k I thought I'd share a great and easy craft we got our hands sticky over at our local Library and now we're all about making paper beads with just a little glue and recycled magazine pages and a plastic straw in a matter of about an hour you'll roll your way to having a totally rad necklace. We also learned that in Africa the women and children make these to sell and trade to support their families.
*Disclaimer* if you have a six year old boy his attention may wain and one beads on a straw and pretend shooting at your sisters is just as much fun.
Once there's enough beads made (about 20 large beads or 30 small)
take a heavy weight string or yarn and string the beads to make your necklace.
I think it makes a great Mother's /Grandma's day gift or even a birthday present don't you?!
