Craft: Paper Beads

Here is fun and easy craft to make. When you have made your beads, you can make beautiful pieces of jewelry for yourself and your friends. Get ready to have some beading fun!

What you need:

wrapping paper or colorful magazine pages
scissors
glue stick
a knitting needle or straw

What you do:

1. Cut triangles from your paper approximately 2 inches or less across the bottom and about 10 inches tall. Each triangle will make one bead. Cut as many as you need.
 
2. Place the triangle wrong side up on the table. Lay the knitting needle or straw along the wide end of the triangle. (See picture at left)
 
3. Tightly roll the strip around the knitting needle or straw twice.
 
4. Put glue on the remainder of your triangular strip and continue to roll the paper evenly.
 
5. To finish the bead, glue down the narrow end and hold in place until the glue sets. Slip bead off of the needle or straw and continue working steps 2-4 until you have as many beads as you want.
 
6. String beads on heavy thread, a shoe lace or wool. Tie ends together.
