Rolled Paper Beads Tutorial by Pattie

Happy Friday!

As many, if not all, of you know, we recently added a new DT member to the DeNami team- Pattie Goldman! This gal is so talented and as you'll see in the Photo Tutorial below, she has so many great ideas!  Today we get to learn how to create rolled paper beads that can be used on cards and jewelry alike.

Ready to get started? Let's go!

DeNami Design Products
Other Products
Silver gems
Acryic Stamp Block/Ink
Scissors/Paper Cutting Tool
Glue pen or adhesive
Narrow tool/skewer (for rolling)
Stamp any pattern you choose on paper with contrasting ink.

Step 2
Mark paper at 1/2" mark on bottom of paper and draw line from top corner of paper to that 1/2" mark.
Then, mark top of paper at 1" mark and draw line from that 1" mark to bottom 1/2" mark to create a long triangle. 
Continue marking top and bottom at 1" intervals and drawing lines to connect them creating more triangles.
Step 3
Cut triangles using paper cutter or scissors.

Step 4
Place paper with your stamped side down and roll edge tightly over your narrow tool of choice. I used a paper-piercer here, but you can use a file as shown in the supplies photo, a skewer or any narrow tool.

Step 5
Continue to roll the paper tightly and secure the end with glue or adhesive.

Step 6
Finished beads are ready to use or can also be coated with Mod Podge or Glossy Accents.

I applied a bit of glue to the ends, inserted twine into the hole and topped each one with a silver bead accent.

If you decide to give this tutorial a try, I would LOVE to see it! Feel free to post your picture on the DeNami Facebook page, the DeNami Flickr group or upload it to a Splitcoast Stampers gallery. 

We hope to see you some of you at the Heirloom Productions Novi, Michigan show this weekend! We have replaced some boards (ie: there are NEW samples), added all of the new release to the booth and we will be having a Make 'N Take at this show as well!
