Did you make paper beads from magazines and glue when you were a kid? Do you have a soft spot in your heart for these easy beads in polymer?
I dug out Dayle Doroshow’s versions from 2011 for you to examine too. Dayle used her scraps, flattening the rolls with stamps as a last step and then adding a contrasting color wash.
All that you need are tall triangles of flattened polymer. Wind each triangle up from wide to narrow around a rod.
Paper beads in polymer are easy and great for holiday projects, no matter how you roll.
