I'm cruising through Pinterest, checking out paper beads, and I come across a site called allthingspaper.net by Ann Martin. Pretty self explanatory, huh?
My eye was first caught by the colors in this beautiful turquoisey pendant before I realized it was paper. Well, I had to see more!
The site has tutorials for a number of paper techniques, with an emphasis on quilling. The tutorials are very step-by-step, with some good Q & A sections. As the site points out, quilling seems as though it should be easy, since the materials are so simple. Ha! Who hasn't had that (erroneous) thought before?
These are just a few images from the site. Click on any of them to go there and be amazed! If you've had fun making your own paper beads, send us pictures, because we love show & tell!
