Major boredom, the kind you get Sunday night when thoughts of the week start setting in and you’re trying to make the weekend last but not sure how, set in a few hours ago when Ev left for San Diego and I was left to my own defenses. I needed something mind numbing so I made a pile of paper beads from magazines and fancy paper. They are super easy. First batch I made on a pencil. The second batch, which I prefer, I made over a skewer.
Just roll a long skinny triangular piece of paper over a skewer. Start with the wide side. Put a little dab of glue on the tip and count to ten. Slide it off the skewer and that should do it. After I made about 50 I wasn’t sure what to do with them all. I don’t have any nice string and a yarn necklace just wasn’t cutting it. After a little art studio search I found some pipe-cleaners that did the trick just fine. I was able to make sever bangles. I can’t wait to wear them to school tomorrow. They look really fun all stacked up.
