Paper Craft Weekend Challenge - product challenge

My second post of the weekend is also for the Paper Craft Weekend Challenge. Caroline's challenge was to use beads. I have a very limited supply of beads, but I did buy these rochaille beads several years ago in the hopes of using  them for a Christmas project. Well, that never happened,  however, I am working on some tags for a tag swap at an event I am attending next week. I thought, how can I incorporate these beads into these tags? A simple solution was to add a row of them to the tag, and thread a few on some white twine. Simple, but I like it enough to add this embellishment to all the tags I made. The cardstock is from My Mind's Eye, Colorful Christmas collection (this was from a couple years ago).Beads from Westrim. I used Avery Shipping tags purchased at Office Max for the base. I'm liking these! Oh, I piped a line of Aileen's craft glue to the tags and placed the beads into the glue. I threaded the beads onto very thin white twine and tied knots on either side of the beads. Easy peasy.
