First Day Of Fall Paper Bead Trade

Posted on Sep 29, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 4 comments

Our Second Paper Bead Trade is official today!  It is still open to anyone who would like to join – as long as I will get your beads on October 23rd.  From today until we end the trade I would like to devote my posts to how-to’s and projects to inspire everyone, hopefully our Gallery will be up by then.  The last bead swap we had, we didn’t really specify what we were supposed to make, this time I think it will be nice if we all make the same thing and I suggest a three strand bracelet – a tutorial will be posted of course.  We don’t have to decide at this point, I will be showing you different things and we can decide then.  Today, Kayla made paper beads out of scrap book paper.


As usual I have fun taking pictures!


What do you have when you marry lucite beads and paper beads?


Today, it got cooler in Glendora and I can feel Fall already…..



  1. I have been away and forgot how many beads to send for the Bead Trade. I have many made but one can never make enough!

    • Hi Cathy, welcome back! You need to make at least 36 beads, smaller tubes and round one preferable. Thanks. Janice

  2. The lucite beads make ot look so awesome!!! Fresh and funky!!!

  3. I love how this necklace turned out with your beads Kayla! Love the lucite beads with it.
