homemade jewelry

today we used some old magazines and made necklaces with paper beads.  super easy for us non-crafters, really.
all you do is rip out a colorful page, cut loooooong triangles, roll it up from the base, using a glue-stick, glue at the end, and then thread it on a piece of string.
you can make necklaces or bracelets, for yourself or as a gift.  the materials are easy to find, it's easy to do - even Sam did it by himself once he got the hang of it, and it's a fun way to recycle!
here are all my boys wearing these cool necklaces. what a bunch, huh?  what good sports!
