Description

You could do this with a whole range of materials, such as gum wrapper, paper or even magazine pages cut in to strips.

Instructions

  1. Small 1725

    Take a sweet or gum wrapper.

  2. Small 1726

    Fold the wrapper in half, width ways, and then unfold it again.

  3. Small 1727

    Fold the edges in, so that they meet in the middle.

  4. Small 1728

    Fold the wrapper in half again, with the edges tucked in, width ways and then unfold.

  5. Small 1729

    Repeat the previous steps and fold the edges in to the middle, width ways.

  6. Small 1730

    Fold it in half length ways to create a crease in the middle.

  7. Small 1731

    Now fold the edges in, length ways, so that they meet at the crease in the middle.

  8. Small 1732

    You should now have a little V shape.

  9. Small 1733

    Make a few of these.

  10. Small 1734

    Slip the two feet of the V through the holes in another V's legs.

  11. Small 1735

    Take a third V and continue this along.

  12. Small 1736

    Continue this with more and more folded wrappers, keep an eye on the pattern that is being formed so that you know which side to place the next folded wrapper in at.

  13. Small 1737

    Make a strip long enough to fit around your wrist, you could make it really big and then you could simply wear it like a bangle.

  14. Small 1738

    Pierce holes through the folded wrappers at both ends of the strip.

  15. Small 1739

    Slip a jump ring and jewellery clasp through one end.

  16. Small 1740

    Slip two more jump rings through the other end and you're done.
