Major boredom, the kind you get Sunday night when thoughts of the week start setting in and you’re trying to make the weekend last but not sure how, set in a few hours ago when Ev left for San Diego and I was left to my own defenses.  I needed something mind numbing so I made a pile of paper beads from magazines and fancy paper.  They are super easy.  First batch I made on a pencil.  The second batch, which I prefer, I made over a skewer.

Just roll a long skinny triangular piece of paper over a skewer.  Start with the wide side.  Put a little dab of glue on the tip and count to ten.  Slide it off the skewer and that should do it.  After I made about 50 I wasn’t sure what to do with them all.  I don’t have any nice string and a yarn necklace just wasn’t cutting it.  After a little art studio search I found some pipe-cleaners that did the trick just fine.  I was able to make sever bangles.  I can’t wait to wear them to school tomorrow.  They look really fun all stacked up.
