Double Strand Newspaper Bead Necklace

Paper Craft Jewelry This necklace is my favorite paper bead creation so far.  I love the round, shorter paper beads.  There is a wonderful video that helped me to figure out how to get this shape, as opposed to the longer oval beads.  The trick is to cut a really long, super skinny based triangle. Paper Bead Necklace For this piece, I planned the design, then made just the beads I needed, instead of my normal make a bunch of beads for days and days, then come up with projects.  The latter method always left me with tons of leftover bead soup.  I realized I was spending lots of time making paper beads for which I had no project in mind.  Not very efficient. How to Make Paper Beads I made the beads gradually smaller from front to back by decreasing the length of the triangle strip.  Here is the instructional video I mentioned above from  This site is amazing.  The majority of what I have learned about paper beads has come from there. This is going to make one person on my gift list very happy.  Get rolling... you still have time!
