Hi lovely crafty friends, if you have been here before you know I love to use colours and I love to make embellishments and fun details to decorate my projects.
Today I want to show you paper beads and not some dodgy ones, nope, really pretty ones.
(All supplies are linked to different stores at the end of this post in the thumbnails. The different stores are also linked behind the product name. Among them are affiliate links that may be used at no cost to you.)
I have lots of tips in the video that will help you get the best result. So be sure to watch the video to see how this is done.
I used some really bright and colourful papers from Studio Light the Art By Marlene line. I have the collage blocks that have 20 sheets of lightweight paper with ten different patterns each and they are all gorgeous.
I like the fact that the paper is thinner but strong making them really perfect to make super pretty colourful beads. And I can highly recommend them.
I also used scrapbook paper to make the beads, which also is a great option. Marlene has some really colourful scrapbook papers too in her line, and they are just stunning with lots of colour and texture perfect to make amazing beads.
You can make the beads in different sizes, I have all the info put together in a guide, with measurements and the best hacks.
This was so much fun I have made quite a bunch and I am going to use them in another project, and no, it’s not going to be a bracelet or necklace:-)
Thanks for stopping by and make sure to keep on crafting!
