Tutorial On Bamboo Roller

Posted on Oct 3, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 1 comment

The craft of making paper beads has been around for a long time, dating way back in the Victorian era when ladies would sit in the drawing room making paper beads out of discarded wall paper.  I love the fact that anyone can do it with materials that you already have at home.  I’m sure many of you has made some using tooth pick, skewers, nails, needles, knitting needles etc.  The paper bead roller tool that you can find everywhere just makes the job easier.  The bamboo roller that we have after a few tweaking is one of my favorite tool.  I love the fact that it is made of bamboo and that it feels good on the hand.  Here’s Kayla showing you how to use it:

You can make any bead color you want and mix it with other beads.  We have made this bracelet in jade color, and all you really need is paper, glue and glaze!


It is a very engaging craft, it is not only relaxing but also meditative!  Definitely jewelry making on a shoe string.


Believe it or not I hardly wear anything else but paper beads jewelry.


You can take it up a notch and mix it with crystals and gem stones.
