Materials Needed

Colored paper








Step 1

Using a ruler, on one edge of a rectangular piece of paper, mark points that are 1.5 inches apart… starting from the edge.



Step 2

On the other end of the paper, mark a point 0.8 inch away from the edge of the paper. Draw a second point 1.5 inches from this point. Mark a few more points, each 1.5 inch away from the last point. After you are done, draw lines joining the points on both ends as shown below.


Step 3

Cut along the lines to get long triangles as shown below.


Step 4

Fold the edge near the wide end of the triangle and start rolling it as tight as possible.


Step 5

Apply some glue to the end of the triangle and roll to form a bead as shown below.


Step 6

Make many beads as shown below and thread them together into a bracelet using a needle and thread.


Step 7

Wear the pretty bracelet around your wrist and show it off to all your friends.
