On the chosen paper, draw and cut out an isosceles triangle shape, right triangle shape, and a rectangle shape ( using Math here). Put some glue down one side of the paper strip and start rolling it around the chopstick . Apply some glue over the beads and let them dry. .When the strip completely glues on itself, take it out of the chopstick and place it aside to dry.Apply some glue over the beads and let them dry. You can make them shiny by coating with nail polish or modge podge.
