Materials:

  • Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue
  • Bread – 1 slice
  • Plastic cup
  • Craft stick
  • Extra fine glitter
  • Pasta machine or rolling pin
  • Small cookie cutter in the shape of your choice
  • Needle tool or toothpick
  • Tissue paper
  • Wood skewer
  • Scissors
  • Glossy sealer
  • Silk cord

Instructions:

  1. Prepare your bread dough according to EcoHeidi’s directions at this link: Bread Dough Roses. Condition the dough with a pasta machine or rolling pin. Add small amounts of glitter, fold the dough and roll it out again. Repeat this step until the glitter looks right to you.

  2. Choose a small cookie cutter to make your focal piece. I altered a round cutter to make a coffee cup shape. I bent the metal tube to cut out the handle.Allow dough to air-dry thoroughly.

  3. Coat a rubber stamp with a light coat of acrylic paint and allow to dry. With a dry brush, paint a very light coat of acrylic paint onto the area of the stamp you’ll use.

  5. Give both sides of the focal piece a coat or two of glossy sealer. I’m using a clear dimensional sealer here.

  6. For the tissue paper beads, cut a 20″ x 1″ piece of tissue paper. Fold the strip in half and in half again. You’re going to cut the strip in half along the length. You’ll use the folds as a guide.

  7. Cut, beginning 1/4″ from one edge, up to the first fold.

  9. From the center, slowly cut your way toward the other side, ending up 1/4″ from the edge at the third fold. Finish cutting along that line.You now have two long skinny triangle strips with blunt tips.
