Ideas Please


Would you believe these beautiful beads are made out of paper? They were made just for me by the talented Karen at RunsWithScissors4! She used gorgeous rosy paper in my favorite shades of pink and green. Now, I need to decide what I would like to make with them! My initial idea is to use them as embellishments on crochet flower gift tags. Or maybe little tassel ends for a drawstring bag? I would love to hear more ideas if you have some!!

Crochet them into a bowl! Make rings. Necklaces. Gift tags. :o)

how pretty those beads are! i would suggest that you string one onto the thread of a tie-on tag and attach it to your creations.

I agree with jessijewels idea, that would be sort of like an extra added touch, and in your signature colors to boot!!

Thanks so much for the ideas...I think I will go with Jessi's good idea for now, and keep thinking. My gift tags didn't work out as I'd hoped, and they are a little too small for toggles...I have been playing around with some new stitches in my free time, so there could be a new bracelet in my future...
