DIY's at Embellished Me Happy

This month's challenge over at EMH is all about diy embellishments. I love making my own embellishments because (1) ithey often add more charater to my projects and (2) I am cheap.
For today's diy is not one I came up with but a friend of mine saved me from tossing out all of my pony beads that I had when I was little doing bead crafts.
 Enamled dots are all the rage in the scrapbooking industry right now but those things are expensive for a pack. Since I have not found them anywhere by me at knew I need to make my own.
All I did was place some pony beads on nonstick foil and baked at 400 for 10-15 minutes., depends on how big you want the dots
Note: Since the smell of melting plastic is nasty I did this outside on my porch in a toaster oven.
After a couple of afternoons of doing this I ended up with this.
 Here is a card I created that used those dots.
Supplies: pattern paper: (Crate Paper), twine (Timeless Twine), stickers (American Crafts and Lily Bee Designs), ink (Quick Quotes), washi tape and stitch template (Ameican Crafts)
 I used twine to stitched those arrows.
Be sure to link up you DIY embellishement here for a chance at this month's prize.
