Recycle paper and make some beads :D
(this is my first project I submit on cutoutandkeep)

This is an easy and cheap project.
It's recycling with paper.
With these paper beads you can make necklaces or bracelets.

(don't be mad about my (maybe) bad English)

    You have to make some preparations. You'll need a Stanley knife, a ruler, a page of an old magazine (with color :D) and a cutting mat (don't know how it's called in English, in dutch it is a "snijmat").

    You have to cut out a stroke in triangle shape (I've cut out a stroke from 2 cm wide at the begin).

    On the end of the stroke you have to do some glue, then roll it up to the end.
    Wait a few minutes, after a minute of 2 the bead is finished.

    Now you can leave them 'blanc' or paint them with nailpolish (then they have a nice gloss)..
