How to make Paper Beads

I really enjoyed making these paper beads. They're so easy!

You will need:
Exciting multicoloured paper, a magazine page works well.
A pencil.
Some glue, PVA is best.
Some ribbon or string to thread on to.

1. Cut out long thin triangles from your paper, the length of the base of the triangle is how wide your bead will be.

2. Roll the triangle, base first, not too tightly around your pencil like in the picture below and stop half way.

3. Spread glue on to the triangle and continue to roll to the tip.

4. Smear the glue all over the bead to seal the bead, remove it from the pencil and there's your first bead!

Make lots of beads and thread them on to your ribbon. Tie the ends and you have a necklace!
