i made the small end on the inside, but have done it both ways... its up to you really, and up to the plastic, if it will stay rolled tight enough and if you can keep it closed with the pliers.

The paint was on the inside of those, but i have coloured both sides and the colour is MUCH better.

I think it was a fuji water bottle, but any will work... the coloured plastic ones, like mt dew are great for a beea that is a uniform colour.

Thanks!!!

You recycled and so you are wonderful.
Really..even if these beads didn't utilize recycling I would think they were fantastic....since they do, they're perfect!
