She makes paper beads of course! Lately, I’ve been reading a lot of blogs about re-purposing things. One of my favorites is Blue Velvet Chair (will open in new window). I saw a posting on there recently about all of the different things you can do to recycle magazines and paper. There are some amazing items that people have created on the site.
I liked the idea of paper beads since they are small and didn’t require me to purchase any new tools. But, guess what. I did buy a new tool. I found an awesome little tool for rolling paper beads made by Paper Bead Girl. You can see her Etsy site here. She also sells an adhesive for making paper beads. I was given a sample with my roller. I like it, but so far, I like the beads sealed with Diamond Glaze better. It gives them a really nice coating. You might think they were made of wood or plastic.
I’ve made some of them into bracelets for myself.
