|A Sculpey assortment pack in pastel colors is the way to go. I found this one with free shipping.|
What I learned: Next time, I will most likely make thicker beads so that I can use a toothpick and heavier elastic. I will spray the beads before stringing, and will not use an empty conversation heart candy box for packaging. Even though it seemed like a swell idea at the time, one might confuse the bracelet sound the box makes when shaken, with heart candy. Or, I will attach a note saying to peek inside for a special surprise.
|The little cutters were available on amazon with free shipping. I used the smallest of the three hearts.|
|The alphabet stamps can be found here, or at craft stores. The bead baking rack, although not essential, is super convenient and can be found here. And, it comes with the wire used to poke holes through the beads.|
Here is the finished bracelet on Tami's lovely wrist.
