Puttering with Paper


I don't know why, but I've been on a paper bead making kick for the last week. I had this idea to make a bead roller and it ended up working pretty good. So..... a whole lotta beads later and I'm still making beads. I also made a bunch of the bead rollers. I'm hoping to do a bead making class in the near future and thought these would work well for the students. But, first I'd like to know if they are something that would work for anyone.
So, here's the deal. Leave a comment and your name could be drawn to receive one of my bead rollers, some cut paper to roll up some beads, instructions for rolling and a few examples made by me. I will leave the drawing open until next Thursday and then post the results on the Fiber Arts Friday site. I will do the drawing the old fashioned way by writing names on slips of paper and putting them in a bowl and drawing a name. That's cuz I have no idea how to do it with the computer-I barely know how to keep up with this blog!
Thanks for joining in and good luck!!

  5. I have a paper beaded necklace that a friend gave me. It's so beautiful. How cool it would be to be able to make one myself. :-)

  9. Those beads are sassy! You really need to plan a visit to Michigan. There are a few of us who would adore having fiber and creative playtime with you.

    Well, if I don't win one of those bead makers, I'd sure like to purchase one. My brain is already thinking up pretties to make.
