I had to teach the YW on sunday and made this super cute handout....but of course forgot to take a pic...darn! Sabrina wanted me to make some for a couple of her friends so I did..aren't they cute! They are bookmarks. I just used the beading wire and my crystals, and then used the shrinky dinks for the charm. For the young women the charm had Daughter of God and was attached to a handout that had a couple of quotes to go with the lesson. I had to make 27 of them....they turned out super cute!



Some of you have asked how to make these....so you will need beading wire (walmart or Michaels) crimping beads, your beads and shrinky dink inkjet printer paper. All of these I found at Michaels. Follow the instructions for the shrinky dink as directed..very simple. Then you string the wire through a crimp bead and the shrinky dink and then clamp with nosehead pliers, cut of excess wire, not the actual length though. By the way the length of the bookmark was 12 in. Bead your beads and then another crimp bead, clamp. Towards the other end of the wire clamp a crimp bead and string a couple more beads or crystals and clamp again another crimping bead...voila! you are done, very simple! Check out infarrantlycreative.blogspot.com, she also has some other ideas for this too.!
