Paper Beads From a Theme Park Map?

We recently visited a theme park and I kept the map.  (You can see how we folded it while at the park.)  Will the paper be able to stand up to the pitfalls of paper bead making?   We begin with the map.

I’m not sure how long it will take, but I’ll document this as I go.  Thank you for visiting as I look at the potential beads to be made from this used (pre-enjoyed) map.

Stay Tuned,

Embossing Powder for Paper Beads

I just watched a video sponsored by Ranger and Utee.  This presentation showed how to use embossing powder to seal paper beads.  I’ve heard of people doing this, but had never seen it done. (And it proves what I have said in the past. When it comes to arts….and crafts….there is more than one way to be creative.)

One thing of note for me: Using resistant ink on the dowel to assist when removing the bead.  This tid bit of information may come in handy in the future. 

If you want to view the presentation,  The link is here.

Have Fun,
