Paper Bead Series - Half Inch Fat Beads by xneeneex Paper Bead Series - Half Inch Fat Beads by xneeneex
I decided to make a paper bead series but I will only show different size and shape paper beads and not how to get started. In this tutorial I show how to start but if it's not detailed enough for you, you can go search for better instructions online.

Here I show a technique to make a paper bead more round by using more than one strip.

Hi, I don't think I understand, how do you add another strip as you're making it? xP

Just glue the end to it at the base where you start to roll it. That is all

I used to have a bead maker set thing when I was little and I loved it. The process was the same of course, but they suggested you use a glue stick the whole time as you're rolling them up. I used to always overdo it on glue XD

Do you have any tips for sliding them off the stick easily?
Reply
:iconxneeneex:
xneeneex Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2012
You can loosen them up by rotating it a little the opposite way you rolled them. Also if you glue them as you go that would make it more difficult to take off because it can't loosen up.
