Make jewelry with paper, one bead at a time. Lay a strip of paper face down. Keep in mind you will roll the strip up into a coil so you want to have the correct side showing.Dab petroleum jelly on the center of a toothpick. Use an amount of petroleum jelly that is sufficient enough to ease removal of the paper bead, but not so much jelly that it gets all over your fingers as you roll.
For the paper cup: Start with a square. Fold the paper in half upwards to make a triangle.
Fold the top corner down so that the edges meet, and unfold after making a line.
Fold the corner up so its tip meets the edge of the paper at the line you made. Next, fold the other tip up so it meets the corner you just created.
Fold the top flap down toward you. Fold the other flap down to the back side of the figure.
