I am making this right now. But I only have a wrap so I decided to put them on paper and draw over. And I'm going to decorate with deco tape. Thank you so much ;D

hey guys! i love this. i saw this about a year ago and it was in a store. i bought it and made one my myself ( just by looking at it). and it wasn't a bracelet it was a PURSE! hopefully, i will try to show you guys how to make one. Same thing as this but you have to make more, then sew them together, and add a zipper. So i will try to post in next few months.
