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!

Hi, my name is Martha Clyde. I am a stay-at-home Mom of a 4 year old daughter and a 2 year old son. My children bring so much delight to my life and I thoroughly enjoy every minute (well almost every minute!) raising them. On a part time basis, I am employed as a Sergeant in the Canadian Forces Reserves. With 14 years of service, I am very proud to serve my country as a military musician. From a young age, I have fond memories of learning to sew, craft, and cross-stitch in 4-H and perfecting these skills with my talented and crafty Mother. Later in life, I found myself refinishing furniture, planning parties and events, sewing for my children and making crafts with my kids. I always have a project on the go, just ask my husband! This is where the Silhouette Cameo became the perfect fit for so many of my projects.
