Paper Bead Printable Cutting Template, Makes 5/8" Long Bicone Beads
This template will help you to cut accurate paper strips for making paper beads!
The template included in this pdf file is designed to work with a sheet of recycled copy paper that is 8-1/2" x 11" in size. The wide end of the strips that you will cut out will be 5/8" wide and the narrow end will be down to nothing. This will make tapered or bicone beads.
This file is for use on the back side of 8½" x 11" papers of just about any kind from copy paper, scrapbook paper to card stock. You can use these templates in conjunction with the free paper bead sheet designer on the Paper Bead Crafts web site. The URL is in the file.
You can layer the strips to make fatter beads if you like. Using copy paper will result in a bead about ¼" in diameter. I used 1 layer of scrap book paper to make the sample beads.
The cutting lines are a light gray color and dashed so they will not show up much on the printed side of most scrap book papers. One way to use these is to use a scrap or recycled piece of copy paper for the template and cut it layered with your colorful paper for beads that do not have lines on the back side.
