ever think what to do whit those straws left
well i got a answer !
in this instructable i will show you guys how to make twisted bracelets
and flat bracelet with straw,neon paper and stapler
IF YOU are using the used straws please consider cleaning them before use
also if this instructable is not working for you then
please let me know
so lets get started !
Step 1: Gathering the Materials
there are not much to say in this tutorial
and there aren't much materials to show you to
these materials are available everywhere so no need to rush to eBay or
some flea market !
*BALLPOINT PEN REFILL
*COLOR PAPERS (NEON)
Step 2: Adding Color to Straws
Take a straw it can be of any size but remember that it should be transparent or at least translucence
it can be bendable also it doesn't matter how it is at all!
take a small strip of neon paper of width less than a cm
and insert it inside the straw
make sure it doesn't bend in between
if it is not getting in than use a pen refill to do so
it should not bend in between or you can make its bracelet !
fold the strip for convenience
Step 3: Makeing Straw Flat
Now this is and important process of this instructable.
use a scale or something heavy to make the straw extremely flat
if the paper strip inside doesn't allows you to do so then then remove it and add a less
amount of paper strip to it
once you have finished it your straw should be extremely flat
you have to do this about 50-75 time for getting this
here is the difference shown in this picture
Step 4: Start Making Chains
once you get the perfect straw sttip you are ready to make chains
the chains are shown in these pictures
*HOLD THE FIRST END WITH YOUR HAND
*NOW HOLD THE SECOND PART OF IT WITH YOU HAND IN 90 DEGREE DIFFERENT FROM THE FIRST ONE
SO THAT IT WILL MAKE LIKE A CHAIN
*PRESS IT HARD WITH YOUR NAILS
*CONTINUE THIS CHAIN IF IT DOESN'T MAKE UP
THEN USE STAPLE AT THE DOWN PROTON OF CHAIN
*DO THAI UNTIL WHOLE STRAW IS COMPLETE
*JOIN THE LAST PART OF STAR WITH THE FIRST PART WITH STAPLER
Step 5: DONE !
NOW YOUR BRACELET IS READY
