Do you ever think about what to do with those handles that come on paper shopping bags? Here’s how to turn some trash into treasure…
You will need the following tools and materials to make your wrap bracelet:
1: Pliers. Some flat pliers and round nose pliers.
2: Two flat crimp ends.
3: Two medium sized jump rings.
4: A toggle clasp.
5: A charm. I used this bead charm that I had made earlier.
6: Some cord from a paper shopping bag. The piece I had was long enough to wrap three times around my wrist.
Follow these steps to make your cord wrap bracelet:
1: Squash a crimp end around each end of the cord, secure each in place by squeezing it using the flat nose pliers.
2: Add a jump ring to the end of one crimp and slide on part of the toggle clasp. Close the jump ring to secure the clasp in place.
3: Add the charm to the jump ring.
4: Add the other jump ring and the remaining part of the toggle clasp to the other side of the cord.
Once the remaining toggle component is attached to the cord your bracelet is finished and ready to wear! I think that’s a pretty cool way to save some usable materials from finding their way to the garbage.
