Easy DIY bracelets
Here’s What you Need:

brass cuff bangles
Scrapbook paper
Band or Trim
hot glue gun and hot glue
scissors
Mod hodgepodge Matt
brush

instructions:
First you need to cut a small triangle out of your paper. You can test the fit of the cuff. If it is too large or too small adjust it to fit, or make another one, until you are satisfied with the shape and fit.
Then cut out some small triangles from your scrapbook paper with the first triangle as a template.
Start by painting a thin layer of Mod-hodgepodge Mat on the back of your first triangle piece. Press on the bracelet and smooth.
Then paint a thin layer of Mod-hodgepodge Mat on the second triangle and press this a little bit of the first triangle and on the head. Smooth on the cuff.
Repeat with the other triangle pieces until you have them filled, the bracelet, and reach the other end. Space them apart just a little, so that the brass shows in and between forms. Finish by swiping a thin layer of Mod smorgasbord of over the top to seal.
For the arrow bracelet, I followed the arrow on my paper ends, and then cut the pieces a little in the lines of about one-sixteenth to one-eighth of an inch.
Then I painted a very thin layer of Mod smorgasbord on the back of each piece of paper and applied them to the corresponding shape on the arrow at the end. Then I painted a layer over the top. I glued the ribbon on with hot glue on the high temp setting.
I love how this little DIY bracelets become! I just had some scraps of cardstock I had on hand, but you could>do the same with any type of paper, fabric, Wallpaper, etc.
they are fun to wear on their own or together. I hope you guys try this technique with a sleeve or two of your own at some point. It’s really easy and fun!
