paper beads

This weekend I sat down at my table and just didn't feel like beading.  So I attempted to make paper beads.  I learned no pattern works just as well as having a template, and some of the best beads come from what you cut off the pattern.  Biggest thing I've yet to learn-how to make two that look alike.  Even with two identical pieces for paper to start I've yet to create a pair.  Oh well still turned out great for a first attempt.  So cut yourself an elongated triangle, grab your Mod Podge, a paintbrush and a toothpick (or wooden skewer for larger beads) and try it.  HINT:  "Glue" as you wrap it around the toothpick, but be careful not to adhere it to the toothpick.
