- Measure a magazine
page to cut strips in various widths (1/4, 1/2, and
- Cut strips from magazine
- Analyze the paper for
pictures that would make great patterns. Starting with
the opposite end of the picture, put a dab of glue on
the outside (side to be rolled over).
- Roll the strip around
the toothpick. The glue will hold the center together
and the toothpick will allow room to string the beads
- At the last 1/4 inch
of the roll, put a dab of glue on the underside of the
paper. This will keep the roll from coming apart.
- Remove toothpick and
allow to dry.
- Repeat with other strips.
- String the beads, alternating
between round craft beads and long magazine beads, onto
a piece of string, thread, or fishing line.
- Tie a knot to close,
wear, and enjoy!
