Paper Beads!!! Plus Free SVG

Good morning. I just want to show off one of my new obsessions. I am now making paper beads. What a great idea.. I can combine 2 of my favorite crafts into one .... jewelry making and paper crafting. Below you will find pics . The first one is a new batch drying and the second pic is a couple finished beads. They feel almost like glass. People at work couldn't believe they were made of paper. As you can see by the picture, I turn a styrofoam plate upside down and put the beads on toothpicks and stick them in the plate to dry.  Plus as a bonus I have a svg file of my paper bead template to cut out of either chip board or what I did was cut 3 copies and glued them together. Makes it easy to just trace and cut your beads instead of having to measure every time. I am offering it for free.
