"Draw" on a picture with metallic threads, then fill in the spaces with clear beadlets to allow the image beneath to show. You can create sparkling ornaments, gift tags, and cards using the same technique.

Skill level: beginner

Materials used in the project pictured; modify sizes and thread colors for your particular design:
  • Kreinik #12 Braid 009HL Emerald Hi Lustre
  • Four flat-backed red and green cabochons or sequins
  • Red and green satin ribbon

Instructions for our model: 

  1. With the glue stick, attach the ornament picture centered onto your cardstock.
  2. Cut the Treasure Tape to be 3" x 3". Remove the white backing and lay centered on your ornament image. Remove the red liner to expose the top sticky area.
  3. Lay the green and red cabochons on the ornament.
  4. Lay the Emerald metallic braid on the ornament in curls, swirls, etc. as desired.
  5. Lay the satin ribbon around the edge of the tape area, overlapping, folding and pressing into the tape as you go along.
  6. When thread decorating is complete, lay the design in a shallow pan or tray and cover remaining sticky areas with Diamond Beadlets®
