Sandra Gallant-Crabtree: i purchased a bamboo roller from Janice Mae, which is great but it seems
fragile for all the money I spent on it, I intend on trying to make one
like yours at some point
Umi Love: I made a bead tool myself just a few days ago not knowing there would be a
tutorial about it. I guess not enough people are doing that but it's a
frugal and fun way to save your money. I always say what one is thinking ,
another one is doing. Happy Crafting!
Sarah Choi: Thanks! And what other stuff can I use instead of the bead thing to hold
the bottom together?
elkeartsandcrafts Elaine Jones: Try watching Jenniebellie's channel. She has great tutorials and shows how
to cut the paper.
Good luck with your beads. I like your tool.
Tessarae Collier: Hi, great video... I used the same thing to make mine homemade... wish I
would have seen this video before!! Thanks for sharing your idea! I wrapped
mine in paper tightly at the end instead of using a ball and made a very
nice handle. I sealed with diamond glaze. You can order that from walmart
online and they will ship to your local store or to your home! Thanks again
for sharing, this will help me!
Queen DaDiva: Thank you!
pcking2008: Thank you
lisa malterud: great idea!!
Celestine Crews: Wonderful idea! Good job!
Sheila Johnson: You go girl!!
daisy3690: wondferful video thank you so much for sharing
rosprncss m: Lol, I too fell asleep watching the video back, will try to do more
editing, and make it shorter next time. :)
Great to hear all the comments.
@Amber I used Miniwax Polycrylic Glaze, bought from Micheals. Used a
coupon so was around $6 I think. Did 3 coats of glaze, dipped and dried on
a wire rack, just remember to slide them after a bit so that the glaze
within the tube doesn't make it stick.
@Netty062 thats wonderful that you are able to do it for your class.
Love the ideas for hot glue at the ends, and using a bit of yarn to keep
the sides apart. Happy Beading :)
cecilia raines: Thanks so much for this video. My roller works great. Thanks again.
Kerry Faz: Love this. I'll have to try to make our own instead of buy it..
Elizabeth Vallely: Great idea!! Thanks for sharing!!!
dburgd99: Thank you! Mine is working great.
Ysela Yonak: I just started making paper beads and I luv it! I did purchase a paper bead
template I found on Amazon. the template has a variety of different shapes
you can make...very helpful tool! Have fun!
Mugambe Kibirango Hussein: Please! also you can use our way to make paper beads from Uganda
walenihula: Thanks for the idea. I made two today using toothpicks because I wanted a
smaller hole size. They work great.
markeilsha rodriguez: Thank you for that idea, I was looking for a new project and with the idea
that you provided I can start by making my own bamboo stick. Thanks again
and happy beading.
Gayle Delaney: Omg..just learning about these paper beads(this morning)and I'm obsessed.
ran across your video and thought that we had some skewers here and decided
to try to make this.. well it WORKED. I also found a pair of chopsticks and
I am going to glue them together leaving an inch and a half at the top for
larger beads. Also, I have those SAME round beads from JoAnns too. Thanks
so much, I will buy a set of 5 rollers I liked on Ebay but for now this
works great! You are a life saver. Thanks so much!
netty062: Wow! Great video. I work in a classroom and made 27 mini rollers for all
the students. I took skewers, smaller than yours and cut them into 3 and
just took a very sharp knife and cut 3/4" slits into the end with a sharp
knife. It worked very well but I understand about the tapering helping the
beads to slide off easily. I slid a piece of yarn into each slat to enable
them to pull the bead off so they wouldn't get slivers or unravel the bead.
It worked ok considering for 27 kids!
qwaneasia: nice i didnt watch it all i started to fall asleep no lie, but creative, be
nice if i could do it in multiple sizes
juicysuzie3: Well done but l fell asleep whilst watching zzzzzzzzzzzzz
Amber Jackson: What glazz\ sealant do you use
Renee Peer: Thank you for making this video, like you I have no patience too. Also I am
always looking for ways to do things cheaper and this looks great. Will
give it a try, was thinking about taking hot glue as the end bead to hold
the two together, so that I don't have to worry about finding a bead with a
hole large enough to hold the two together. Will let you know how that
works out. :)
musictoliveby08: Nicely done. Tfs @Amber she said polycrylic for the glaze.
Larry Allen: Thank you so much for the instructions. I'm just starting out too. I will
make one of these today. Kathy Allen
Nefertiti KMB: Thank You for that video!...Very Informative and Creative!...I'm sure that
your info. will go along way for me and my 3 Teen girls!...I have priced
bead rollers and for supplies for 4 People it's not cheap!...I love
creativity and the Paper Bead Craze!...Lol!...Thanks again and Happy
rolling 2 U and Yours!...Peace Love and "Light"!...
Annie Claxton: Such a clever idea, thank you! :o)
Michelle Shepherd-Wotton: you can rub the skewer with either a wax candle or crayon to let it slide
off easier. great ideal works really well.
