Tonight I made my magazine beads. I cut magazine covers into triangular strips, then rolled each strip, thick side first, around a pen, until it formed a barrell-shaped bead. Next I coated the bead with Elmer's glue (so fun when you peel it, dried, off your hands). I made about 80 beads, or two paper plates full. They are just as colorful and textured as I'd hoped and will be great for my ribbon necklaces.
