Want to make the gorgeous European Style paper beads you see inset in the listing pic above?

You can with this new improved two part template with a 7mm base strip! Simply print the European Style paper bead templates onto plain paper, use a metal ruler, craft knife and cutting mat, or scissors, to cut along the black lines to get your strips and then glue the two parts of each strip together making sure they line up and then carefully roll to create the European Style bead shape you see in the picture above.

These strips are spaced far enough apart and colored in light grey to help you see which part is bead strip and which part is waste.

You can also use the 'waste' strips to make beads so don't throw them away!

After rolling the beads, you can paint them with metallic, shimmery paint, glaze them and insert 5mm metal bead cores, and voila! You have European Style paper beads that no one will guess are paper!

The beads in the picture were made using 120 gsm paper (32lb in US weight I believe) - if you use thicker or thinner paper, this will affect the size and shape of the bead to some extent. So if you want the exact shape you see here, you must use the same weight paper.

Forget measuring and drawing lines. My downloadable templates make the paper bead strip cutting process so much easier and they are very versatile to use.

On the template thumb nail listing image I have included a small picture of what the European Style paper beads made with this two part template looks like with all the different sizes and lengths. These sample beads were made using 120 gsm paper (32lb). Of course you can vary the size and shape further by using thick or thinner paper or by extending the strips in your image editing software to make them longer.

Please note - to use these JPEG templates, you will need image editing software such as Photoshop or have a PC that is capable of opening JPEG files and sending them to a printer. I take no responsibility for your lack of knowledge if you order this template without having the right software or ability to use it.

And please note that when joining the strips, you must take care to make sure you stick the top and bottom strips with the narrowest part of the part one strip attaching to the widest part of the part two strip.

The taper on the bottom strip is so slight that you will need to make sure you have each one the right way round by comparing the ends before sticking.

This is an electronic download - there is no physical product involved. You must download the templates electronically.

The templates are for your own personal use and must not be resold, repackaged or supplied to any other person in any way.

If you have any questions please convo me. And if you want to check out how you use the templates before you buy them have a look at this video:

The templates are JPEG files and come in two sizes:
A4 (8.3 x 11.7 inches)
US Letter (8.5 x 11 inches)

You will get both UK and US sizes when you buy the template.

Perfect! I love this template! I have already rolled some perfectly shaped beads and I’m now in the glazing process. I also used the “scrap” pieces to create some larger shaped beads that I love! Thank you!
