Directions:

 

Preparing your ice cream:

Take the paper clip and unbend the wire to create a stand to hold a bead as shown. Place a 14mm

white pearl onto the wire. Take one of the scribbles paints, depending on your favorite “flavor” and

squeeze paint along the top of the pearl to look like a “topping” Let the paint dry.

 

To assemble ice cream cone:

Take a 3” head pin and slide the brown cone shaped glass bead on with the pointed side down.

Next place your 14mm white pearl bead covered with the “topping”. This is your “scoop of ice cream”.

Next slide on a 4mm red facet bead for the “cherry on top”.

 

Keep the beads closely together on the head pin. Take the round nose pliers and make a wire wrap

loop above the red facet bead with the remaining length of wire on the head pin. Wrap wire so that

the beads do not slide around on the head pin. Cut off the excess wire. Slide the loop through the

split ring on the phone strap and attach to your cell phone, bag, etc.
