One of my friends is an exchange student from Germany, and in a few days, she's heading back home.  I planned to make her a little going-away care package filled with things that were "Made in America".  Cheesy

When I was in a store looking for stuff to go in the package, I noticed some bracelets with pictures from comic books all over them. And what's more American than the spandex suit superhero? But the bracelets in the store were like 30 dollars each!! I figured that, if I made one, it would be way cheaper, and would still be made in America. So I got some comic books and plain wooden bracelets, and made these!



Captain America -


Batman -


Tomorrow, we're having a goodbye party for her, and I'll give her the whole care package (bracelets plus other girly things) then.

Oh, I love this. Out of cloth would be better for me, but I'm sure she will love it. I do.

This may not happen, since I have had major surgery on my shoulder.

Aww thanks! :-)

I just mixed a bunch of elmer's glue in with water (impromptu decoupage Smiley) until the consistency looked right. When everything was dry, I sprayed them with a layer of some sealant that my brother had lying around....think it was some Krylon spray.
Oh, and the bracelets had this coating all over them, so I sandpapered them a bit so that the glue would stick better.
