Thanks so much Gina. I am so happy to watch this video and learn a new craft. So I went on a shopping spree. I bought these fantastic bead making tools from Wymans Workroom ( E-BAY) since the lady you do business with is out of stock. This guy custom makes them in your choice of stains or paint for the handle and your choice of two shaft lengths for $2.65 each and $3.65 for the longer lengths so I bought all 8 that he sells. Well worth the few bucks it cost and now I have all sizes for custom made!!! Need to get UTEE which I think would give a harder shell than the Mod Podge? Can anyone comment on this since I have never used this product (utee) but I have loads of Mod Podge.

For anyone interested, Paper Bead Boutique now has the wrapping tool back in stock.

Thank you for sharing the bracelet idea. Any color, any design. What a nice way to do color coordination as well. To complete your look.

Do you have to remove your bracelet before you wash your hands? I wondered about getting the beads wet, since the paper inside is not protected.

Thank you, thank you for sharing this. I need to make a bunch for gifts. I always wanted to learn this and I have a lot of UTEE that I need to use. I have a tool like that too. Thank You so much, Gina, you have been inspiring me for many years now. I really really love that leaf stitched kit.  I've used mine so many times I used up the tissue paper as well. yes, the brown tissue paper I did use on my cards that I made a gift box of cards for a sweet lady that has been my advocate for a few months now. She loved them all and couldn't believe I used tissue paper to emboss and glue all over the one card yup I forgot to take pictures of the cards and post to Instagram but I'll make more if I ever find brown tissue paper again..LOL. thanks so much.

Love these. I have tried them in the past but I was taught to use the modge podge and I didn’t like it. I have the ultra thick enamel and this looks so much easier. Going to make them for my nieces for Christmas. Thanks Gina, you have given me my Christmas card idea and a gift idea all in two day. You’re the best!

Hi Gina, thanks for sharing this great idea for paper beads.  I never knew how easy it could be, and believe me, I do have scraps of paper.  Your videos were one of the very first ones I watched for card making and you said not to throw away your scraps of paper.  Well, I listened.  LOL

I do have one question however; what size paper rolling tool do you use?

Again, thanks so much!

Absolutely lovely,  How hard are the beads once you get done coating them with the embossing powder?  And to they look like an actual bead that you can buy in a store?
