Here I'm working on rolling some of The Hobbit beads
I like to get creative when I work. I use wax paper have under the pages when I run the adhesive on it, bobby pins to hold them closed till I can glue them, and my pen roller.
Next after I'm done rolling the beads, I move onto the gluing part.
My gluing station is this covered wooden ottoman cube thing. I flipped the lid so I have the hard surface inside of the padded. Again I use the wax paper to put my glue on. There's my latex glues to keep the glue off of me. Learned real quick with the water resistant epoxy I use that I need them! Getting water resistant glue off once dry is not fun! Also have my foam brush for applying the glue and my holder.
a close-up of my holder. I totally made it myself out of clay and yes those are toothpicks sticking out! I swear half the time I use regular household items when crafting.
Hope you enjoyed this glimpse into what it takes to make the book page bracelets I do. And as a reward here are two new bracelets that you will see very soon: Clockwork Angel (Infernal Device series) and The Fault in Our Stars.
