Love it that you used a video to make a tutorial for ABS blog. And the tutorial is great. Wonderful idea for making bead caps. And I have been using them lately so this is especially great for me. Thanks so much Heather.
I agree with Lorelei! I am headed down to Harbor Freight after work. What size disc did you use in the demo? The bead caps really add zip to a design. Thanks for sharing this wonderful video.
