Paper Beads Experiment! #paperbeads

I saw some great tutorials on paper bead making and thought I would give it a try. I used vintage print paper and typed words. I’m also experimenting with bracelet designs.

I made my own paper beading tool out of a bamboo skewer. I split it on one end then used vintage print paper to wrap the holding end. I then applied two coats of Modge Podge. The final coat will be varnished.


Next I rolled hundreds of tube paper beads. I thought it would be relaxing.



I really loved the colors. I used distress inks.
