Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Supplies
Snaps (Like those on a jacket; available at craft stores. I found the ones I used in the sewing isle)
Pen (optional, but recommended)
Socket (size depends on the size of the snaps; snap shouldn't fall through the smalller hole)
Step 2: Make the Ninja Stars
The amount of ninja stars you will make depends on the length of the bracelet. To find out how much ninja stars you should make, divide the length you want your bracelet to be by 2. If the number is a decimal, round down, and if it's a whole number, subtract 1. Each ninja star requires 2 pieces of origami paper to make. Follow steps 1-4 on my instructable on how to make a ninja star.
Cut a strip of duct tape and put it on paper #1 like in the picture.
Follow step 5. Be sure to tuck the flaps underneath the duct tape in part 4 in step 5.
Make the rest of the ninja stars.
Step 3: Attach Ninja Stars
Cut two strips of duct tape the length you want your bracelet to be. Stick them together back to back. Cut the sticky parts showing off.
Tape the ninja stars on. Keep some space on the left and right of the tape for the snaps. Don't be afraid to tape the ninja stars close together. When the bracelet bends, the ninja stars won't look squished together.
Step 4: Attach the Snaps
Draw a circle where you want a snap to be. If you had the same type of snaps i had, poke the spiky part through the duct tape. Then place the other end of one part of the snap on the spikes and hammer it in, putting the snap on top of the socket as support. Do that for all of the snap parts.
Step 5: Finish It Off
To keep the ninja stars from falling off, carefully take one flap out from the ninja star front, put some glue on the tip, and put it back in. Do that for all 4 flaps on all the ninja stars. The ninja stars might be stiff at first, but the more the movement, the more they loosen.
Congrats. U finished!
