So far I have made these, the picture is using the front of the rule book, money and a matte. I used a Dollar Store frame that I spray painted blue. I used the money to make paper beads and paired it with a token from the game and pearls to make a sweet little bracelet that I think I will give to a friend's daughter when the challenge is over.

These are paper beads made from a paper bag painted copper, glass beads and an owl focal. The glass beads were $2 or so at Wal*mart and the focal (also from Wal*mart) was $3 so a pretty cheap project. I already had the paper painted copper ready to go from another project so I only had to roll the beads and finish them http://www.favecrafts.com/Bracelets/Recycled-Paper-Bag-Bracelets and as always I recommend a Krafti Roller for the beads http://justjenndesignz.blogspot.com/2009/02/rolled-paper-beads.html. I also had the findings on hand (jump rings, closure and crimps).

I was a little intimidated by this contest when they first started talking about it. I went back and forth on whether I should enter or not. There was a lot of talk about toothbrushes O.o I entered anyway and I am excited about the first contest. We are supposed to take a game that we get for cheap and make something crafty from it. My first thought was Monopoly and I happened to find a Spongebob one that the lady who is selling it to me is letting me have for cheap. What will I create? Stay tuned!

I love these beads, they are fun to make and use whatever color acrylic paint you have...Here I have made them gold and copper.
Can you believe these were once lowly paper bags?
I use my Kraft-i Roller to make these with.
