|This week’s tutorial is something a bit different but one I’ve wanted to do for a while. You may have heard me talk about how arthritis in my hand spurred us on to make the current version of our bead rollers, but you may NOT know about the other physical obstacle I’ve had to overcome for this craft. BACK PAIN!|
I started paper beading over three years ago, but I wasn’t able to sit down at my hand cutter and cut enough paper strips to really dig into the craft, let alone make enough projects to fill a YouTube channel! So when I decided to purchase my cutting machine, it was a decision that truly changed my life!
You can hear all about it and see a quick tutorial of how to use a cutting machine to cut paper bead strips in this week’s video tutorial on YouTube.
This post and video are NOT sponsored. I don’t sell these machines. I just wanted to share my experience in case I can help someone else with these issues.
If you think you might want to purchase a cutting machine, I’ve added links below to the most popular cutting machines available to jump-start your research. These are Amazon affiliate links so if you click through and happen to buy, I may receive a very small bit of compensation. It does not affect your purchase price and I thank you for helping support these tutorials!
