Step 1: Materials
Pretty simple: you just need the straws themselves, scissors to cut the straws, and also a long thin tool (a pen works fine)
Step 2: Cut the Straws
you can cut them to many different lengths, but I chose to cut them into one inch segments
Step 3: Fold in the Edges
this is when you may need to use a pen to assist you
Fold in part of each edge to create a triangle shape
Step 4: Alternate Ideas
you could strategically place the triangles to create a diamond, a trapezoid, or a three dimensional shape
Step 5: Use Your Beads!
