DIY: Paper Jewelry
My mom taught me this cool way to make your own beads out of paper that she learned how to do when she was younger. It's pretty simple.
Materials: ruler, pencil, some sold magazines, scissors, glue and anything you need to make your jewelry (i.e. string, jewelry wire and pliers)
1. Trace out/Cut long triangular strips from magazine paper
NOTE: However wide, narrow, and long your strips are will dictate how big your
beads will be.
2. Take the widest end of the strip and start rolling it TIGHT.
3. Glue the ends to secure the bead is nice and tight.
Voila! You have some cute beads to make some jewelry!
It's pretty amazing what you can do with paper! What do you all think?
Happy Friday Everybody!
