Paper to Paper Bead Idea #1

Posted on Oct 17, 2010 in Paper To Paper Bead Ideas | 14 comments

You would think that I have seen all that there is to see when in comes to paper beads.  I find myself constantly surprised to find how many different beads you can make out of paper!  How many kinds of paper are out there, thousands.  I would like to take on the challenge of giving life to ordinary paper.  Today, Paper to Paper Bead Idea # 1 is made out of gift wrapping paper.


I call these beads Sapphire Blue Beads because the color is very similar to the Swarovski tear drops that are sapphire blue.  You can make these into a bracelet or go for the bling and incorporate crystals.  I laid it down on a beading board, to see how it will look like.  To me, the beading board is great for planning your design, and measuring your necklace.


It is hard to tell they are paper beads, don’t you think?


The shiny gift wrapping paper in gold would be just perfect for the season, I just found some from my stash last year.


How many Paper to Paper Bead Idea do you think can I come up with? The first 15 readers to leave me a comment will be entered into a raffle drawing for a bead board that I am giving away to one lucky girl .
