I recently had to make six ornaments for a swap. While looking through my supply cabinets to see what I could do, I came across a package of wood beads that I had bought at a stamp show several years ago. The beads looked like wood dominoes with double holes in them and smooth on both sides. I colored the beads with alcohol inks and stamped snowflakes on them with silver pigment ink and embossed with detail silver pearl powder. To seal them, I squirted on some crystal Stickles and spread it all over the bead with my finger. I finished the ornments by beading them.
