THESE BEADS ARE MADE FROM JUNK MAIL!
Step 1: The Supply List
paper cutter. can be scissors. i have a rotary cutter that i use for paper only
clear coat. brush on or spray
Step 2: Cut It Out
use this cheat sheet i provide to cut out bead parts. (some are more than one part)

Step 3: Trim and Wrap
by trim, i mean trim the bead in black (or whatever color you like)
Step 4: Use Clear Coat
