This is my first Challenge Entry, and I have to say it was a Challenge for sure! I decided that my main materials would be Sushi Nori and Tamale Wrappers. The pasta and fruit roll-ups came to me when I was at the store. (Hence the "International" title: Japan, Mexico, Italy, USA) The Twizzlers were another idea that didn't pan out, so I just gave them to a co-worker to eat. In the end, I think I only used about 10% of what I bought. But I used a ton of glue, Mod Podge, and some Hemp twine. So, without further ado, here are the photos.
My favorite set: Bracelet and ring.
Close-ups (the ring was made from a milk/juice lid):
The backs, so you can see that the bracelet is adjustable!
Here is a bracelet that is made with the Tamale wrapper that is sewed on the machine. I broke a needle and had to untangle the bobbin a million times. Looks cool, but really is a pain.
Here is a belt made with the pastas and the fruit roll-ups. I strung the pasta like beads, and then glued on the fruit roll-ups. I hope I never have to do crafts with fruit roll-ups again!
Bracelet with pasta: (I had so many more ideas for this, but ran out of time)
This one wraps around:
Thanks for making it to the end of this long post.
Enjoy, and DON'T FORGET TO VOTE!!!
