How to make a paper bead necklace?

This paper bead necklace is super easy and fun to make. Here is what you need:
Decopatch paper, Decopatch glue (or other varnish glue like ModPodge),
cotton paper beads, ribbon, wooden sticks, needle, glue pencil.
Tear pieces of Decopatch paper.
Tear them even smaller as we'll be working on
small paper beads so there will be less creases.

Take a wooden stick and stick it through the paper bead.
You can purchase the cotton paper balls in your local craftshop.
Put some glue in the lid of the jar.
Put some glue on the bead.
Dip your glue pencil in the glue and then pick up a tiny piece of paper with it. Stick it onto the bead and put some more glue over the piece of paper.
Then repeat until the bead is completely covered.
Let 'em dry.
I you like 'em shiny, then add another layer of varnish glue.
When they are dry, remove the beads from the sticks.
String the beads onto the ribbon.
And you're ready to go out!
I'll be giving this necklace away among all the blogcomments. So if you like to win this, please do leave a comment. Make sure that I know where I can find you when you win! :) The winner will be announced nex week! :)
