Braided – day 73

Posted on Mar 15, 2011 in 365 Paper Bead Creations | 2 comments

This is a very simple way to string your paper beads or beads by braiding them using a cord.  I used paper yarn for mine, but you can use hemp, cotton or linen thread.

To make it easier, you need to tape the cords into a table if you don’t have a hemp board, this way you can have a tight braid.  In case you don’t know, it is just like braiding hair 🙂

I finished it with a simple button and loop closure.  The turtle shell pendant completed the “beachy” look.

  1. I have braided Brazilian bracelets when I was young girl, I think that’s pretty much the same technique … it’s looks very pretty with paper beads !
