For a refresher on how to make the beads, check out last Monday's
Paper Bead Masterclass . Remember - there are two ways to make the beads. You can either print-and-cut the entire bead or you can print the topper and glue it onto the tip of a triangular bead form cut out of plain coloured paper.
Here's a tip: a flat brush is recommended for coating the beads. Use the sealant (Paper Mod Podge Matte) very sparingly.
Here are your paper bead printables:
|Beads & toppers.|
|Beads group A.|
|Beads group B.|
|Beads group C.|
When you are stringing the beads, aim to balance pattern, shape and colour - get a good mix. For a necklace, you need about 12-15 beads. For a bracelet, about 7-9 beads will do.
All these Japanese-style prints have put me in a washi tape mood.
Washi tape beads are on the agenda...
