Make Paper Beads

Tools & Materials

  • Magazines (or paper of any kind)
  • Pen
  • Ruler
  • Skewer 
  • Scissors
  • White glue
  • Mod Podge (optional)

On a magazine page draw long triangles the height of the page.  The width of the base of the triangle will determine how long the bead will be. 

Cut out.

Put a dab of glue at the point of the triangle.  Then using the skewer, starting at the wide end of the triangle, roll up the bead. 

After the glue is dry you can optionally apply Mod Podge to the bead for a shiny finish.  
Let dry for a few hours then, they are ready to put on a piece of yarn or string for a fab camp bracelet or necklace.
