6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: paper beads. on: February 15, 2007 01:39:41 PM
This is how I make my paper beads:

1. Collect pages of magazines/pretty paper and cut into long triangular strips. I find that the beads look "rounder" if you don't make the slope on the sides too steep.. like it should be really gradual. That probably didn't make any sense  Lips sealed

2. Get a toothpick, or what I use when I cant find one is the inside of a Biro pen lol. Get the thick end of the paper and tightly wrap the paper. I glue it at like the last 5cm because I hate glue. I get it everywhere.

3. Paint the bead with clear nail polish (sometimes I use clear with glitter) and then leave to dry for a few minutes. Take it off the toothpick carefully. Don't wrap too tight or it will unravel while you take it off.

I hope that helped, tell me if you have any questions Smiley

Oh, you can also make other shaped beads by cutting grooves in the triangles.

I was looking through my collection of junk, and found some little diamante (sp?) jewels meant to stick on mobile phones, some sheer black ribbon and little sky blue origami stars I made a while ago. I flattened out the star, and poked the ribbon through the little pocket on the top layer. I puffed it up into a star again and put on the other stars. Then I stuck the jewels onto the ribbon in the gaps. This is what I came up with:


My little wooden man modelling the bracelet.

To show how it does up.

Me wearing it.

I don't think I'll actually wear it, but it was fun to make and I was bored Smiley
