Bobby Pins - DIY Upcycled Paper

You can create these paper beaded bobby pins with a few inexpensive supplies and in a short period of time. You will need a discarded magazine or catalog for your paper source and some white glue. Have you ever made paper beads before? It is very easy to do. These beads are 2" long and slide over the bent side of a bobby pin. You can wear one, two or all three in your hair.

I have created a step-by-step photo tutorial on my blogger. To make your own paper beaded bobbies, see this link.

These two sets are listed in my Etsy store.

Fun idea - an embellishment you can wear in your hair or your card/ATC. Love it!!!
