I have this wonderful stack of adhesive paper...cut into skinny triangles, color, and roll on hollow q-tip sticks. Voila!

Nice to see that this old craft is still around!!  I always thought they were cool and still do!!

Yours are very lovely and colorful!!  I like the hollow q-tip idea--I always used toothpicks!!  Did you use something over them to protect them or is the paper just shiney?

Nice job!

The paper is really old, I had to trim the sides because they were yellowed...I haven't tried to locate it anywhere else..but I will have to when I run out. I hope to find some!

I just used nail varnish to give them protection and shine, and strung them together with some embroidery floss to keep them together.
