a quick tutorial : : book beads « the smallest forest I haven’t added any text instructions, because I think the photos are clear enough. All that’s left to do know is make a whole heap of these, in different shapes (but always symmetrical shapes!) and sizes, and stringing them up. This uses the same binding method used to make childrens board-books…the only difference is that you glue the front and back cover together, as well, and create a book in the round, without and ending or beginning…and that’s some pretty heavy symbolism for a pretty paper bead! Have fun!

6 Tips for Using Patterned Paper Backgrounds on your Scrapbook Pages | Get It Scrapped! by Debbie Hodge I love using patterned papers — especially for backgrounds.
