All I ask is that you abide by the Terms & Conditions of using my images – there aren’t many but I would appreciate it if you would respect the ones I do have😍.

The image of Santa giving out presents is actually an old 1911 pic that I have altered and added snow to give it a real wintry feel.

There are more free Christmas printables in the pipeline…

I will be giving away the design for making these beads very soon.

If you are a paper bead maker you may enjoy using the free design I am giving away in my next post.

I’m not sure which day I will be publishing, so if you want to make sure you get notified, just subscribe to this blog and you will be notified of new posts as soon as they come out.

My next post will be about how to use the design and I will be showing you exactly how I made the beads in the picture.

And if anyone is interested in making pillow paper beads, you will love my latest discovery!

It’s been more decades than I want to admit since I discovered the joy of paper beading and in all that time, I have managed to never make pillow beads.

So I was really excited when I discovered a crafter with a channel called Wokos Crafts on YouTube

Woko has some beautiful videos on paper beading, especially the one showing how to make pillow beads.

My first attempt at making pillow beads – I’m sure I’ll get better with practice! Watch Woko’s tutorial if you want to learn.

If you want to learn how to make pillow beads, click the link above for Wokos Crafts and you will see how it is done.

It is a very simple technique and you don’t need a bead tool. Woko is very softly spoken and relaxing to watch.

And if you want to use the same colors that I used, you can download and print my designs onto glossy paper, by clicking the links under the pictures.

And in case you are wondering, there are stringing holes in pillow beads beads but they are in the corners.

If you liked my free Christmas printables, keep coming back because there will be many more free printables in the coming months.

And if there is anything in particular that you would like, maybe a certain colour scheme or pattern, let me know.

A typical paper bead design – suggestions for colors are welcome.

I do have an etsy shop where I sell paper bead templates but as life is way more than just about money, I love being able to give away some designs on this website too.

I also sell paper bead making tools in my shop for making small hole beads (3mm) and large hole European style beads (5mm).

But coming up very soon, I am going to show you how I make beautiful European Style paper beads without using my bead tools.

I will be demonstrating how I get the core holes to the perfect size for the bead cores to fit.

I will be showing you how to make these beads using my template very soon.

Why am I giving away a free printable design each week at the moment?

Well, so many people are stranded at home without access to craft supplies right now and so I began my Crafting In a Crisis series of videos that I am uploading each week.

This week is Crafting In a Crisis No 5 and as with the other free downloads, you need to watch the video over on YouTube using the links further up this page and get the password from the video.

In the video I show you yet another way to easily make paper beads without a proper bead tool.

Once you have watched the video and you can go to this link, which is my free downloadables page, and find the design below.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope see you next week with a tutorial on how to make faux wooden beads with another free printable I will be uploading.

And for those who don’t have access to the 1mm elastic like I use in my videos for stringing the beads…

…I have a special tip in next week’s tutorial for how you can still make your stretchy bracelet without elastic. Yes really! I’ve been racking my brains for how it couild be done while people can’t get out to buy craft supplies and I have cracked it!

You won’t believe how easy it is!

Hope you enjoy using your DIY Boho bracelet template – see you next week.

Digital Freebies

Who doesn’t like free stuff? Especially when they are digital free stuff for your crafts.

You may have noticed in my last post, I included a link to a digital freebie of small circle designs.

I created them to use in various crafts including scrapbooking, card making or for making pendants – basically, any creative activity where you can use small, colourful circular designs.

This time, I am building on my digital freebies.

I have added another 6×4 inch sheet of 1 inch circular designs that could be used in any creative craft you want, including bottle cap pendants, or 1 inch bezel pendants.
