Can you see them?

Worked on some more beaded pens over the weekend. My oldest DD loves camouflage these days so I made these for her and her friends to use at school.
Here are some helpful tidbits I have learned from beading all of these pens...
1) Bright colors show better through the beads
2) If you use card stock and not DP's you need to increase the size of the sticky tape you cut.
3) You can use the Xyron to put adhesive on the back of the paper you use to save on sticky tape.
4) SU now sells clear Micro Beads!! (However they do not tell you how much the package is holding?!

I am selling beaded pens and Lip balm now, so if you can not get the supplies in your area give me a shout. (They are shown on the right hand side of my page.)

Do not forget to leave a comment on Fluffles blog candy below, I will draw on Sunday Afternoon.
Have a great day!
