Everything old is new again when it comes to this project.
These beautiful beads are actually created by rolling paper.
Various papers get a whole new look when rolled tightly, glued and coated with
matte Mod Podge, and shined up with a layer clear crystal accents.
You will never look at paper the same after you see the new shiny appearance of various types of papers such as road maps, scrapbook paper, phone book pages, magazine pages, or poster board. The large yellow beads were created with yellow poster board. Even though my fingers were tired from trying to keep the thicker paper rolled tight, the outcome was a beautiful chunky bead. The larger neutral colored beads were rolled using a 10 foot strip of magazine paper.
In other words, the sky is the limit when it comes to this paper bead goodness.
