I have fallen in love with these beads (although I've just made the smaller form), and in my first attempts I tried the toothpick base, but when they were dry, about 20% were permanently stuck to the toothpick!!!

SO, I talked my husband into making a tool to avoid that complication, and it works GREAT: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=304591.0

Thanks for another way to use them. This bracelet looks really NEAT!

McJulie-O - Thanks for the info on making a tool! I may have to make one like yours....The trick is getting the center hole small enough that the glass beads don't go inside of the paper........or get bigger glass beads......thinking ...thinking...thank s again!!

Lovely !!
I wanted to try this too, only I made a terrible mistake ...
I glued the strip and than place the toothpick on it ... so now it's dry and I can't get the paper of the toothpick *fool*

Gigiz,
It looks like that wouldn't be a problem if you used the same beads as above....I'm using some spacer type beads to separate mine, but the holes really aren't THAT big, not a whole lot bigger than toothpicks, anyway.
