Here is a previous thread on a slightly classier (but maybe not as simple) snap cuff bracelet:

292  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Dorm Mural Ideas? on: April 26, 2004 07:01:30 PM
I am moving to a new dorm next year, and I just got an email that says Wednesday they are going to be painting the basement walls with designs or you can make your own. I am thinking about what would be good to paint that doesn't take too long. Possibly some rubber-stamp type silouhettes? I'm not sure what would be appropriate. Does anyone know of some good image sites for hip vintage style images? Kind of like the ones in the upper left corner of this site.
293  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Photo Snap Bracelet on: April 26, 2004 05:51:56 PM
I got a snap-making kit at the local hardware store and decided to experiment with jewelry I could make with it. I made a bracelet for my friend out of a photo she gave me.


The back closes with a snap:


It only took about 15 minutes. Steps:

1. I cut the photo into 2 long strips (the "back" side of the bracelet is another part of the photo)
2. I took a length of plain duct tape and layed the photos on top of it in a line, overlapping a little
3. I cut a piece of 3M laminating paper and put it on the photo. You could also use contact paper or clear packing tape
4. cut the edges of the tape off
5. attach the snap!

If anyone is interested, I can draw up a better tutorial, but it's pretty self-explanatory!

If you make a post-it patchwork bag, it might be hard to recognize that they are post-its. It could be cute to put just a couple on a black piece of paper and do the rest of what you or the others have suggested. It would be funny to have regular notes on it, like "buy milk," or maybe your favorite sayings?

I just finished my capri sun purse, but I don't have my sewing machine at school so I just made it with clear tape and duct tape.

You can get the sticky stuff off by rubbing it a little. I kind of rubbed it into one area and then scraped it off with my fingernail. Goof off or goo-gone might dull the finish of the bags.

It won't look as good, but for a small bag (or maybe a wallet or something) you could cover the pieces of magazine with clear packing tape.

I made one of these today and perfected the technique to make a second one, I'm going to make one for a friend soon so I'll take pictures. Then I should post in the completed projects forum? (sorry, I'm new here)

The kit is described in issue 7, which I recently picked up on clearance from Urban Outfitters. It doesn't really give a hint at instructions though, I guess they want you to buy the kit. I think the strap in the kit is seatbelt-ish material.
