Paper Bead Workshop Offered By Keep Loup Basin Beautiful

Amy Hughes, Keep Loup Basin Beautiful (KLBB) Project Coordinator, invites adults and youth to come and join the fun of creating paper beads that can be used to make unique jewelry or add “pop” to those special accessories on, Wednesday, June 21, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. at the Loup Rivers Scenic Byway Interpretive Center, 330 S Hwy 11, in Burwell. Five different challenging bead shapes will be investigated and created.

Participants will learn how to reuse magazines to create these new, fun, and creative items, get to be the first to utilize the new paper bead making machines, learn about proper recycling practices, receive the “new” 2017 Recycle Guide, and get a list of upcoming KLBB Educational Projects and Programs.

The beads created at this workshop are eligible to be exhibited in 4-H at Fair. Participants are asked to bring magazines with colorful pictures or fun patterns, scissors, toothpicks, Elmer’s glue and most importantly your imagination.
