I have a new crafting love - decoupaged bangles!  They are so quick and easy to make, and the final product always looks fantastic.  I whipped up these four for a giveaway on my blog.  One is made out handmade Japanese paper, the others are all recycled: two from Anthropologie catalogues and one from a vintage pattern envelope and instruction sheet.  I'm really happy with how they came out!





If you'd like to make your own, I've posted a tutorial for these on my blog.  I'd put it here, but there are a TON of pictures, so I thought I would spare the 56k users. 

Thanks for looking!

Thanks, everyone!  123min123, the tutorial is currently on my blog, but if enough people want it, I can definitely post it here, too.  Let me know!

Murphy 88, I got my bangles at Michaels.  They are pretty inexpensive (about a dollar a piece normally, I think), but I got them for the dirt cheap sale price of 30 cents each!  I bought a ton!

Cute bangles! I love the idea of upcycling mags, catalogs and esp that vintage pattern envelope Smiley
