Intro: Pleated Bangles (made From Cardboard)
These bangles are super sturdy, colorful and inspired by the spring runway shows. Make them in any size to fit your wrist and paint them in any way to match your style.
Step 1: See How I Made Them Here
Step 2: You'll Need
Draw 1" to 2" wide strips on your cardboard and cut them out
Rub one strip along the edge of a table to curve it
Hot glue it in a size that will fit over your wrist
Pleat two cardboard strips (about 1/2" folds or less)
Glue a pleated strip to the edge of your cardboard cuff
Continue all the way around
Spray paint the entire cuff in Krylon Metallic Gold and let it dry
Paint the bangle in an Americana Multi Surface Satin color that you like leaving some of the gold showing on the edges
When the paint dries, coat the entire cuff in the Americana Triple Thick Glaze and let it dry for at least one hour.
