Yes.. my mom ordered me a beautiful bracelet from Mzuribeads for Christmas for me two years ago, and I still wear it so I suggest it for everyone who loves colorful and beautiful jewelry!
can I print instructions without using all my ink for the big pictures? I need written instructions for the paper bead necklace from magazines to give to a 88 year old lady who is looking for it.
... type them out on note pad and print them in B & W?
For even more ideas for paper beads, try 'Creative Beads from Paper and Fabric" by Ann Krier
and I think it is supposed to be waterproof.
I have been told to use Future floor polish instead of fingernail polish. It is not supposed to turn yellow or brittle. I have not tried it because I can't find it in my town but plan to soon. It is also good to coat regular beads that need a little shine.
Does anyone know if the <strong>paper glaze</strong> (mentioned in the video) will make it so that they'll be fine even if it rains?<br/>Or if you make these and use a different kind of glaze-type-thing to protect them, what do you use, and how well do they tend to hold up?<br/><br/>Thank you! :)<br/>
I couldn't find any paper glaze... I tried nail polish (or rather nail strengthener) and it gave them that glazed look and made them harder like real beads :) Also, it made them waterproof, so rain or sweat isn't going to destroy them. I think it worked very well. (I used a magazine, I don't know if it works with newspapers) But I think it's a useful alternative
aww i remember making these necklaces when i was a kid <sup></sup> <br/>
I remember doing these in summer camp, but with really decorative origami paper. Ah, memories. :)
I'm making earrings to match!
that's a pretty cool idea<br/>maybe i'll try this out sometime =)<br/>
