handmade paper bead necklace

i seem to ahve copious amounts of dsp this year thanks to an awesome special i achieved early on in the year so i thought i really need to find something to make with ti all. thanks to pinterest i found an easy tutorial to make these paper beads-very simple but quite tedious and messy but the end result was worth it!

 this was only 1 sheet of dsp cut into triangles about 4cm width. i rolled them around a toothpick and glued them wth crystal effects. when they were dry i varnished them with crystal effects.

i added some matching plastic beads to the necklace and even had enough left over to make a pair of earrings :>
