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.

Another view:

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)
