Paper bead cores are the key to taking your paper beads to the next level.
Paper beads can look exceptionally pretty and leave many people astounded that they are made with paper.
But when you make them with a larger core hole, paint them with metallic paint and add metal paper bead cores to give them a professional look, it lifts them to a whole new level.
People who have seen my YouTube videos often get in touch and ask me where to buy certain supplies they have seen me using.
So I now try to find products similar to those I have used. Sometimes, I am able to recommend products I have actually bought from Amazon but unfortunately, that is not the case with the product suggestions that follow.
Most of the products I used in the video are from stock I have held for some time (such as the paper bead cores and silicone rings) and were originally bought in from abroad.
For those people who need help sourcing craft supplies the same as, or similar to, those I use in my videos, visit my Amazon craft supplies page.
If you scroll through the products I have listed, you will find most things you need to make the items seen in my craft tutorials.
There are some suggestions on my Amazon craft supplies page that I have not actually used and therefore I cannot recommend them from personal experience, they are just suggestions for you to research.
But in the case of the Imagination Crafts Starlight paints – I can highly recommend them because I use them all the time and love them.
I buy mine from Keep On Crafting in Bury St Edmunds Suffolk. The owner also ships worldwide, so check the website for details.
