks really cool. I got one question a long time ago from feeltherainbows about paper and Mod Podge crafts and posted this roundup here. Tutorial from The Craft Barn here. *She used glossy paper sheets and from the look of it clear packing tape. Also you could use ribbon instead of jump rings like in this tutorial here.
Eight Cheap DIY Jewelry Tutorials Using Mod Podge. feeltherainbows asked me about jewelry tutorials that use Mod Podge (and not Mod Podge Dimensional Magic). The beauty about most of these tutorials is that they use lots of recycled, inexpensive or easy to find materials.
My beads are finished. Ready for an awesome tutorial.
Things you’ll need:
WHITE elmers glue(not clear or blue)
An old salad container from wendys
Clear nail polish
Take the water and pour half an inch of water in the container. Stir some Glue into the water until it’s white.
Now take the newspaper and cut it into a long thin triangle. Dip it in the glue and roll it.
Now put it on a lid or plate, flat. Wait 24 hours to dry. Now when they’re hard put nail polish all around it. Wait another 3 hours and put on string. Now you have you’re beads. Yay!
I asked feeltherainbows to write a tutorial on how she made newspaper beads that I saw on her blog, and she wrote an awesome, easy to follow tutorial. Thanks feeltherainbows! Remember those book paper beads I posted a while back here? This is one way you could make them :) *If you can, see the high res version.
