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.
