I receive many emails from people asking the different things to do with Nicole's BeadBacking. (NBB) Well the uses are endless, however, today I want to answer the question; how do I graft different colors of NBB together?
Beading projects, journal pages, greeting cards, even place matts, or any other craft that you need color specific areas, here is how you do it. Sooo easy.
Take the colors of NBB that you need and cut to size and shape or leave as is. I use Aleene's Quick Dry Tacky Glue, only because it is fast and it dries completely clear. I have also used Beacon 527.
E6000 is a bit too thick and messy.
Simply put a line of glue on one edge of NBB and set the pieces together. Allow to dry. If you are beading your stiches will give it extra strength. You can also take decorative embroidery stitches on the seams. Or place some Soutache cording on the seams. Again the idea are endless.
NBB matches up better if you cut the pieces together
Use any kind of scissor to easily cut through NBB
Match up the pieces and apply the glue
Once the glue is dry and set you have a strong piece of NBB
This piece has a clear class cab to show you just how cool this technique is.
Hope you try it!
