Here's another crafty task that can be done in bed. This time the idea is inspired by jessprkle and all the pictures of her beautiful paper beads. I wanted to try and make these since I saw them for the first time. I also found a tutorial but never got around to try it out until now.
It's a bit fiddly but quite easily done, although not exactly hand-friendly. I ripped up an old Intro magazine and started with beads that are 3 cm long (the yellow and the mainly black and white ones in the picture).
The beads of my second batch (the green ones) are 1 cm longer and were a bit easier to roll up. Then my hands said that's enough for today but this is definately something I'd try again.
I like how this technique produces beads of certain colour schemes while no two beads look exactly the same.
