If you are making tapered beads, you can layer and roll 2 or more strips together to achieve the diameter you are after. Or you can make the wide end of your first strip the actual length you want the bead to be and the narrow end the same width as the width of the wide end of the 2nd strip. Have the narrow end of the 2nd strip be the strip that has the printed picture on it.
Set your printer to print either portrait or landscape depending on what beads you make. This will also be set in the program also.
You will choose which way to orient your paper and printer.
If your printer is capable of printing borderless and you don't want a white margin on the side of your paper, set up your paper to Letter Borderless in your printer set up and then put all 4 margins to 0.
If you are printing an allover sheet, make sure to tell your printer to print the background colors and images. If you have a newer browser, the all over sheet should display your image as a tiled image in the dimensions you chose, otherwise, you will get a right and bottom margin that is white.
In other words, the quarter taper image is 1/4 the size of the wide end which has no picture. Depending on what diameter bead you choose, the orientation of how to print out the sheets will be displayed for you on the sheets. You will have the pictures on either side of the sheet, staggard. To cut these out, just put your ruler on the outside edge of the graphic at each edge and make diagonal cuts from one side of the paper to the other.
Variable Taper Designs
When you choose a variable tapered bead, the sheet will be printed on the left and right side of the sheet of paper in a solid strip as many times as indicated above with the length. You can then cut variable widths of tapered strips and there will be color on the outer edges of the bead as well as in the center of the rolled bead.
When you choose sideways oriented bead, the browser will have the images across the top as many times as calculated for the length of the bead. The height of each image is a set height according to which diameter size bead you choose to make. Make sure to scroll down to the bottom of the page to see what orientation to print out the sheet. When you cut and roll these beads up, the image will be sideways on the bead.
All Over Designs
You can use the all over designs for what ever type of bead you want. Tapered looks best but you can also cut each individual image out and wrap it around a different colored core of paper such as construction paper or recycled paper of any type. When you choose to have an all over design, the clipart will be sized just like when you are choosing to make other types of beads. If the measurements are not perfect, the right edge and bottom edge will be adjusted so it will fit on a sheet of paper so it will look distorted. Set your printer's letter size to Letter Borderless to eliminate the border. You can do this if your printer is capable of borderless printing. Otherwise, just set your printers margins to the smallest margins possible.
