Rolled Scrapbook Paper Beads

By:

Put away your die cuts and embellishments - it's time to change the way you look at paper. Create pretty jewelry using this technique for making Rolled Scrapbook Paper Beads from Tiffany Windsor. This is a simple and inexpensive way to create pretty baubles.

Materials:

  • Aleene’s Max Tacky Adhesive
  • Scrapbook paper (I used 8-1/2″ x 11″ paper for this project but you can also use 12″ x 12″)
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Paper cutter
  • Wooden skewers
  • Open box (or other item to hang beads to dry)

Instructions:

  1. Mark paper with pencil in 1/2″ increments at both top and bottom of paper.
     
  2. Using marks as guide, insert paper into paper cutter and cut strips that measure 1″ wide at bottom and come to point at other end.
     
  3. Place cut strips, one at a time, face down on work surface.
     
  4. Starting approximately 2″ up from wide end, apply a line of Aleene’s Max Tacky Glue along center of strip all the way to the pointed end.
     
  5. Place skewer across wide end and begin rolling paper around skewer. You want the paper to be smooth and taut but not so tight that it becomes glued to the skewer. Continue rolling until you reach pointed end.
     
  6. If needed, apply a small dab of Max Tacky to pointed end to glue down securely.
     
  7. Keeping bead on skewer, apply a large dab of Aleene’s Max Tacky over outside of bead and roll bead over finger to smooth the glue. This will now act as the sealer on the bead. (It will dry to a pretty, clear soft sheen finish.)
     
  8. Immediately transfer bead to a clean skewer. Repeat to create desired number of paper beads. Let beads dry completely.
     
  9. String as desired to create necklace, earrings or bracelet.
