I have been playing with paper beads made from thicker paper and cardboard. I used the thin cardboard/heavy card stock from a 6 pack like the one pictured.
I broke it down flat and trimmed it down to the workable parts. I think Eye of the Hawk 6 packs make great beads!
After all the trimming I used a ruler and an x-acto knife to cut the bead strips.
They can be rolled around any kind of dowel but I use a bead roller. I use tacky glue as a base seal as usual and used a spray sealer to finish them off.
I love these beads!
Thanks for reading!
