Paper Beads Charm Bracelet

 

Hello! Martha here and today I have a cute kids craft to share with you. Kids love to make jewelry so when I spotted the Paper Bead Set and Paper Bead Pattern Set 1 in the Silhouette Design Store, I thought I would give this craft a try. I am very impressed with how the beads and charms turned out. I also like that the Silhouette Online Store has so many different charm sets to choose from, allowing for a personalize touch that reflects the child’s interests. I used Ballet Charms but another fun theme would be to create a pirate necklace for a boy.

 

Paper beads are simple to make with your Silhouette.

  • Cut lots of paper beads out of a medium weight card stock.

  • Roll the paper onto a wooden skewer and Mod Podge the exterior of the bead.

TIP: When rolling the bead onto the wooden skewer, only apply Mod Podge to the tip of the paper. Otherwise it will stick to the skewer and make a mess of the bead. Once the bead is rolled, slip it off of the skewer and apply a liberal amount of Mod Podge to the exterior of the bead.

 

To make the charm:

  • Cut the charm out of chipboard.
  • Create a mirror image of the charm and cut both the original and mirrored charm on double-sided adhesive.
  • Place the double-sided adhesive on both sides of the chipboard charm.
  • Cover with glitter.
  • If you want, apply a coat of Mod Podge to give the charm added durability.

 

Now your necklace is ready for assembly!

  1. Great idea Martha…I’d love to use up a bunch of my larger scraps this way.
