Paper Bead Curtain - This Is A Throwback!

This is a project that I haven't finished, but would love to sometime in the future.
Paper Bead Curtain

First of all, do you remember making paper beads as a little kid?! I loved it! I had this little toy thing that helped you make them too. Anyway, I saw paper beads mentioned somewhere and it brought back great memories of making them as a child.

I've been looking for a way to conceal some of my closet since it's a built-in with no doors. I came up with the idea of a paper bead curtain, and hung a shower rod inside the top of my closet. I made the beads by cutting up pieces of magazine that looked awesome, and made long triangular strips. Then I used Elmer's School Glue to roll them up and harden them. I strung them on thread, putting round beads and sequins between all of the paper beads to make them hang straighter.
