Is this course for you?... Answer these questions to find out...

  • Do you like the look of this project?
  • Would you like to learn how to make a beaded box?

  • Do you love beading?

If you said 'yes' to any of those questions, this course is going to be exactly what you need!

And, it's a real get not just one or two, but FIVE different designs included all for this one price. Plus, you can mix and match ribbons and parcels to create even more gift boxes!

Are you 'good enough' to make this?

A lot of people might like the look of a project, see how useful it would be, but then they get scared that they're not going to have the skills to make it.

If you are one of those people, I promise you don't need to question your abilities! This tutorial is set up like a real beading class. So, you'll get all the help you need - whatever your level of experience.

It will give you...

  • Downloadable PDF tutorial with comprehensive written instructions and step-by-step photos and diagrams
  • Additional videos demonstrating the techniques
  • Ask questions if you get stuck
  • Work in your own time, at your own pace, all from the comfort of your favourite beading space

You can use as many of those resources as you need. So, if you're just starting out, you will probably need to focus a lot on the video demonstrations to help guide you. You might also have a lot of questions. And you might find you need to show photos of your work, so I can help you fix mistakes. But all of that is included here.

If you're still concerned, you can preview one of the video technique sections down below. So, you can then judge whether you're going to be able to follow and learn from the videos. If you feel happy doing that, then you're going to be absolutely fine making this project!

If you're more advanced, maybe you just download and print out the PDF, then work from that. You can still talk to other students on the course and we'd all love to see what you make.

You also get life-time access to this course. So, as I add new design ideas,you will be able to download those patterns as well. You really are getting a LOT for your money here!

Hi! I'm Katie and I'm here to help you become a better beader. Now, no matter whether you've just started out or you've been beading for a while, you probably come across things you don't understand or can't do.

So, that's where I come in. I've been beading since 2003. I was self-taught originally, so I'm pretty sure that whatever 'pain point' you're currently experiencing, it's something I've also faced and overcome. Which means I understand your frustration, but I can also help you to find a way through it.

My own beading experience covers a multitude of different techniques (beadweaving, French beading, bead embroidery and more!). I've published books, patterns in magazines, I even edited a beading magazine for 3 years! And I'm a qualified teacher.

All of that is very nice, but it's not what drives me. I am passionate about beading, in all its forms, and I want others to share that passion. So, my dream is to help more people, like you, to get the most out of their beading. That's why I set up the 'Become a Better Beader' group and why I started publishing beading courses. I've developed the courses specifically to address the things that people tell me they are struggling with. So, if there's something you find difficult, let me know about it.

You can also access hundreds of free informational blogs about beading and join the 'Better Beader' group at
