How To Make Paper Beads


Good morning I have a fun tutorial for you this morning. Its all about Making Paper Beads using magazinesMaking paper beads is a great way to recycle all your old newspapers and magazines. 

You will need:
  • Paper cutter
  • Magazine
  • Ruler
  • Glue
  • Pencil
  • Kebab Stick
  • Clear Nail Polish

Step 1: Cut your paper. Cut long triangles out of magazines. The base of the triangle will be the width of the bead and the longer the triangle is, the fatter the bead will become.


Step 2: Apply some glue where the red arrow is pointing. Then roll the bead. Starting at the wide end, roll the paper triangle around itself on the Kebab stick. Make sure you roll the bead tightly.


Step 3: Once you have finish rolling. Put some glue the tip of the triangle. Hold it for a moment to help the glue to set.


Step 4: Apply some clear nail polish to add some shine. Let it dry thoroughly, making sure it doesn’t stick to anything. 


And you're done! It is as simple as that! Let me know in the comments if you have a go...
