Hi Cleverly Inspired Friends!
My name is Desirée and I blog over at The 36th AVENUE.
The 36th AVENUE
Me and my sweet little Anni are so excited to be sharing this project with you today.
Thank you so much Tracie for having us!
With Spring break here we thought it would be a good idea to share a kid friendly craft.
Last year Anni came home and shared with me these paper beads that she learned
at school as part of the last week of school activities.
She did such a great job showing me the process that I asked her if it was OK for me to share with you her tutorial.


You’ll need…
Mod Podge Glue, Magazines, Straws, Brush and Scissors.
Cut colorful paper in a long triangle shape from any magazine you have.
Add glue to the inside of the paper and roll it around the straw

starting with the widest end to the point of the triangle.
After the triangle is rolled paint the outside of the bead with some more glue.
Make as many beads as you want just
make sure they don’t touch each other on the straw.

Let it dry and then cut them as wide as you would like them to be…

Anni made a little bracelet with her beads.
This is such a fun project to make with your kids, students or friends.
If you like it I hope you take a minute to drop a comment to Anni over at her original post.
She loves to read them!

Tracie thank you so much again for having us!
So fun to visit here!
