My Anni's Paper Beads and Bracelet ;)

Hi! My name is Anni and this last week of school
we are doing a lot of activities in my classroom.
One of my favorite ones has been making paper beads.
This is how I made my own beads at home...

You'll need...
Mod Podge Glue, Magazines, Straws, Brush and Scissors.

First, cut colorful paper
in a long triangle shape
from any magazine you have....

Second, add glue to the inside of the paper and roll it around the straw
 starting with the widest end to the point of the triangle....

After the triangle is rolled paint the outside of the bead with some more glue.
Make as many beads as you want just
 make sure they don't touch each other on the straw.

Let it dry and then cut them
as wide as you would like them to be...

I made a little bracelet with mine.

Here it is...

I hope you love it
and have fun making your own beads.


I {Desiree} think it was so cute
 of her to ask me to feature her on my blog.
She did the entire project by herself while I took the pictures...
You go girl!
These beads are ADORABLE and so is she!


Anni is going party at... ;)
