I love working with Gelli® printing. I have lots of gel-printed papers and decided to make these forms from left-over cardboard tubes that many of my decorative yarns come wound on. (I guess I should confess -- I never throw anything away!) I painted the inside and outside of the cardboard tube with black acrylic paint, cut the papers to size, and then glued them to the outside using gel medium. I also covered the outside surface with gel medium to protect the paper from wear and tear.
Loved how they turned out and just wish my hand was smaller so I could wear these as bracelets!
