Folding Paper Jewelry

Make paper necklaces, earrings, or a beaded curtain with paper jewelry patterns. Print and color the images then cut them out using sharp scissors. Make a hole with a hole punch to pass yarn or string through. For creating paper beaded jewelry, cut strips of paper along the solid lines of the pattern. Roll the strips up from large end to small to give the bead a tapered look. Apply paste or rubber cement to seal the ends of the roll.

Paper jewelry patterns children are a great way to recycle paper. Children will enjoy making custom decorated paper brooches, charms, rings, or hanging mobiles and window ornaments with these designs.
