Where Creativity is Just Plain Fun

Membership is Free!

I have decided to end the Paid Memberships Program and just go with the Points Program. If you are a paid member, you signed up for a lifetime membership and are no longer paying for memberships. I am not really making any money from new memberships so it does not make sense to keep that part of my business going. Instead, membership is going to be point based. I do not plan to change this again. My income will be from sales of Paper Bead Rollers, downloads for people who don't want to be a member, books I publish in the future on Amazon, templates and template bundles, ads on the site and YouTube revenue.

All downloads, that cost points, no matter what level you are at, will now cost 20,000 points each unless otherwise noted on the individual pages.

The Bead Crafter

The Bead Crafter

This paper bead roller is no longer available but it is the very first tool I had to roll paper beads. I ordered it from a copy of the magazine "Crafts" back in 1996. This is where my addiction to making paper beads started! I actually still have this crank style tool along with the booklet that came with it!

After about 10 years of using it, the 1/16" winding pin came out of the crank handle so I decided to design my own and what is where my handmade crank style paper bead roller came into being!


Crank Style Bead Roller

The Paper Bead Machine

I used to offer the instructions on how to make this but since offering the hand held paper bead rollers, I decided to remove them from the site. Basically what it was, it had a wooden base with 2 3" angle brackets screwed to it facing each other about 2½" apart. I used a couple of cotter pins to make the winding pins in 3 different thicknesses. I sold a kit and instructions which included the special paper beads I made to make the winding pin handles with. I did not sell enough of them to make offering them worth while.
