SuperDeut4: I truly cannot thank you enough! You've changed my life! (Ok. A little exaggerated, but practically changed it. Lol!)
Shannon Holmes: Thank you for sharing, I wanted to make larger beads and the bead roller that I have doesn't accommodate larger/wider pieces of paper, I will try this out before buying a new tool.
Diane Hughes: I'm new to this bead making also. Thank you for your help. I don't have a purchased tool either and was searching for one when I ran across several make your own videos. I love yours.
Silke Slocombe: what do you use to cut the paper on
Nathalie T.: What a wonderful and very creative idea! I'll have to give a try when I remember where I stored my skewers.. Thanks for sharing! :)
Donna Barcus: I like that you were able to think outside the box to create/make your own paper bead roller machine. Here is another idea so your can roll a bunch of paper strips at the same time. Use the same concept with cutting the skewers in half but keep the skewer the entire length and then instead of adding the big round ball at the end to secure it, either apply a dab of glue on the inside at the one end or use a piece of duct tape to secure the one end, then you can insert as many strips of paper onto the skewer that the skewer will hold and start rolling the skewer on your work surface/table top making sure the paper keeps lined-up and once you know the paper is lined-up straight apply a small dab of glue to each strip of paper and then finish rolling your paper bead and then apply a final dab of glue at the end of the strip. Now you have a bunch of beads made at the same time, instead of making one bead.
John Stevenson: Speech is muddled and unclear, volume does not change it.
Rosanna Ramos (The Queen Bead): I use an pen ink tube inside an old eyeliner tube, I just hold the bead tight while I roll. This is a cool method, only I'm afraid of cutting myself, but it looks great!
