For each bead, draw a triangle on the paper—each triangle should be about 5.5 inches high and almost an inch wide. Cut out the triangle.
Make a thin line of glue down the middle. Place the toothpick at the large end of the triangle. Carefully roll the paper around the toothpick; once the bead is rolled, gently pull the toothpick out.
After the beads are dry, thread them onto a piece of elastic thread.
Adult supervision is recommended when children use scissors.
