I am quite sure that when you view the photos below, you will agree that I must be in the wrong business...I should be a metallic bathroom toiletries box bead maker!
AND THE OTHER...
When I woke up this morning at 5:30am, and needed a new tube of toothpaste, I was immediately struck by the shining beauty of the box it came in! When I opened the flaps of the box, they, too, were shiny metallic...so I cut a long triangle, and came out in the dark, flipped on the light, grabbed a pencil and some Elmer's glue...and got to rollin! Here is the giant bauble I ended up with...and I am in love!
You can wrap around a skewer, a toothpick, or a pencil...but this thickness of paper worked very well on a pencil. I happen to love the colors, and it fits in with the colors of beads already on the strand. I am seeing a trend here lately...I don't choose things, as much as they seem to choose me! It's odd.
Yes, this should be just the job for me! :)
What toiletries box might be next, you ask??? Only time will tell. To be continued (one day)!!!
