step by step

After you gather your materials, this is how to make your very own necklace…



Step 1: Strip down your favorite zine into small paper parts.



Step 2: Roll away each paper strip + add silicon glue to the tip to keep in place.



Step 3: Continue rolling all your paper parts. Be alerted, it will get sticky.



Step 4: Cut your recycled paper tubes to the desired length. I cut mine unevenly for that asymmetric necklace look.



Step 5: Apply water base sealer to all your paper tubes + let dry for a few minutes.



Step 6: Poke each paper tube with thin needle + pass elastic fisher’s thread through.



Step 7: Keep going until you form your desired necklace design.



Step 8: Add your jewelry end to finish off.



Step 9: Voila! Que bonito! Love it!
