Creating a Pearl Spray

If you like to add embellishments to your cards then Creating a Pearl Spray can be right up your street

Here there are two video tutorials on one page for you to view and I hope you will enjoy them both equally


I love to add shiny, sparkly things to my cards and it is usually in the form of flowers, ribbons and pearls ... I think I must have been a Magpie in a  previous life !!

And hat pins are sometimes added as a special touch to "Girly" cards.

But a little while ago I bought some beads and when they came the hole in the centre was too small for the pins to go through.

Now being a frugal crafter I couldn't just let these beads sit there doing nothing and I couldn't just throw them away

So I put them to good use and here is the video to show you what I did.

These little beads are 4 mm

 I have found out  from readers who have emailed me since the video was made that the wire for these sprays is 26 gauge

The effect is very pretty and I hope you will have a try at making some for yourself

You can make these why you sit with the family in the evening and keep them all in a box ready to be used





To buy these sprays can be a little on the expensive side so making your own is the better alternative and you can add as many beads or branches to the sprays as you would like

Once you have made a few of these embellishments then maybe you would like to try adding them to your cards or other projects

The second video will show you how I went about making my cards extra special and I was rather pleased with the effect.

The flowers I have used are from Wild Orchid Crafts and creating a pearl spray can enhance the corsage even more and by making your own for pennies rather than pounds 

If you  do make some of these and add them to your cards then don't forget to take photographs of your designs and add them to the
Gallery Page

That way you will create your own page on this website and  you can tell all your friends to come and see  for themselves what  beautiful creations you have made

It is very easy to do and the more photographs you add the bigger your page will become and it is always good to keep a visual record of the cards that we make.

Then you can look back on them in a few years time and see just how far you have travelled on the road of cardmaking
