if you use lots of glue then it is quite strong. but not too much at once or it turns into mush, do one layer of glue (onthe inside) and just add more layers untill it feels sturdy. i tend to use a lot of glue just to be sure.

it says on the pack that they shrink to a third of the original size
the sheets i got are a bit smaller tthan A4 and i cut them into 4
peices lengthways, i think i said it was a pringals pack above,
well it was actualy a vegimite jar (the pringals pack was a failed
atempt,sorry) vegimite isnt sold in america for some stupid reason
(if anyone knows the reason id like to know) anyway the ones i
made dont fit many people lucky i have a small wrist, i havent
worked out the mesurements to make them any bigger

yeah you have to punch holes in them prior to shrinking, they become too brittle once they have shrunk to drill. and i used red wire to hold them together although ribbon would be very pretty and i might try it next time, the wire was cheap. i wont be selling any on the net, i have tryed to sell at a craft show and that went alright but i wont be doing it again i prefer to make things for the joy of making not to sell.

has anyone tryed play doh as a mold?
i havent used resin but i want to and im not one to spend money on molds. so is there any reason why i cant make a shape in the play doh pour the resin and things in then when it sets just remove the play doh, it would eliminate the need for the mold release stuff right? since i can just wash any little stuck bits of play doh off.

cuffs are hard as the sortof A4 size sheet is not big enough
 (it will shrink by a third so times the size you want by 3)
however you can join two bits together (i punch holes and use wire)
as for getting the shape you have about 10seconds once they are out of the heat to mold them i sugest using a cloth to protect you hands or gloves.

here are mine they are quite easy to make, id love to see your cuffs when they are done.

it took so long to make so i dont intend to make another
 so unfortunatly there will be no pictures with this tute.
im sorry if i am unclear please tell me.

ok step 1

cut paper into 2inch by 5 inch rectangles (you will need about 300)

step 2

fold each peice like you would to make a bubble gum wrapper chain
(lengthways in half, unfold, lengthways both edges into the middle crase.


now you have a long thin peice. fold it in half

and then unfold and fold the edges into the middle crease)


http://www.gumwrapper.com/build.htm

step3

make the peices into chains (10x 20 peice long chains(5 for each side)
and 1x 100 peice long chain(to be made into a loop for the bottom sides and handel))



step4

(appologiese for the crummy drawings hopefully they will be clear enough when you are holding your work in progress)

position 5 of the chains so that all of the ends point up and glue them onto a peice of paper
without getting glue on the edges
(the edges will be that outside of the red line in a later drawing)

cut away the paper so the it cant be seen from the front

do the same to the other 5 but have all of the ends pointing down

now you have the two sides of the bag

step5

fold the outer triangles(those separated by the red line) inwardsso that they sit at 90degrese to the side.

so the the side is square but leave the top of the side alone as it dosnt need to be folded at all

step6

now we need the long chain

the folded in triangles should fit into the gaps between triangles on the long chain use paper and glue to hold them there from the inside (duct tape also works well but is less permanent)

do this to atach both sides to the long chain along the bottom and sides (this is why one side has its ends pointing up and the other down)

i did alot of fudging the bits into place so im sorry if the tute is unclear, just experiment untill it works out

yeah i bent them around a pringels packet, but i did it quickly as 10 seconds and they were too hard to bend. ill try to take a better picture of the designs as soon as i get a camera with a macro setting. i did draw the designs then i traced them onto the plastic and coloured (used almost all of the pencils down quite a bit)

thankyou. i basicaly just made lots of chains the length i wanted the bag the glued them to paper to make the sides. the handel is a long loop then i joined it all together with paper and glue and linded it with red paper. it is amazingly strong.

this was my atemp at a bag made from 'bg' wraper chain,
but i used magazine pages so the bag would be black and white.







it took so long to make so i dont intend to make another
 so unfortunatly there will be no pictures with this tute.
