I took some regular computer paper. I then cut it to size. I stamped a variety of backgrounds to match the theme of the bracelet - Red, White, and Blue. I'm not sure if it is the Olympics coming up. Or maybe it was because we just celebrated the 4th of July. But, I have been drawn to that color scheme for a couple of months now.
Here are the papers that I stamped.
Here is a closeup.
I die cut them with the PTI bead dies just like you would with their bead paper. I used the same technique just with my own paper. This is what came from it.
I am really excited about this bracelet. I am planning on gifting it to my sister-in-law tonight. They love July 4th and all things American. I hope she likes it and can use it.
I also made the traditional PTI Bead Paper bracelet. It turned out very elegant in my opinion. At least my 5 year old daughter thinks it is Bee-you-ti-Ful!!! :)
This was another great challenge. Thanks to the PTI team for such an inspiring day. I am going out for a while with my amazing husband - just the two of us!! I will hopefully be back later tonight to finish up some more projects. Until then . . .
