Red Paper Beads

I've been busy making paper beads all weekend, and decided to make some little red ones to link with Little Andalucia's Creative Friday Features (this week's theme is red.)  The paper is from an old magazine called Yankee, and the page was a red-patterned quilt.  I was using nail polish to make them shine a bit, but dipping them in polyurethane is a little easier.    




Come see the other pretty red items featured in this week’s Creative Friday Features.

Thank you so much for participating in the link party, Deb!

I like these paper beads. They are different, they don't break like glass beads can, and I love the fact that they are created by recycling a magazine.

I remember making paper beads when I was a kid! Not as pretty as yours, I'm sure! I love your eyeglass chain in your shop -- hard to believe it's paper!

Nice beads! I used to read Yankee magazine. Have never tried polyurethane for mine when done, will have to look into that next time I make some beads.
