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.

Paper Bead Samples

     The image above displays some sample beads to show you what your bead may look like when rolling one to four strips at a time. Your results may differ depending on how thick your paper is. The ones that we used were pretty thick so the beads turned out a little bit wider. Nevertheless they still look gorgeous!

We sell some of these strips at our store, while supplies last. Visit our webpage to find our location and store hours.


Here are some more strips we sell at $2.50 for 24 strips


Some close up pictures to get a better idea of what it looks like.
