I admit to being a tightwad

Yesterday I was browsing ebay looking for some large ball embossing tools.... then I had a lightbulb moment...... I could make one myself... so I did.   I simply stuck  beads onto the ends of a barbecue skewer with some strong glue.   I was a bit worried that the join might be a bit weak so I papier mached around the stick to give it a bit more strength.  I have given it two coats of clear nail polish to seal it......... This morning I checked my email and discovered a £10 off code for Amazon if I spend more than £50.  I have had several items on my wish list for ages so I could easily do that.. I used my 'Christmas Money' and bought some really useful crafting tools. 


  1. Dear Cherie
    Good idea! You could also have made some out of polymer clay and then baked them on the stick - I have made tools for use with polymer clay out of polymer clay!
    Best wishes

  2. Probably last you longer than one you can buy.
