Introduction: The 5min Note-making Bracelet
Have you ever needed to make notes and reminders at your handy and paperclips to attach papers? try this bracelet, which is actually made of chained paperclips linked together, also able to attach small notes and reminders on the bracelet itself. The bracelet multiplies itself into paperclips when needed. you can also gift it to a person who tends to do paperwork often. The great thing is that you can make this simple on in just below five minutes while it saves it's time and productivity. Because I believe that simplicity is the greatest sophistication
My answers to the Make-To-Learn contest:
What did you make?
I thought gifting my friend who forgets small things and keeps reminders often. I started to think about reminders and paperwork, and suddenly got this idea. I didn't make any initial sketching because it was a very simple one, and i made it just below five minutes. the whole bracelet is made of chained paperclips which can be removed and used as a paperclip when needed. also, some small reminders and notes could be attached to the paperclips too.
How did you make it?
I first linked one paperclip into another. As I was joining it, the unity of the sides differed. so I had to link it in a way that the clips are united in shape and form a good bracelet, and also found out that it does not break up when stretched.
Where did you make it?
I made it mainly at my home, It was also a simple one, but after I gift it, the person whom I gift was happy because it helped to save his time by keeping paperclips and reminders in handy. After that, I also made one for myself which gave results that is truly promising and helped me to save time.
What did you learn?
It is really true that even small things can bring a lot of changes and especially while speaking about this project. there was not any big challenge to say because it was a simple bracelet even though that linking was a bit difficult. It is surely a simple and good gift, It also took a lot time to document this then making this.

Step 1: Things You'll Need:
All you need for this simple project is
2) small papers used to make notes and reminders,
3) paint to color the shape of the notes,
And you would need this optionally for the type 2 bracelet:
1) A stapler with pins,
2) Hot glue.
Step 2: How to Make Type 1 Bracelet
The type 1 bracelet is made of paperclips, which is more of an easy timesaver. You'll need 7-8 paperclips, asper the wrist's size (The clip may also be below the number given initially as it all depends on the size of the wrist.) and it is recommended to have one extra clip attached to the normal size, which can be used when needed. To chain it, first bring the flat side of the first clip, and insert it into the outer end showing on the other clip, which makes the flat side of the first one coming to the shorter side of another clip when pulled down. Do this down by down until connected all the clips.
Now you have made the type 1 bracelet as it is so simple.
Step 3: The Type Two Bracelet
This is made by chaining stapler pins, even though we couldn't attach reminders to it or divide it to attach papers, but this version is simple and thin but also takes a lot of time to join it. to join this, first staple the pins without any paper. now straighten one side which is bent and insert that into the hole of another stapled pin. Now do this until the size fits the wrist. and the type 2 bracelet is ready.
Step 4: Making Reminders in Different Shapes.
It is february, and the reminder used here would be related to this month's important day.
Cut two pieces in the paper of the same shapes but he second piece a bit larger than first piece. (the shape taken here is an heart)
color up the first piece and write the message on the second(large) part.
now you can attach both of this in the type 1 bracelet.
Now the whole project came to an end.
I have to conclude this with two truths:
1) It is really hard to photograph with an iPod camera with it's clarity.
2) It takes a lot of time to document this than making this.
