On a Roll with Paper Beads

Good Monday Morning!

Last week I came across this VIDEO which was part of Craft TV Weekly's short lived Plum & Verdigris series. Nikki shared how to create paper beads and how to make unique pieces of jewelry with them. I had several small strips and miscellaneous scraps of the beautiful Pattered Basics Brights papers left from some of my recent blog posts, and thought, these would make perfect paper beads.

Use a craft knife and ruler to cut the papers.
Choose interesting stamps to add embossing to your rolled beads.
These are some of the beads I created.
Large bracelet created with paper beads.
My daughter loved this one and asked if she could have it.
It fit her perfectly!

I was so proud when she asked if she could wear it the first day of school.

I hope you will check out the video and make your own paper bead jewelry.

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by!
