Trouble-free Tubes

Posted on Aug 11, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 4 comments

These paper bead tubes are super easy, layered up is the best way to wear them.  You can string several on elastic or beading wire.  When you string them on elastic you can just slip them over your head or wind several times on your wrist as a bracelet.


Easy, breezy !


You can mix them with glass beads and firepolished crystals.


Somedays…wear them all as a bracelet, I’m sure they work well as head bands too.


If you do not want them on elastics, you can string them on a beading wire with magnetic closure.  Wear several for a dramatic effect, kind of like Zulu Princess style 🙂


Simple is beautiful after all!




  1. How do you get the bead off the roller? I have tried making beads and can’t get the roller out. Can you roll the beads directly onto the elastic? I work with DD adults and would like to try this with them.

  2. This is really cool. I just recently thought of layering my different necklaces.

  3. hello !! i’m always very much interested in your posts, and i would like to know if you already did a tutorial for “flying saucers” paper beads (like the ones you sent us in the paper bead exchange) because i can’t find how to make them…

    • Hi Claire,

      No I have not made a tutorial on the saucer shaped beads yet some calls it UFO 🙂 I have it on my future posts though, I will email you when it comes out. Thank you for your visits. Janice Mae
