Paper Beads from The Cutting Cafe

My project today features the 
Paper Bead cut files from

I have to admit with my bum left hand/arm
I struggled a bit with it as my fingers just did not
want to cooperate.
I had surgery 2 years ago on both my left arm and hand
(they moved the nerve from the outside of my arm to the inside of my arm
and then carpal tunnel surgery on my hand.
(neither worked)
the result being I was left with half of my left hand numb
24/7 (tingles like it asleep)


Anyhow, with all that being said, don't judge me harshly
with my paper bead rolling...lol
This is a super easy thing to do (when your hand works...lol)
and there are lots of different beads to make.


I made a bracelet and box, rolled my beads, then strung them with
a few beads I had in my stash and a stretchy gold cord.



The box I made is part of the Paper bead file as well as the tag sentiment.

I LOVE this! The papers you used are perfect for it. A guy I worked with brought some of these paper beads to work once, that he and his wife had been working on. I'd never seen them before and was totally amazed. He had shellacked them and everything and they were so gorgeous! I can't imagine doing the paper rolling or many of the things you do with a bum hand. And you even made a box! Wow!
