I made these for my sister's 14th b-day.  I looked for a tutorial, but I couldn't find anything other than directions for covering an existing slappy bracelet.  And then I had the bright idea to destroy my dad's tape measure and these suckers were born! Grin
Thanks for looking!

And now I'm wondering why I never figured this out on my own.

Fantastic job!

Oh my gawd.  Maybe now I can recreate the day-glo pink tiger print one I wore every freaking day in, like, 1991 maybe?  maybe 92, I would've been 7 then, and that seems right.  lol, anyway, thanks for the good flashback, and what a genius idea, you finally figured out their secret!

I LOVE THIS. unfortunately, my dad would kill me if i ruined his tape measure, which means i can't start making these tonight. no hardware stores open at 11pm.

I'm not attached to your world, nothing heals, nothing grows... we used to love ourselves, we used to love one another.

life is no cabaret- we don't care what you say, we're inviting you anyway, you mf'ers, you'll sing someday!

you can complain because roses have thorns or you can rejoice because thorns have roses.

You can't be on TOP if all you do is sit on your BOTTOM
