Hey friends I am back and this time with a technique to convert your paper into jewelry. It is a good way of saving paper; in fact it’s a way of recycling paper.
Things that we need are:
- 1. Waste paper
- 2. Ruler
- 3. Pencil
- 4. Scissor/cutter
- 5. Glue
- 6. Toothpick
- 7. Varnish (optional)
Now we will see how to make it:
Take a waste paper and cut out triangle shapes as shown in the picture. It should be around 2 cm. at the base.
Base and length can be varied according to the shape that you want your bead in.
Now these triangles have to be rolled around the toothpick starting from the base. The paper should be rolled tightly.
Apply glue on the tip of the paper i.e. on the last 3 inches of the paper.
Now the bead should be ready. Take out the bead slowly; it should not lose its shape.
Now you can apply varnish or glue all over the bead so that it lasts long, and also it will give a shiny look to the bead. Let it dry for some time and your bead is ready to use.
Lets see how it looks like:
Now how to make things from it:
We can make different things from these paper beads like bracelet, necklace even key-chains with the help of wires or strong threads that you have.
I made these for myself and even wore it to the office. People couldn’t make out they are PAPER beads.
So go ahead n make these beautiful paper beads and some creative things out of it……
Tip: If varnish is not applied it may not be waterproof.
