Playing with Paper

When a clever marketing person dubbed Sally Hansen’s combination base and top coat “Double Duty”, I’m pretty sure he was touting the fact that it’s two NAIL products in one.

But I’m using it for two separate purposes: Nails and BEADS!

You remember those paper beads we saw on our group-shopping extravaganza last week? Well, afterwards, I was inspired to grab a piece of scrapbook paper and try my hand at making a paper bead. (Can you imagine? This bead-lover had never made a paper bead before this week!)

Here they are with their manicure, um, I mean glossy top coat. It gives them a slight sheen and will protect them from a stray splash of water!

Now to figure out a jewelry design for them . . .
