Paper Beads Eye Glass Holder

Paper Beads as eye glass holder – great idea!  It is light weight, eye catching and a great way to show your “green” side.  I made it with different size paper beads as you can see here, using just softflex for stringing, a crimp bead and a pair of eyeglass holder finding.  I know that many of you want to know how to make the really small rounder shaped paper beads.  It is the same principle as making the larger tube shape paper beads, just cut the paper the same only a lot smaller, the width of the starting base of your triangle determines how big is your bead going to be.  Also, instead of using a skewer or the bamboo roller I showed in my youtube video, try using a small nail or tapestry needle for making really small round paper beads.  If you don’t have the time to do any of these steps, you can purchase the paper beads in strands at

You will string the paper beads in random size, to about 36 inches or longer depending on how long you want it to be, this time I chose not mix it with other beads.  aubpaper1c
