Cool Blog posts by others – Paper Beads

paper beads

I was trolling through the internet and saw these paper beads and how-to instructions at this blog. Doesn’t the idea make your mind spin, thinking of the possibilities? The instructions are simple and easy-to-follow. Be sure to read the suggestion-filled comments for more bead ideas and other uses of the paper mixture.

Some thoughts:

-use the tiny bits of leftover scrapbooking paper

-instead of tearing – use the crosscut shredder (tearing paper will be part of the fun for kids but if you are more interested in the creative part of the process those shredders are pretty fast…)

Check out the link – the author has several more pictures showing the different colors and effects she was able to get with the paint. I am going to be spending some time checking out the archives at http://www.astorybooklife.com
