Illustrated Craft Tutorial - How to Create a Paper Beads Bracelet

This project is recommended for children ages 9 and older



Paper Beads Bracelet 2

1. To make paper beads you need paper, scissors, glue, a pencil, a toothpick and your template. Print out the paper bead template to the size indicated (10.5 cm long x 3 cm wide). Create a permanent template for easier tracing. Use the template and trace triangles on the backside of your paper. For the bracelet you will need 5 or 6 beads depending on the size of your wrist.

7. Connect the beads with either wire or perlon thread. Brush on a thin layer of glue to give the beads a little shine. You can choose to add a crystal bead between each paper bead if you like.
