I'm teaching an online paper bead class January 24

It's paper fondue! I'm so excited, and hoping you'll join me!

This will be a really fun, freeing class! Try to get a few friends together, have each bring a few supplies and you'll really have a good time. We will be making paper beads and decorating them with UTEE. This is not intended to be a costly endeavour, rather use up your itty bitty scraps to create awesome chunky beads you can make into jewelry or decorate your paper creations.

Time of class will be determined closer to the date and I'll let you know. Class format will include videos via youtube, directions via PAO Forum and I'll be live and answering questions inPAO Live chat All class info will be available during and after class, so don't worry if you miss it, it'll be around for awhile.

Please collect and have the following materials ready to go at class time:
Mandatory: a melting pot, ultra thick embossing powder (UTEE), heat resistant craft sheet, skewers (metal or wooden, wood is easiest), varied paper scraps, scissors.

Optional : Colored & metallic embossing powders, micro beads, pearl ex powder, colored thread/fiber, anything itty bitty, colored markers, old book pages, markers, newspaper, magazines. Collect things that are very small and might be easily encorporated.

If you are not already registered at PAO, I suggest you do so before the day of class, and look around a bit to familiarize yourself with it. There is a lot of talent there as well as a gazillion active swaps and inspiration. Passwords must include numbers, little letters and big letters, it's tricky but keeps the spam out. You will need to be registered to have access to the links and videos.

I hope to see you in class!
