Jewelled paper beads may not be everyone’s cup of tea but bling lovers will adore them!
Because paper beads can get a bit samey if we don’t get slightly adventurous now and then.
And with the holiday season ahead of us, lets give the sparkley lights something to reflect off!
My Jewelled paper beads are pretty easy to make, if you watch my video.
And I show you two different ways to do it – both ways are easy – one is done before you roll the beads and the other is done after.
The result is lovely jewelled paper beads that sparkle in the light as you move.
And this is perfect for blinging up your sparkly holiday outfits this winter.
You can use your sparkley paper beads to make earrings, bracelets or even a one bead choker.
However, in my video, I just made earrings but you could easily make whatever you fancy from your paper beads.
If you like the look of these blinged up paper beads, do watch the video.
It is over on my YouTube channel – just click here to find it.
And as always, there is a free printable with this post.
It isn’t related to the jewelled paper beads because I used my own hand painted papers for those.
So, if you don’t feel like painting your own papers, you can print this design and use it instead.
You can use it for any crafts, not just paper bead making and you can print onto various types of paper.
I also use it printed onto very thin paper to add into my art collages.

And there is a bonus free printable!
After you have printed your free printable, you will need to cut it into uniform paper bead strips.
To make cutting the strips easier, I have designed a template you can print on the back of the free printable.
It can be really tedious measuring and then drawing out your paper bead triangles so you can see where to cut.
But don’t worry! I have designed a free printable template that makes all that a thing of the past.
It prints the paper bead strip cutting lines directly onto the back of your free printable.
All you need to do is print off your free printable, turn it over, put it back into the printer and print the cut lines – easy!
You can get your free cutting lines printable by clicking here.
