Introduction: DIY - Corrugated Paper Bracelets

About: Artist-designer, Aline upcycles cardboard and turns it into unique furniture, home décor and visual displays, inspiring people to create more sustainable art.

I will show you how to make a colorful bracelet with corrugated paper sheets. You can also use old magazines.

I did these bracelets with my students during a workshop, it works well with 8-10 years old girls. After a couple demo of how to trace and cut, they managed this activity very well.

Step 1: Materials

  • Pencil and ruler
  • Scissors (or cutter knife + a cutting mat)
  • White glue
  • Mod Podge + sponge brush
  • Bamboo skewer stick
  • Corrugated paper sheets
  • Black stretch string for jewelry (or simple black string)
  • Some beads (optional)

Step 2: Step 1

Trace and cut several 7 inches long x 1 inch width triangles – Pick different colors and make a lot

Step 3: Step 2:

Roll the triangles around the skewer stick gluing all the way through. Hold it for few seconds and let dry

Step 4: Step 3:

Seal and make the beads shiny applying Mod Podge. Let the beads dry (tip: drill holes in 2 recycled cans to build a drying station).

Step 5: Step 4:

Mount the beads on a string and design your own bracelet. (Tip: I use a piece of cardboard to keep the beads from sliding off the string).

Tie it up and do another one!
