    This step is optional, especially if you are using a page from a magazine. Nevertheless, if you want your paper beads to look lustrous, you need to stick them to the toothpicks and apply a thin layer of varnish to the outer section of each bead. Set them aside until they are thoroughly dry.

    You are ready to assemble your paper bead cuff bracelet. Measure the size of your wrist and add about half an inch for a comfort fit. Cut the thin wire and double the size of your wrist circumference. Arrange your beads in your preferred order.

    Loop a crimp bead onto the wire, then string the first closure. Thread the coil back and toward the crimp bead again. Set the crimp on the closure with two strings of wire beside each other. Make sure the crimp bead and the closure are nestled with each other, not stacked on top of each other.

    Even out the crimp bead with flat-nose pliers to tighten the closure, leaving the coil tip. Thread the paper beads onto the wire to create the pattern.
