Hat Trick Tips - Paper Beads!

Fun, easy, and inexpensive paper beads make a great summertime project to fill the "I'm bored!" time! Great for parents and kids. Your imagination is your only limit with this project!


  1. I wanted to ask about the use of starch. I am starting to make paper beads and your video is the first one that I have seen that mentions the use of starch. Can you tell me a little more about how this helps?

  2. The starch is a stiffener that helps the paper stick and keep it's shape as you roll the bead. It is water soluble so you will want to coat it with something when they are dry. I hope this helps!


Thank you for taking a moment to leave your thoughts on this post!
