Introduction: Plastic Knife Bracelet!!

This was something inspired by all those wonderful new plastic spoon crafts available on the web. I decided to try making a cuff bracelet using a plastic butter knife. It worked out well I think. Let me know your comments and suggestions. Better yet let it inspire you to come up with something!

Materials needed:
Different colors of nail polish or permanent markers
Clear or colored plastic butter knifes
Medium sized pot
Water
Stove
Tongs

This is not intended for children without adult supervision.

Step 1: Boil Water and Shape Knife

Fill the pot with water and bring the water to a boil. Once it comes to a boil turn off the stove and using the tongs carefully place the knife into the water.
After a few seconds use the tongs to press the knife against the sides of the pot to begin shaping.
Continue to shape the knife until the ends of the knife are a little less than an inch from each other.

Step 2: Paint Cuffs

Now the fun part! Once you remove the new cuff from the water you can begin to paint it. It cools very quickly so don't worry about burning yourself. 
Use nail polish or permanent markers to color the cuff in and/or create designs and your finished!
