Step 1: Materials Required

  • Colour painted sheets
  • Scissor
  • Scale

Step 2: Getting Started

To make a folded paper bracelet you need to begin by cutting lots of strips of paper. The strips need to be 12cms x 3cms (bigger or smaller as long as the size ratio is 1:4). For each bracelet, you’ll need between 16 and 22 strips, depending on how big a bracelet you want to make. 18 strips are used in the bracelet in the picture.

Step 3: Craft Work

Begin by folding your strips into the basic shape

Step 4: Basic Construction Technique

Refer to the above photos and keep adding strips!

Step 5: Keep Adding Strips…

Step 6:

And eventually, you will have enough to make a bracelet, remember it needs to fit over your hand when it is done, so don’t make it too small!

Step 7: Finalizing

and you are done!

Step 8:

folded paper bracelets turned out even better than I remembered! The colours of the paintings looked fabulous all folded together.

    Not only are these adorable, but I think your pictures are gorgeous. It's super helpful to have your steps ON the pictures as you craft!
