Mark 1" at the end of the strip

Cut at least 500 mini book pages that are 1 1/4" x 2"

*You will be folding the 2" pages in half creating a 1 1/4" x 1" book

Fold 10 pages at a time to get the crease

Line them up one by one and hold them together with a clothespin

*You'll need as many of these as it takes to circle your wrist

Add E-6000 glue to the folds and glue them on the rough side of the leather

Keep pages upright with a wood block on each side so the dry properly

Glue the covers to each end with more E-6000

Add Velcro on the 1" overlap to close the bracelet once it's filled with book pages.

    Because it was her money to begin with. I do repairs, farming, building, etc. and she makes the money. Together we accomplish more than if we were both working for someone else. And you should see the size of our organic garlic bulbs, big as tennis balls!
