I got to know Ralitsa when she asked me if she could post my kumihimo tutorial on her blog which led me to visit her blog and I was amazed by the beautiful paper beads she made out of paper napkins!  I talked her into doing a video tutorial:)

Paper Beads Out Of Napkins

They’re like peppermint candy, don’t you think?  You can see this picture enlarged  blog

My favorite is this magenta colored beads, they remind me of pomegranate.




  1. Thank you! I’m glad that all of you like my beads. It was my first “how to” video, but not the last. 🙂
    Yes, it works with tissue paper, but it’s a little bit more hard to glue it.
    It works with newspaper and junk-mail sheets, as well as with crepe paper. 🙂
    Greetings and thank you again!

  2. I’ve never seen anything like this before. Really cool. Thanks for sharing this with us.

  3. These are so cool and the tutorial makes them look so simple to make, Im going to try making some of my own. Thanks Ralitsa!! 🙂

  4. Janice Mae, let me know how it works for you and I will tell you how mine turns out.

  5. Great idea. I wonder if it would work with tissue paper also? The beads are beautiful.

    • Hi Gisela,

      I thought about the same thing and I’m going to try that, too.
