Here is fun and easy craft to make. When you
have made your beads, you can make beautiful pieces of jewellery
for yourself and your friends.

approximately 2 inches or less across the bottom and about 10

||Place the triangle wrong side up on the table.
Lay the knitting needle or straw along the wide end of the triangle.

||Tightly roll the strip around the knitting
needle or straw twice.
||Put glue on the remainder of your triangular
strip and continue to roll the paper evenly.
||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.
