Marc’s Fancy Bead Glass Markers

I am certainly going to make a few sets of these glass markers to give as small fairing gifts this Christmas, a brilliant idea for using up odd beads, as soon as I can dig out some of my long lost Christmas charms that is!

Marc generally puts them in packets of six, but to be honest you could go the whole hog and put them in some right fancy (personalised?) boxes to match.
