Paper Beads On Eco Kids Tuesday!

I wrote before about my friend, Nicole, and the awesome paper bead necklaces from Uganda she is selling to help fund the adoption of their little boy. These beads are a favorite thing around our house. The have many uses other than just a necklace. They are beautiful. Though I have a few, I wish I had hundreds of them. I would use them for everything.

These are just a few ways I have found to use my beads. I am sure there are many more.
