lmcb - embellish it

Hey everyone
Lasting memories had a new challenge up last Sunday "embellishments not normally used in scrapbooking" but I am a bit slow on getting my LO finished but I still wanted to do this challenge....  I have seen some people try to make their own enamel dot from pony beans and wanted to give it a go.    Here is my inspiration for you - using melted pony beads
And a close up of my melted pony beads
To make them melt I popped them into the over on parchment paper at 400 and watched.  I have heard some people complain about the smell but it wasn't strong at all 
Here is a close up of the two sides
And some more close ups of the melted pony beads
