2011 Camp Craft No. 4: Wire mesh jewelry holders with beads

When I discovered the different types of hardware cloth and chicken wire stacked in the back of The Home Depot, my mind started churning out all kinds of projects I could make with them. Baskets and suncatchers were my first notions, but jewelry holders were more economical, practical, and fun for teenage girls.

Next, cut vertically up to (NOT THROUGH) the top folded edge. The finished bow depends entirely on the width of your cuts and the length of your scrap of paper.
