For Christmas I got this nifty little gadget to make your own paper beads.
Today I took it out for the first time. Basically you cut your paper, slide the end of the paper between two metal prongs, and turn the crank to wind to paper into a bead.
This is some paper that came with the gadget. It has lines to cut on. I need to buy a ruler to help me cut my own paper out.
Here is my first bead. It is going to take some practice to get good at it. It felt good to be crafty again.
