Wondergirl is working for truth and justice - and recycling!  I didn't make the wings, Granny bought those - but I did make the cuffs (drat that granny buying things before I can make them!).

Easy silver cuffs:  (or any color, I guess)
Cut vertically down the side of two plastic yogurt containers - (remove a 1/4 inch strip), then cut the bottom off.  

Lay the resulting plastic cuff on top of some silver lam fabric, and trace around it, about 1/2 inch from the edge of the container.  While you're at it,  trace around some heavy grey posterboard, too, but a little under the size of the cuff.

Cut the lam out.  Spray spray adhesive on the fabric and the yogurt container, and lay it on as flat as possible, folding that extra 1/2 inch to the inside (spray to stick to inside, too, as needed) - no need to be tidy on the inside. Let it set/dry.

Glue the poster board to the inside - it should be just shy of the edge.  I used craft glue. Let it set/dry.

Cut out some hook and loop fastener - I glued the rough side to the outside, and the soft side to to the inside.  I used gemtack, and held it on with "bulldog" clips until dry.  (Let it soak through the fabric to the plastic so that the fabric doesn't pull when unfastening.)

Disclaimer - these will only stop invisible pretend bullets! But they do stop landfill buildup!  These were just a fun 15 minute (not counting glue drying time) experiment that I thought I'd share - they turned out much better than I thought they would, and are very very durable!  Maybe I'll try these for coffee cuffs, next...

C and Q always welcome!

Thanks!  We're debating making a WW costume for halloween, or just continue wearing the cuffs everywhere (grocery store, errands, out to eat, etc.)  Never know when they may be needed for defense.   Roll Eyes
