I've crafted many things that I probably should have posted already, but I guess I never felt proud enough to make them my first post.
Lately, I've been inspired by Amelialune to make paper beads. I'm just learning, so they aren't perfect, but here's my collection so far.

I'll post them as thumbnails so this doesn't get overwhelming  Smiley


Black Striped


Pink Striped


Turquoise & Purple

Some of my favs so far

Green Striped


Purple & Black Striped


Brown Striped


Red & White Striped


Blue & Black Striped


Grey Scrapbook Paper


Purple Scrapbook Paper


White Wrapping Paper

I find that this is quickly becoming an addiction, so I intend to buy some paper bead rollers this weekend and hopefully I'll get a more polished result with practice.

Thanks for looking! Questions or comments welcome!

Your beads are really pretty, and I especially like how the paper looks when it's rolled up - the beads actually look fairly uniform, which is nice. You made good choices of paper. Do you have any plans for them?
