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!
