    I know this is a dumb question, but what do you Savages do with the little bottles of ATC pearls, bugle beads and such??? Do you glue them, string them, or just what???? I love the little bottles….but there must be something clever to do with them besides what my tiny brain might come up with…..

        I love mine, but I have only used them a few times. I think you can do whatever YOU want to with them!

          Those little beads make for perfect flower centers! Just plop down a blob of glue in the center of your flower and gently add your beads to it. 🙂

          That's all I do with them. I have strung them a few times but dangl if my eyes are not shot to hell and threading a needle is like sticking it in my eye.

          i will pour glossy accents over them too I guess.

          OK….. I did think of flower centers, but I hadn't seen anyone use them??? They are really cute, but my workspace is not as cute as the bottles! LOL!!

              use them as 'fillers' in heavily detailed paper. Rather than fussy cutting something, outline the design, fill it with zip dry and apply your dimensional embellies =o)

              It's a bit hard to see here but this was a layout I did using beads for the flower centers. I made the flowers then added the beads just with glue.

                I use them often – but i think you are seeing them in the flowers because they are not close up photos of flowers. So hard to notice.
