All I needed was some of these two ordinary items, and a single piece of junk mail insert.
I cut the paper on the diagonal into skinny triangles, started the roll between the paperclip prongs, and rolled each one up with my fingers.
My yeild was 22 beads. As I came to the end of each triangle, i applied a tiny bit of glue, continued rolling, and allowed the overflow glue to spread over the whole bead. This added a firmer, shiny finish to each bead. Tonight I will take them home and see what they want to become.
Absolutely free crafting just so satisfies my frugal ways. LOL!
