A gum wrapper-ish bracelet with a twist pattern!
I saw this design on a site called Inna's Creationshttp://increations.blogspot.com/2008/09/origami-bracelet.html
but when I tried to follow the directions they seemed sort of backwards. Like you had to UN-weave the last piece to put the next piece in.
So I made one and took it apart, and figured out a way to weave it the other directions so the "next" piece just goes on top of the "last" piece.
Also different from Inna's directions, I folded my strips in to the center twice, like a gum wrapper chain, to hide the raw edges.
I used magazine covers. You want to use coated covers, but not the really really thick ones. (Martha Stewart Living is too thick).
I cut my strips 4.5" by 2". I used 22 strips, but my hands are quite small.
