In the past I have made beaded pens by stamping on a mailing label....but I wanted a sports team. I went online found a graphic, played with it in Photoshop, personnalize the graphic then printed the graphic on printer paper. I ran it through my sticker xyron then wrapped it around the RSVP pen. Then the rest is the same for beading a pen, get the red sticky tape and wrap it around the pen, heat it then press pen into the beads and roll it on the counter to make sure all the beads are stuck.
My friend really loved it. Just a quick project that you can make for anyone you know who has a favorite team, TV show etc. If you have any questions, let me know. I am happy to help.

Sometimes when I am stuck and can't seem to make a card or a page, I look for inspiration in galleries or blogs. Sometimes looking at someone's work will just trigger an idea. When all else fails I try to find a sketch to help me along.
A few weeks ago, I wanted to make a card, but couldn't seem to get going. I went out to get the mail and I saw this cute stride rite advertisement and new instantly that I would make a card based on this ad. This is what I came up with. Of course I didn't have the same colors but I am sure you get the idea. I just made a regular sized card with an extra inch or so that I scored to flap over the card. Thanks for stopping by, I hope I will have a page to show you soon.
