Craft: Paper Beads

February 28, 2012

By Dina F.

This is a quick and easy craft!

Materials:
– colorful or patterned paper
– white glue (not a glue stick)
– shish-kabob stick (optional)
– scissors or chopper

Instructions:
Pick a hard, flat surface that can be cleaned easily.  Now roll up your sleeves and get ready to work!

1. Take a triangular or rectangular piece of paper.  Starting at the wider end, roll up the paper until at least ½ inch is showing.

Hint: To get a cleaner middle in your bead, roll it on a shish-kabob stick.

2. Dab a drop of glue on the ½ inch you left out.  Push it back onto the bead.

3. Let it dry.  Then you are finished.

Hint: Experiment with different ways to string the beads.
