Try looking around your home today and you'll be surprised to discover tons of papers you might have accumulated through the years.Let's do some clean up and a little organizing starting with the tiniest like receipts, envelopes to the bigger ones such as calendars and even cartoons and boxes. Each of these have a role to play in your attempt to live eco-friendly so don't throw them just yet.
With your tons of paper, I'm sure you'll find one or two gift wrappers.We all love receiving gifts, we would be extra thrilled if these come in lovely packages. Savor the gift...Save the wrap!!!. Transform these into beautiful beads. Make leisure- earth friendly jewelries and save yourself from spending a fortune or better yet,sell them for an added income.

If the paper is glossy, you may not need to seal it but I still recommend a thin coat of acrylic sealer or plain glue. Let dry before coating with lacquer or gloss. I use three to four coats in my beads for shine and durability.
These Medieval Print Beads are available in my Etsy Shop. Thank you.
