Step 1: Selecting your paper and materials to make the bead
- A colourful page from a used magazine or an old colourful poster. If you want to make beads of a full colour, you must find a full colour page of poster. For example to get ALL blue beads, pick up a page with photo of the ocean! Vogue and House and Home, or some old teenage music posters are my favorite. The thicker the paper the fatter the bead!
- Needle or toothpick
- Clear varnish - most clear varnishes from local store will do or nail varnish.
- Fishing wire/plastic wire or some sort of thread similar width as your needle or toothpick
