Paper Bead Safety Pin Bracelet
by Raychel Kennedy
Pick out some pretty paper and fold it in half like a hamburger.
Cut in 3/4 inch strips. Fold strip in half and cut at an angle to make a point. This will make 2 strips at a time.
Do this 25 times make a total of 50 strips.
Start rolling your paper adding Mod Podge to the end. Mod Podge will glue the bead together.
Repeat 24 more times.
I placed all my beads on a wire and painted with Mod Podge (didn't take picture). Once it was dry I took the wire to the garage and sealed the beads with Clear Acrylic.
Then I followed the steps I used in making the Safety Pin Bracelets but replaced my glass beads with my paper beads.
Imagine all the endless paper combinations you could make :)
Oh, wondering what my old way was? I would use a glue stick to close my beads then I painted it with clear nail polish.
