I recently made some wrist bands out of fabric, paper, contact paper, etc. They were easy and really actually kinda fun to put together. And here some of them are(sorry, my camera is a piece of...yeah, you know)


The first one(eiffel tower) is a cheap bookmark I had and then cut to fit the band. The next one is just some doodle-things I drew. The third one is really hard to see(thank you craptastic camera), but it is old-looking paper that has three creepy liitle men/dwarf things.

And the Eiffel Tower band in action!


And the doodle band in action! Sassy!


Oh and here's one made of this old mushroom fabric I had laying around:



If anyone has any question on how to make them, I'm here. They were too easy to make. And they are really comfortable.

Hey Melinda! They were really easy to make. All I did was cut out a strip of paper ot material, or whatever you want the cuff to look like. The strips I cut were all about 1-1.5 inches wide and 8.5-9 inches long to fit around my wrist. next I cut contact paper to cover the paper/material to make it sturdier. Then sewed a strip of felt the backside of the cuff to make it comfy(I stitched about half a cenitimeter from the edge on both sides). Last, I added snaps with thing that you hit with a hammer(you can get one at michaels for 4 bucks-more than worth it!)
And those were mu cuffs. Thanks for commenting.  Smiley

I got my contact paper from Michaels. You could probably find it at an office store thought. It's usually about 3-4 dollars for a pretty good sized roll and it lasts a long time. Hope that helps. Thanks for your comment.

I truly hope you can get a new camera soon!  Your wrist cuffs are great, but can you give advice about adding the snaps.  I bought snaps and the little metal thing that you hammer with and they just don't seem to snap right.  Did you have problems with it?
