Seven Days Elastic Bracelet

Posted on Jun 1, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 3 comments

We’ve made so many paper bead elastic bracelets because they are so easy to do and elastics just go perfectly well with paper beads because they have bigger holes that can accommodate the knot of the elastic and light enough, you barely notice they are there on your wrist.  With that in mind, I made seven strands of bracelets that is so fun to be worn together.  I used olive shaped paper beads and small round beads with seed beads in between.


It looks nice mixed with the small round paper beads or whatever other shapes you have made.


We chose black 6/0 seed beads to go with it, we thought it’s going to bring out the pretty color of the paper beads and some African trade beads.


We tied gross grain ribbon around it or you can just leave it as it is.


I don’t mind wearing two sets of these!  Ridiculous?  I don’t thinks so, it’s just another way of showing the green side of you 🙂


We will have another feature of a fellow-paper bead enthusiast and a how to on the paper bead cones, so stay tune.  Thank you for stopping by.


  1. That looks so pretty! the bow stands out too =]… I made a blog. I try to update it a lot. I have a new paper bead necklace i have to update this is my blog site.

  2. Wow, it’s amazing how beautiful paper beads can be. My sister brought me some from Rwanda when she studied abroad over there. I was thinking about trying to make my own. I bet you could dye papershreddings and roll them up into beads. The pattern on the paper wouldn’t be as cool as say a magazine but because the shreds are parallel not tapering only the very end would show meaning you could have different shaped beads with more uniformed colors. Sorry, just a thought, I’m just starting a blog on different ways to reuse shredded paper and am trying to get as many ideas as possible. Love your beads!


  3. These are so cute, such a basic design yet they look so nice bundled together like that, Ill have to make myself some. 🙂
