Egyptian Paper Beads

Cut long triangles out from magazine pages. The triangles should be long and thin, and the entire length of the magazine. Put glue stick one side, and then roll them up with a Bamboo Skewer, or a tooth pick. For thicker beads, you could wrap them around a pencil. Slide out the Bamboo, or pencil and the paper will hold it's shape. We used an embrodery needle and floss to poke a hole through the top of each bead to wear them long, but you could make thinner triangles, and thread the floss through the middle of each bead. Especially if you use a pencil, that would give the beads a thick center to thread yarn or string through easily.
