Here is my paper bead display showing samples of all the paper tube beads I like to use. As you can see there are many different sizes and I think about this when designing my paper tube beads. It also helps me when designing a set of paper tube beads that I want to work together. Deciding on how they will be colored to work with each other, and what sizes I will need to complete the set of paper beads.

When you are decorating your paper tube beads you must primarily decorate a certain area on the top of your paper strips with the main design you want on your paper bead. These measurements come in very handy when designing your paper tube beads so that your finished paper tube beads all come out looking the same. The width of your paper tube bead does not have an effect when designing. Just the length of your paper strip does, as it must fit all the way around your finished paper tube bead.

2 inches                                               6/16  of an inch
