Pasta Paper Bead Jewelry

Posted on Oct 8, 2009 in How-To's / Tutorials | Comments Off on Pasta Paper Bead Jewelry

This is a follow up on a previous article on how to make paper beads out of pasta.  It is fun, inexpensive and a lot of possibilities.  Paper now comes in all prints and texture, if you do not want to use magazine paper, scrapbook supply stores has a whole array of beautiful prints of paper to choose from.  This necklace I made out of origami paper in different hues of blue, this actually came in a pack of eight pages of 1/4 of 8 x 11 paper.  You can find this also at a craft store like Michael’s.
