Daiso Find= Bead Roller

Posted on Aug 13, 2018 in How-To's / Tutorials | Comments Off on Daiso Find= Bead Roller

While I love that you enjoy and support my bamboo rollers (they allow you to grasp and roll several strips at once), there are a variety of options when it comes to rolling paper beads. Among other things, people use toothpicks, bamboo skewers, pencils, and knitting needles. I’m adding another option…screwdrivers!

Check out my video on how a small screwdriver set (that I purchased for $1.00!) can be used as bead rollers.

I purchased the set in my video at DAISO, a very popular store here in So. California. If you don’t have a Daiso near you, check out your local dollar store and your likely to find a comparable set.
