cool comic cuffs
I realized the plastic tubes that my Crystal Light drink mix is packaged in is the perfect size for bracelets.
After cutting out the shapes I needed, I rounded the edges and evened things out using scissors. None of my measurements were exact- just eye-balled it. I made more, will publish them once they are finished being varnished. :D

  • Step 1

    pardon no pics of process, will add later.

    get plastic crystal light tube container.
    remove the outside paper.
    decide how wide your cuffs will be and cut one side, cut out bottem of tube.

  • Step 2

    cut 3-4 bracelet shapes out, then trim the edges.
    spread out the comic images you will use, decide if you have enough to wrap around edges. if not, you can cut extra shapes to glue on.
    using a paint brush and fingers, spread mod podge on your bracelet and on the back of your comic image.
    then glue on, tuck edges around.
    after this dries, shape your bracelet further and smooth out rough edges. re- mod podge. dry for as long as you have patience for, at least a few hours, then spray them with plenty of clear shiny varnish. try to not touch them for at least overnight. now you have cool wrist cuffs-people will notice!

Perhaps a stupid question, but what's a crystal light container?

I'm new to this type of craft. What tool do you use to cut heavy plastic like a Crystal Light container?

Actually, the crysta light container is thin enought to use regular scissors on!
