Look what I found from my parents house! No, there are no chocolates inside anymore (sadly) but something just as sweet.
My old seed bead crafts! I think these are so cute, although quite pointless. I remember spending hours with my friends making these. It was always very hard to find new instructions and nice-coloured beads, since there was only one store in my hometown that sold these. Great that my mum saved these. Anyway, I just had to take pictures...
To make these, you'll need thin metallic wire, seed beads and lot's of imagination (or clear instructions, like I had...). My beads and instructions are Japanese, made by Kutsuwa. I don't know if they sell these anymore, I hope so! The bead bottles are so cute.
Emma thought that these were really nice and wanted to try by herself. It seems that the one-dimensional figures are easy enough for a six-year-old but the three dimensional ones require more patience. She made an apple and half of an ice-cream and then she got bored.
I tried as well.
This was so much fun and a great craft for these freezing winter days (-25degrees Celcius...).
If you want to try these by yourselves, here are two patterns for you to try: a piece of cake and a butterfly.
