This is a bracelet made out of paper. I usually use 30 pieces (10 each) for a small size and 36 pieces (12 each) for a big size, but experiment a bit to find your size. I usually use post it notes cut into four pieces. Lastly, I use three colors, but you can use any number, from one to every piece a different color.

Step 1: Folding

It's kinda hard to explain the folds, so just follow the pictures.

Step 2: Keep Going!

Make all 30, or 36, or however many you're making.

Step 3: Putting It Together

Time to make the bracelet! Please, please use glue. Otherwise it will fall apart on your wrist :-) Divide your pieces in half. I, for example, have put 6 of each color aside. Follow the pictures to form a ring with this half.

Step 4: Putting It Together 2

Make a group of three. Make more until the second half is used up. Then, attach them one at a time to the ring.

Step 5: Wear It!

...or give it as a gift! My experience is that people like getting these as gifts. Enjoy!
