You can use my designs to make bag charms, necklaces, card toppers, scrap book embellishments and cute little fridge magnets or to give people you love/like.

To create a simple fridge magnet…

…just follow the YouTube tutorial but instead of puting the glassed design into a pendant tray, just attached a piece of self adhesive magnetic strip to the back and voila! A fridge magnet to slip in someone’s pocket as a surprise on Valentine’s Day!

And if you are making pendants, don’t worry if you don’t have pendant trays or glass cabochons…

I made a video a while back showing how to make a DIY pendant bezel and glaze it if you don’t have and glass cabochons.

My next post will be about how to use the design and I will be showing you exactly how I made the beads in the picture.

And if anyone is interested in making pillow paper beads, you will love my latest discovery!

It’s been more decades than I want to admit since I discovered the joy of paper beading and in all that time, I have managed to never make pillow beads.

So I was really excited when I discovered a crafter with a channel called Wokos Crafts on YouTube

Woko has some beautiful videos on paper beading, especially the one showing how to make pillow beads.

free Christmas printables
My first attempt at making pillow beads – I’m sure I’ll get better with practice! Watch Woko’s tutorial if you want to learn.

If you want to learn how to make pillow beads, click the link above for Wokos Crafts and you will see how it is done.

It is a very simple technique and you don’t need a bead tool. Woko is very softly spoken and relaxing to watch.

And if you want to use the same colors that I used, you can download and print my designs onto glossy paper, by clicking the links under the pictures.

And in case you are wondering, there are stringing holes in pillow beads beads but they are in the corners.

If you liked my free Christmas printables, keep coming back because there will be many more free printables in the coming months.

And if there is anything in particular that you would like, maybe a certain colour scheme or pattern, let me know.

A typical paper bead design – suggestions for colors are welcome.

I do have an etsy shop where I sell paper bead templates but as life is way more than just about money, I love being able to give away some designs on this website too.

I also sell paper bead making tools in my shop for making small hole beads (3mm) and large hole European style beads (5mm).

But coming up very soon, I am going to show you how I make beautiful European Style paper beads without using my bead tools.

I will be demonstrating how I get the core holes to the perfect size for the bead cores to fit.

I will be showing you how to make these beads using my template very soon.

Faux willow pattern china beads made from another one of my free printable designs available on this website.

As you may know, I have been making some of my free printable designs available to my YouTube viewers.

Most people worldwide are confined to home at the moment and many may not be finding it easy to get hold of craft supplies.

So that is why I have been trying to think of tutorials using stuff from around the house, such as kitchen towel, like I used in this tutorial to make the bracelet below.

The bracelet I made using kitchen towel

This week I have been working on some new free printable designs but then I thought of one I designed a few years back.

I will be making the new one available as time goes on but for my YouTube tutorial this week, I have made this pretty faux willow pattern china bead bracelet.

This is the design I use in my face to face workshops with people who are new to making paper beads.

Faux china beads with a willow pattern look.

As with my other free printable designs, my YouTube viewers can download the template for this and follow the tutorial to make this bracelet.

My finished bracelet

All you have to do to get access to the download is watch the video here on YouTube and listen for the password. It is different to last weeks password because it is on a different page. Once you have the password, click here to go to the download page for that design and use the password. Simple!

What if you don’t have all the other things I used to make my bracelet?

As long as you have a printer, a paper shredder (or scissors and a ruler) a bamboo skewer or toothpick and a glue stick, you can make these beads.

If you don’t have the tiny silver beads, craft eyelets or elastic, you can roll lots of beads and then make your bracelets when the craft stores are open again.

I’m not sure if US viewers are able to order on Amazon at the moment but here in the UK we are.

So I will be stocking my Amazon shops for the other things you need in case you are able to order right now.

My Amazon shops are here:

And what if you don’t have a bead rolling tool?

Ideally, you will have a bead rolling tool such as the 3mm one you see above.

However, if you don’t have a tool – don’t panic!

In a couple of my previous tutorials, I have given you ideas on how to make paper beads without a tool.

Click the links below to see my other ideas for making paper beads without a bead tool.

This week in my YouTube tutorial, I bring you a third idea and show you how to make a simple homemade paper bead rolling tool that is good enough.

The homemade bead tool is a return to the 70s for me when I was making paper beads this way using cocktail sticks (toothpicks).

This method is fine for making paper beads when you can’t get a proper paper bead tool.

I developed the paper bead rolling tool that I sell online for people who are making lots of beads all the time and need something that is quick and easy to use.

But if you aren’t rolling hundreds of beads, my homemade version will be fine for you.

Have fun everyone and I hope you are enjoying my free printable downloads as much as I enjoy creating them – see you next time with my next tutorial and maybe some more free printable designs!
