Paper Bead Curtains

I finally got the courage to take on a bigger project- PAPER BEAD CURTAINS!  This is where friends and extra helping hands come in handy.  I thought that an undertaking like this would be good if shared with others, plus it makes you finish your curtains faster.  Each strand is individually strung and you make enough strands to fill a door way or a window.  I made the strands 72 inches long, of course you can make it in whatever length.  I made the pattern simple with just the regular tube beads and the small round beads, you can make it all tube beads if you like.
