Since I featured this project...
and this one...
(Decorative Curved Square and Flower Play)
I received lots of requests for enamel dots.
They are actually quite hard to get hold of so I was delighted to read in this month's
edition of Simply Cards and Papercraft that you can make your own.
So here is Lisa Hausmann's technique tried at home in my kitchen late last night!
You need a baking tray, a non-stick liner and Hama beads (or some similar beads).
Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
Evenly spread your beads.
Pop them in the oven and this how they looked after about 10 minutes.
It is recommended that you 'cook' them for about 30 minutes, a little more if the
holes have not filled in.
Here are mine after 45 minutes, I've got a pretty hot fan oven which I think
explains why some of the circles are a little distorted as the liner moved a little.
I'm really happy with the yellow ones, super handy for flower middles.
All in all well worth doing and a fraction of the price.
Today celebrating my niece's 21st Birthday, pub lunch. Bella is invited...
zero calories if you eat outside - honest!
Take care friends.
