First using the knife carefully cut the paper straws around 2cm long. These will become your paper beads
Now start assembling the necklace by inserting your previous cut pieces and regular beads into the cord
Try different combinations and be creative, either filling all the cord or just covering the middle.
Once you are happy with your design measure the length around your neck and tie the necklace’s clasps at both ends.
To secure these ends add a dot of glue, let it dry and cut the excess threads.
