These are super easy and the finished beads are both pretty and unique. They are very versatile as well these are just a few pieces I’ve made using paper beads:
What you’ll need:
Magazine pages or decorative paper
Pen or Marker
Toothpick or bamboo skewer
1. Mark the top and bottom short edges of your paper in equal increments (the size is totally up to you).
2. Using the marker and straight edge alternate points until your page is covered in connected triangles as shown:
3. Cut out the triangles. Starting at the widest end wrap the triangle snugly but not too tight around a toothpick or wooden skewer. Glue down the point.
4. Pull off toothpick and let dry. You can spray with clear polyurethane or paint with clear nail polish for a glassy, glossy look.
