Tips And Techniques

You can create fabulous beaded embellishments like this with triple packs of bead and glitter.
Firstly cut or punch out the shape you want from Magic Sheets - double sided adhesive sheets. Remove the backing paper and stick to your card or favour box. For the next step you will need a shallow box like a shoe box lid to catch the excess beads and glitter.
Remove the protective layer from the magic sheet shape and start with the larger beads. Shake onto the sticky shape and press onto the adhesive. Once you have added the large beads to all your shapes, clear the excess out of the box and repeat with the micro beads. These will nearly fill the gaps.
Finally, repeat with the glitter which will ensure you have completely covered the adhesive and have a gorgeous sparkly beaded embellishment. Each pack will cover lots of shapes, so it is really cost-effective.
Magic sheets and glitter packs can be found in the Craft Essentials section of our shop.
