Shiny Paper Beads
Parental supervision is recommended
Make your own jewelry and other great stuff with these shiny paper beads. Kids will have fun cutting out colorful pictures from old magazines to create beads that can be used in almost any craft.
What you'll need:
How to make it:
- Find colored full page ads in the magazines
- Cut triangle strips about 1/2 an inch to 1 inch wide at the bottom
- Starting at the wide end, roll the strip tightly
- Glue the tip and hold down for about 30 seconds
A slight variation on how to make paper beads.
You find a picture you like in a magazine and using the scissors, cut one about 1" by 1" (2cmx2cm) square. Then you roll the square on the stick end of the paintbrush until there is only a little paper hanging down. Put glue on the paper that is hanging down, and roll it up, and then pull it off!
