Finally my love of crafts is understood :-P

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!

Anyone interested in a personal swap?

I love making paper beads, very therapeutic in front of the telly.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

I made a lot of them for an art class project and now plan to make more, yours look really nice.

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?
