a cute anklet/braclet made from the inside of security envelopes
i have been experimenting with security envelopes because of their great patterns, and best of all its all recycled.
Stay tuned for my other security envelope tutorials

for this anklet i made all of the beads from the envelope, added a few other beads some string
and hay presto!

This only took me 10 minutes max, and i didn't have to buy anything, this project would be a great gift, ect. PLEASE COMMENT and tell me if you like it ect and don't forget to ADD TO YOUR FAVES if you do

i guarantee that anybody could make this if i can at my age so have a go.

  • How to make an anklet. Recycled Envelope Anklet  - Step 1
    Step 1


    Gather your supplies
    *Glue( Craft glue works better than a glue stick but work with what you have)
    *a tooth pick (rubbed with vaseline, or paw paw ect)this step is very important because it prevents the beads from getting stuck to the toothpick.
    * security envelope pattern paper (or if your not recycling your prefered paper)

    this is the tricky bit starting with the wide end wrap the paper around the toothpick (make sure its got the vaseline on it)

    This is hard it took me a few trys to get the hang of it.
    because of the vaseline it won't want to wrap around, but once you get it around a few times it should be fine.

    congratulations you have made a bead, the hard part is over

    now while its still freshly made if the bead is a bit out of shape just fix it now

    once the bead is semi dry, carefully take it off the stick
    and set it aside to dry
